However, in here, we are not taking sides, so we will answer this question as straightforward as possible.
So without further delay, let’s get going…
The Fact That You Should Know
As we mentioned before, we are not taking sides in this article, and here is a fact that you should know…
Gymming and cycling are basically exercises, and that’s a good thing. You can say that both of them is a good thing.
Furthermore, if your goal is losing fat, then you should address the other big factor – your diet. Exercise only tries to create that calorie deficit. Hence, if calorie intake is too much and you don’t produce a calorie deficit, no amount of exercise can make you lose weight.
Another thing that we would like to mention is that – it’s better to have both cycling and gyming.
Cycling is good for cardio, and if you do it right, you can switch on your body’s fat burning mode. Developing your muscles (like lifting weights) may not have a direct impact on the fat burn, but it does increase your metabolic rate; and that means that if you are just sitting down and doing nothing, you are burning more calories per hour.
However, since this is a bicycle-related site, I think we should enumerate some of the benefits of cycling.
Benefits Of Cycling
* Better Experience – since you are cycling outdoors, the scenery can additionally help when it comes to stress relief. Also, an hour bike ride is a lot more enjoyable compared to an hour in a stationary bicycle.
* Cheaper – bicycles do cost money, but you only pay for it once. The gym has a membership, which you have to pay over and over again.
* Convenient – with cycling, you just pick up your bike and go for a ride starting from your home. You don’t have to pack up some gym gear, and drive through traffic to get the gym.
Again, we highly suggest that you do both cycling and gyming if your goal is to lose weight in the long term. Cycling and gymming have its own purpose, and when it comes to this question, you are basically comparing apples and oranges.
