Exercise Information
Before starting
Tailor your exercise program according to your physical condition. If you have been inactive for several years, or are overweight, you must start slowly and increase your time on the equipment; a few minutes per workout increase is advisable.
Initially, you may be able to exercise only for a few minutes in your target zone, however, your aerobic fitness will improve over the next six to eight weeks. Don’t be discouraged if it takes longer. It’s important to work at your own pace.
Please remember these essentials: · Have your doctor review your training and diet programs to advise you of a workout routine you should adopt. · Begin your training program slowly with realistic goals. · Monitor your pulse frequently. Establish your target heart rate based on your age and condition. · Set up your equipment on a flat even surface with adequate training area, as prescribed in this manual.
Exercise intensity ts of exercising, it is important to exercise with the proper intensity. The intensity level can
be found by using your heart rate as a guide. For effective aerobic exercise, your heart rate should be maintained at a level between 65% and 85% of your maximum heart rate as you exercise. This is known as your target zone. You can find your target zone in the table below.

Beats per minute (bpm)

100 Up to 55%
80

Intermediate aerobic Effective fat burning

25 30 35 40 45 50 55 60 70

Age

rst few months of your exercise program, keep your heart rate near the low end of your target zone as you exercise. After a few months, your heart rate can be increased gradually until it is near the middle of your target zone as you exercise.
To measure your heart rate, stop exercising but continue moving your legs or ngers on your wrist. Take a six-second heartbeat nd your heart rate. For example, if your
six-second heartbeat count is 14, your head rate is 140 beats per minute. (A six-seconds count is used because your heart rate will drop rapidly when you stop exercising.) Adjust the intensity of your exercise until your heart rate is at the required level.

Exercise Information
Muscle chart
Aerobic Exercise tness of your lungs and heart – your body’s most important muscle. Aerobic
tness is promoted by any activity that uses your large muscles (arms, legs, or buttock, for example).
Weight Training Along with aerobic exercising which helps get rid of and keep off the excess fat that our bodies can store, weight training is an essential part of the exercise routine process. Weight training helps tone, build and strengthen muscle. If you are working above your target zone, you may want to do a lower number of reps.
Targeted Muscle Groups The exercise routine that is performed on the exercise bike will develop the upper and lower body muscle groups. These muscle groups are highlighted on the muscle chart below.

Exercise Information

Warming up and Cooling down

Each workout should include the following three parts:

1. A warm-up, consisting of 5 to 10 minutes of light exercise. A proper warm-up increases your body temperature, heart rate, and circulation in preparation for exercise.

2. Training zone exercise, consisting of 20 to 30 minutes of exercising with your heart rate in your training

zone. (Note

rst few weeks of your exercise program, do not keep your heart rate in your training

zone for longer than 20 minutes.)

3. to reduce post-exercise muscle soreness
