During the winter, there are many days of cold, rain or snow that often do not invite you outdoors to play sports. On those occasions when there is not enough light, but we have the need or obligation to train to obtain results, there is a solution: to adapt. And how is that achieved? We can choose to use a training roller adaptable to the bike.
It is a device that is fixed on the back and allows you to pedal without moving your bike. It is like an exercise bike, but with dimensions and geometry already known to the user. It may seem boring, but it doesn\'t have to be that way if we set ourselves personal training challenges. In this blog post we want to give you some tips if you want to practice cycling at home.
Choose the right roller: there are different types of rollers: magnetic, wind, hydraulic and electric. Any of these can be used to work at home, but you should keep in mind that it fits your training needs. Take good advice at your local store.
Use a suitable room: look for a room that is large enough and well ventilated, as you can sweat a lot. Sometimes a fan can help to keep the air flowing. It is also very important that the room is well insulated. The latter is especially important if you live in a community of neighbors, as some appliances can make considerable noise.
Breaking the monotony of pedalling: cycling between four walls can be very boring, especially if you schedule long training sessions. Therefore, we recommend you to try to look for distractions: music, radio or television. Precisely with this last device you can take advantage of it to follow virtual training programs in which you can even pedal together with other users over the Internet.
