The Benefits of Xdream workouts
You'll most likely feel better, perform better, sleep better and be more at peace with yourself and the world. Just look at the numerous health benefits that regular use of an Xdream may help you gain...
The heart is a muscle. Like other muscles, its performance improves when it is regularly challenged by exercise. The heart responds by becoming stronger and more efficient. That's why athletes have slow heart rates, around 60 beats per minute.
Arteries and Veins
Exercise reduces the amount of harmful low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and
fats in your blood. It increases the flexibility of the walls of blood vessels, thus
reversing hardening of the arteries (known as atherosclerosis). This helps to lower
blood pressure. There is even evidence that regular exercise helps evacuate LDL
cholesterol and other constituents of the plaque that accumulate on the inner
surfaces of blood vessels. This plaque is what clogs arteries, cuts off blood flow, and
is a major cause of heart attack and stroke.
Working harder increases the lungs' capacity to move air in and out. As a result,
more oxygen is drawn into the body and more carbon dioxide and other waste gases
are expelled. Regular exercise helps prevent the decline in oxygen uptake that occurs
naturally with aging and as a result of inactivity. But remember, when you stop
exercising, you lose all improvements in the functioning of your lungs in as few as
By helping muscles to take up glucose from the bloodstream and use it for energy,
exercise prevents sugar from accumulating in the blood. By burning calories, exercise
helps control weight, an important factor in the management of type 2 diabetes.
Control your weight
Muscles need energy to work. Energy is measured in calories. By burning off
calories, exercise helps balance the calories taken in as food. When we are
sedentary, the balance is usually tipped toward an excess of calories, which
accumulate as fat and additional pounds. When you are physically active, there may
be a deficit of calories, which takes fat away and lowers weight. Lowered weight
reduces the heart's load and is beneficial in diabetes.
When you exercise, bones and muscles work together. Just as muscles grow
stronger when physically stressed, bones also respond by getting stronger. Exercise
also increases bone density, which helps prevent osteoporosis, the condition in which
bones lose density, weaken, and become porous and very fragile.
Enhance your emotional well-being
Most people feel calm and have a sense of well-being after they exercise. Any anxieties they had before exercising are tempered or even gone. They feel better about themselves, less tired, more productive at work and more interested in sex. There's a chemical reason behind these emotional benefits. The release of endorphins and increased levels of serotonin in the central nervous system are associated with feelings of well-being, heightening of appetite, and lessening of mental depression.
Interval Based Workouts
Each trail has been designed and professionally structured to provide a total body interval based workout session. The interval exersion periods come from the regular climbing elements with the flats and downhills providing valuable physical recovery time. During the recovery sections you will find more emphasis on cornering with the upper body. AI riders provide intelligent pace settings for each user based on the individual's unique level of fitness and performance. Interval training is simply alternating bursts of intense activity with intervals of lighter activity. Consider the benefits:
- You'll burn more calories. The more vigorously you exercise, the more calories you'll burn - even if you increase intensity for just a few minutes at a time.
- You'll improve your aerobic capacity. As your cardiovascular fitness improves, you'll be able to exercise longer or with more intensity. Imagine finishing your 45 minutes ride in 30 minutes - or the additional calories you'll burn by keeping up the pace for the full 45 minutes.
- You'll keep boredom at bay. Turning up your intensity in short intervals will add variety to your ride and our X-Biking and VRX-Biking programmes can also shift the focus between upper, lower and core exercises.
- Lower Stress, More Stamina, More energy and a happier life!
