When you hear the term "exercise bike" you typically picture the classic upright stationary bike. They are one of the most popular cardio machines of all time. They are compact, affordable and provide an exceptional calorie-burning workout in the comfort of your home. Deciding on which upright stationary bike to purchase can seem daunting. There are many options available, each designed with specific fitness levels, budgets, and spaces in mind.
What exactly makes an exercise bike "upright"? It's all about your body position. If your body sits above the bike as if you are on a traditional mobile bike then it is considered an upright bike. If your body is in a reclined position then it is a recumbent bike.
An upright bike gives you a consistent workout that is closer to the same workout you would receive when riding outdoors. They engage your core and provide a full body exercise due to your position while a recumbent mostly focuses on your legs.
