Tips for using Equipment Tips
What is the difference between exercising on a recumbent cycle compared to an upright cycle?
The primary difference is in the area of comfort. The recumbent has a larger seat base and a back rest to support the user. Traditionally, most have considered that a recumbent cycle placed more emphasis on the glute. This is mostly in perception based on two things: 1) the hip is in a flexed position giving a stretch to the gluteal muscles and thus the sensation of tension, and 2) the user is sitting on the muscle itself making them more aware of its contribution.
What is Constant Power?
This mode is really what it sounds like. There is a set level of resistance and you must push against it. Increasing your speed (pedaling or striding faster) will result in the resistance feeling easier. Inversely, decreasing speed will make the resistance feel harder.
What is Isokinetic Mode?
This mode of operation is sometimes called 'accommodating resistance.' In Isokinetic Mode you’ll set a specific RPM (Revolutions Per Minute) to pedal. As you attempt to exceed your set RPM, resistance will be applied to keep you there. Dropping below your set RPM will result in a decrease in resistance.
What is Bike Mode?
Bike mode is designed to simulate real world feel. Like on a regular bike, as you pedal faster your speed will increase and the resistance (watts) will increase proportionally. Changing gears (levels) will increase how much the wattage ramps up as your speed increases.
What are the different MODES of operation on the 750 Cycles?
CYBEX 750 Cycles have three different and unique modes of operation: Bike Mode, Constant Power mode, and Isokinetic Mode.
