When it comes to why cycling, many people will say: lose weight.

However, many people may not only fail to lose weight, but riding legs become thicker. This is one of the reasons why many beauty-loving girls do not like to ride bicycles.

Today we will talk about why your riding legs become thicker.

First of all, cycling is a real scene, you will meet some cyclists and find that their leg muscles were thicker than you.

In fact, we can first take a look at the figures of high-level athletes in professional cycling events, and maybe we can give you some references.

In the days of the Sky Team, everyone’s body was still very well-proportioned. Even Froome’s body can be said to be a bit thin and weak, while the cyclists of other well-known teams are almost all similar in body shape.

Maybe you would say that a sprinter like Gleipel is not thin at all, then you can look down.

Unlike the long-distance racers like the Grand Tour, the characteristics of the track race are completely opposite. It seems that this has also created the distinctive leg muscles of most racers on the field.

These strong leg muscles give people a feeling that you can step on 500W with just one foot, and you can burst Froom in minutes!

The Gleipel mentioned earlier is a sprinter in the Grand Tour. They don’t refer to the championship but have a clearer division of labor and goals.

This is how the body shape difference between GC drivers and sprinters comes from. It is a bit difficult for a sprinter or a field racer to win the Tour de France championship.

It’s not difficult to understand, let’s compare running with a broader sports foundation. The most common marathon runners almost all look like lean monkeys.

On the other hand, the hundred-meter flying people on the track and field are all “big drumsticks.” Do you let Bolt run 40 kilometers?

The question of whether this leg will be thick is also easy to understand: sprint thick and long-distance fat loss.

The more clear point is: aerobic becomes thinner, anaerobic becomes thicker.

Recall your cycling habit. Do you like frequent rocking sprints? Full speed at the start? Xiaofei stepped hard on the market?

Maybe not only the legs are getting thicker, but I also suggest you check your knees.

Of course, this is the main reason, and it cannot be generalized to all situations. For example, stretching after exercise is equally important. This is also a step that many people easily overlook. Rest directly after exercise without stretching.

Stretching helps you to remove acid or improve muscle lines. It is recommended that you do it within 10-15 minutes after the exercise, and the duration of each exercise is 30-60 seconds to be more effective!
