Board dead? Time to liven it up I guess. Will biking give me this body?

/n/ has its own pace and doesn't need shit posts to move it along.

In any case your question belongs on ---> /fit/.
>>
Confirmed shitpost, but no it won't.
It will allow you to be lean enough to have such muscle definition - but it won't give you a great torso like that.
>>
not wearing those shoes it wont.

if you spend some time out of the saddle you'll work your abs, lats, and some biceps and in the saddle you'll get massive triceps and some shoulders.
plus [spoiler alert] legs and bum [/derp]

but you'll still have an ugly head.

>Board dead? Time to liven it up I guess. Will biking give me this body?
nope
(most) bicycling is an endurance sport, like running. you get scrawny from doing it a lot

the semi-exception is velodrome/sprinting, but they don't get those huge thighs from riding, they get them from weightlifting and not riding a lot
>>
A person pedalling a bike uses energy more efficiently than a gazelle or an eagle, so, as someone already said, biking is too efficient to help you burn 'lots' of calories / gain muscle.
>>
>>904226
>Cycling is too efficient to expend energy with
I know what you mean m8, every time I try to burn some kilojoules on my bicycle, my speed increases to c before I even break a sweat, preventing me from going any faster and expending more energy. Damn this efficiency!
>>
>>904261
He's still not wrong.

You're burning far more calories just being alive than you are biking.
It takes more energy to power your kidneys than it does to ride a bike, even at sanic pace.
You aren't expending anything on a net scale.

Most exercise is that way, though.
Otherwise nobody would be fat.

>>904299
I thought the rule of thumb was 2.5 miles of biking is equal to 1 mile of running? If you can bike even at 15 mph then you'll be burning calories easily.
>>
>>904299
Nope. Just look up what an average pro cyclist eats during a big tour like the TDF. Puts even a dedicated hamplanet to shame, and they still lose weight.

Of course your average fatty on his half hour casual loop round the block won´t need that much energy. But its possible to burn huge amounts of calories if you are trained for it. Eating right is a big part for all endurance sports. Even a halfway serious cyclist can easily double his calory requirements if he spends a day on the bike.
>>
>>904331
Ok anon, let's not group ourselves into pro riders that are 30+ years old. My cycling computer says 100km is like. 300 calories for 25kilometers an hour average.
>>
>>904326
That seems a bit overgeneralized. Riding a bike can be as high intensity as short-distance running, or even less taxing on your energy than walking for the same amount of time.

/n/ everybody

>>904358
you've never riden a bike. if you did you'll know that you should keep your elbows bent to absorb vibrations and also to be a bit aero. never ride with locked elbows.

thank me later for this free advice when you've finished fapping to pics of toy trains.

Isn't swimming also good for that?

Also how is table tennis low impact, you're running back and forth over short distances, right?

is
>you've never riden a bike. if you did you'll know that you should keep your elbows bent to absorb vibrations and also to be a bit aero.
Are you serious? Do you honestly think that because you put some moderate (and I'm being generous with that adjective here) strain on your triceps due to nonlocked elbows you'll get triceps development?
Guess driving a car also gives you huge deltoids because of all that wheel turning and huge quads due to that pedal pushing. Let's not forget the bulging biceps that is sure to impress all the ladies which you'll get from eating by lifting the fork from the table to your mouth.
>>
>>902257
What's wrong with the shoes?
>>
>>904887
I wouldn't say I fully agree with the other guy but I can add my own experience. During the summer months I bury the roadbike deep within my bike closet and take out the mountain bike for some trail riding. Riding steep technical trails all day can at least give your arms a good workout. During fall/winter my upper body is scrawny while I focus on roadbiking and endurance. Then spring/summer my upper body gets nicely toned with the gnar DH and jumps.

Biking takes about 1/3 the energy of walking. A 9 mile bike ride at 10mph uses about the same energy as a 3 mile walk at a normal pace.

It's better than nothing, but it's typically nowhere near enough to see any gains.

Starting from what? If you have muscles underneath and want to trim up, maybe.

But if you look like a fat bastard to begin with than no. you will most likely look like a normal person with thicker legs.

It will however make you feel great, and save your ass money compared to other hobbies, like owning a sports car and getting diabetes.

Dumb post bro
Even pro sprinters who actually need those muscles don't train them on the bike.

Dumb logic sis.
Maybe you sit too far back and have no weight on your arms. But when you're leaning forward and supporting some weight with your arms and have elbows bent then your triceps are going adapt.

post a pic of your massive tris and shoulders from riding a bike lmao, if anything, it'll make you smaller, especially if you're serious enough to cut weight and not lift weights for upper body lmao.


Riding a bike for arms is retarded, you wouldn't do bench press with 2 pound dumbbells for 5 hours straight and expect to get big shoulders and chest would you? this is exactly what it's like supporting you body on a bicycle...
>>

no, but you will get ED and never have a full erection for as long as you live. Studies show just 3 hours a week on a bike is caput for your captn john and his loyal seamen.

Endurance no. Track/sprinting you use upper body to power down. That muscle comes at a price, extra mass, needs more blood and power becomes drained. I am 6,2. 190 lbs. I suck at endurance, decent sprinter.

That's a sprinter. Sprinters work out all their muscles in the gym because they contribute to their explosiveness.
Same thing with sprinters in athletics, pic related. Are you now going to argue that running fast gets you huge delts and traps?
>>
>>913368
Wouldn't upper body muscle help with climbing on a hike as well, since you're standing up out of the saddle and have to use your arms to counteract the forces you're putting through the pedals?

Enough upper body endurance to hold your bod up for a while, but remember, the more upper body you have the harer it'll be to climb.. and the more you'll have to support.


You do'nt really need much size or strength in upper bod because 90% of it is on your legs no matter what.

Is it worth lifting weights to maintain upper body muscle mass while using cycling as your main method of exercise? Is it possible to perhaps make strength gains while lifting and cycling at the same time?
>>
>>913474

Yes.
Up to a certain point, yes.
>>
>>913474
Yes.
Yes, provided you eat enough.
>>
>>913474
Just do a little bit of everything in the gym... It's.Not like cycling hits all of your leg muscles evenly. You will notice it when you go to squat and you struggle to control the weight on the downward motion but have no trouble bringing it back up. I personally care more about over all strength than I do about looks or being a good climber or speed in general.
