Both are exclusively cardio machines and will do little or nothing to build strength and increase musculature. Cardio is a component of a fitness programme however it is not the best one to use for fat loss since it will burn muscle as well as fat if used exclusively. The differences between the two machines are more in the mechanics of the action and not the benefit of one over the other as a cardio workout.


It is called WORK-ing out for a reason.

I said getting fit was simple, I did not say it was easy.

Cardio burns calories, strength work burns fat.

Eat well to lose weight, exercise to get fit

You can not build a six pack using twelve packs


Often when we seek a magic bullet for fitness we end up shooting ourselves in the foot.

Both are bikes and lower impact than, say, running. But, they are a little different and work your body a little differently. I personally feels it works my quads harder than an upright stationary bike. But, I feel the upright burns more calories. I guess I would exclusively use one over the other and perhaps utilize both if you have that option. After all, your body adapts to doing the same exact thing all the time.

Does riding a recumbant stationary bicycle have the same advantages as riding a
standard stationary bicycle?
