Cycling is a physically demanding sport that is good at maintaining your fitness with intensive exercise, but it’s not the only aspect to consider when it comes to improving your health. Here is some advice for improving your health as a cyclist.
Smoking can be very damaging to your health, causing illnesses such as cancer and reducing your lung capacity which can hinder your ability to breathe effectively when cycling. If you’re a smoker, it’s advised that you try and quit so you can improve your health and cycle better. Vaping is an effective way of quitting smoking, with an Elf bar vape from HAYPP being a convenient and cost effective alternative to traditional tobacco products. Vaping an Elf Bar can satisfy your cravings for nicotine without all the harmful chemicals of tobacco, and many places let you vape them indoors.
As a cyclist, your body should very much be your temple and maintaining a healthy and balanced diet is an important part of this. Eating a good diet will help you to have the right amount of energy when you’re cycling, preventing you getting drained too quickly and improving your performance. Ensure you eat the recommended amount of fruit and veg each day and include a variety of food from the different food groups.
