BMX cycling is a very popular activity among young people and it gets more popular every year. The bicycle is designed especially to allow performing difficult stunts and riding on almost any surfaces. It is a great way to spend time outdoors with friends, to exercise and develop one’s fitness. There are diverse advantages of BMX cycling regarding both body and mind.
Physical benefits include great muscle development. Legs receive much pressure because riders basically stand on a bicycle instead of sitting. Arms get stronger as well due to directing the BMX bicycle and holding it still when landing after various jumps. Along with the limbs, the whole torso, press and back exercise too because every body muscle is involved in performing stunts.
BMX cycling helps burning many calories, saturating the blood with oxygen, developing concentration, visual space perception, and coordination. Mental benefits include self-confidence, good mood, and interesting time spending.
Obviously, as any other active adventure activity, BMX cycling is quite risky. One may get different traumas such as cuts, bruises, sprain, dislocations, and fractures. Even using protective items and having some good level of experience can’t guarantee your complete safety.
