So using a recumbent bike. Basically with your recumbent bike you are going to have couple of adjustments on there but for the most part you are going to sit on the bike and then you are going to want to put one foot out and bend it slightly. Basically where that seat is set on there you are going to remember that number and that is going to be your adjustment for there so it is a comfortable cycle while you are pressing your feet out. Then depending on what you want to do, whether you want to burn fat or you just want to do some interval training, you want to get some cardio done and stuff like that you are going to have different programs on the bike itself. So you are going to have like a manual option where basically you are going to kind of dictate what heart rate you are going to be in. You might have some kind of circuit type thing where basically it is going to dictate what heart rate and how fast you should be going and things like that or you may have some kind of interval option where basically you are going to be on which means you are going to be going at a higher intensity for a certain amount of time and then you want it a little bit lower at another time. So as far as how to use it and adjusting to using it and again what your seat adjustments and stuff like that. You are going to want to sit in there, put one foot all the way out, make sure that foot can touch the pedal comfortably and then I would say pedal it a couple of times just to make sure that it is a comfortable fit and then you go from there.
