also, does a stationary bike that doesn’t have resistance to it burn a good bit of calories.? Does the stationary bike work all of the leg muscles and firm and or build them up too? Anyone have any experience with this subject? Thanks

It won’t help you burn many calories if it doesn’t have any resistance. If you add the resistance, yes, it will firm up and tone the leg muscles and burn a lot of calories if you ride hard enough. It will strengthen the legs, but you shouldn’t "bulk up" from riding.

    Most stationary bikes are setup for comfort. So they won’t work your abs out like a street bike would. I’m guessing it still works all your leg muscles but I’m not 100%. It should still burn a lot of calories depending on how long your on it.

    it sounds kind of funny that your bike doesn’t have resistance. A simple rule is if you put resistance on a muscle it will grow but they will also be firm.

    I have a stationary bike that only has low resistance because a part is broken. Had it fixed once but it broke again a few months later. Anyway, I rode it all winter for the training effect and it works fine for muscle development if you ride at least 20+ min. (Mine is a recumbant so don’t think it works the glutes much but definitely the quadriceps.) I bought a new bike this May and can ride 6-8 miles with little muscle soreness because of pre-training on the old broken bike.
