It has been proven that driving alone can help you burn calories. Between 120 and 135 kcal to be precise, according to the sex of the person and his corpulence. So what if you trade your usual vehicle for a quad that is, you have to admit, much more physical to master?
How many calories will I spend for one hour of quad?
Driving a homologous quad requires concentration, but it also requires the entire upper body musculature but also, to a lesser extent, the legs and buttocks.
In other words, this is a complete activity! The arms, back, abs and legs work together to keep balance and master the quad. Concretely, if you practice for an hour without stopping, you will burn more than 350 calories.
If we take into account that a trip in quad rarely lasts an hour but rather two or three, we quickly understand how interesting this sport is!
Can I get other benefits?
Quad riding is related, in terms of effects on the body, to sports such as alpine skiing for example or even climbing. Basically, it’s great for developing your cardiovascular abilities.
In addition, the main element with the quad is the aspect of fun, adventure and great outdoors that should not be neglected because this cocktail reduces the effects of stress dramatically.
How to practice?
It is obvious that it is not easy, and not necessarily recommended, to practice the quad every day but a weekly outing is a steady pace but powerful! However, the quad can complement other activities such as cycling, running , climbing or swimming.
To improve with motor sports is neither illusory nor a utopia . These activities require coordination, concentration, reflexes but above all, they keep you in shape, it’s undeniable!
