TRAINING GUIDELINES
Exercise is one of the most important factors in the overall health of an individual.
Listed among its benefits are:
• Increased capacity for physical work (strength endurance)
• Increased cardiovascular (heart and arteries/veins) and respiratory efficiency
• Decreased risk of coronary heart disease
• Changes in body metabolism, e.g. losing weight
• Delaying the physiological effects of age
• Reduction in stress, increase in self-confidence, etc.
There are several components of physical fitness and each is defined below.
STRENGTH
The capacity of a muscle to exert a force against resistance. Strength contributes to power and speed.
MUSCULAR ENDURANCE
The capacity to exert a force repeatedly over a period of time, e.g. it is the muscular endurance of
your legs to carry you 10 km without stopping.
FLEXIBILITY
The range of motion of your joints. Improving flexibility involves the stretching of muscles and
tendons to maintain or increase suppleness, and it provides increased resistance to muscle injury or
soreness.
CARDIO-RESPIRATORY ENDURANCE
The most essential component of physical fitness. It is the efficient functioning of the heart and
lungs.
AEROBIC FITNESS
Is an exercise of relatively low intensity and long duration, which depends primarily on the aerobic
energy system. Aerobic means "with oxygen", and refers to the use of oxygen in the body's metabolic
or energy-generating process. Many types of exercise are aerobic, and by definition are performed at
moderate levels of intensity for extended periods of time.
ANAEROBIC TRAINING
Is an exercise intense enough to trigger anaerobic metabolism. This means “without oxygen” and
is the output of energy when the oxygen supply is insufficient to meet the body’s long term energy
demands. (For example, a 100 meter sprint.)
7
OXYGEN UPTAKE
The effort that you can exert over a prolonged period of time is limited by your ability to deliver
oxygen to the working muscles. Regular vigorous exercise produces a training effect that can increase
your aerobic capacity by as much as 20 to 30%. An increased VO2 Max indicates an increased ability
of the heart to pump blood, of the lungs to ventilate oxygen, and of the muscles to take up oxygen.
THE TRAINING THRESHOLD
This is the minimum level of exercise which is required to produce significant improvements in any
physical fitness parameter.
OVERLOAD
This is where you exercise above your comfort level. The intensity, duration and frequency of exercise
should be above the training threshold and should be gradually increased as the body adapts to the
increasing demands. As your fitness level improves, the training threshold should rise. Working
through your program and gradually increasing the overload factor is important.
PROGRESSION
As you become more fit, a higher intensity of exercise is required to create an overload and therefore
provide continued improvement.
SPECIFICS
Different forms of exercise produce different results. The type of exercise that is carried out is specific
to the muscle groups being used and to the energy source involved. There is little transfer of the
effects of exercise, i.e. from strength training to cardiovascular fitness. That is why it is important to
have an exercise program tailored to your specific needs.
REVERSIBILITY
If you stop exercising or do not do your program often enough, you will lose the benefits you have
gained. Regular workouts are the key to success.
WARM-UP
Every exercise program should start with a warm-up where the body is prepared for the effort to
come. It should be gentle and preferably use the muscles group to be involved later. Stretching
should be included in both your warm-up and cool down, and should be performed after 3-5
minutes of low intensity aerobic activity or callisthenic type exercise.
WARM DOWN OR COOL DOWN
This involves a gradual decrease in the intensity of the exercise session. Following exercise, a large
supply of blood remains in the working muscles. If it is not returned promptly to the central
circulation, pooling of blood may occur in the muscles.
8
HEART RATE
As you exercise, your heart beat increases. This is often used as a measure of the required intensity of
an exercise. You need to exercise hard enough to condition your circulatory system, and increase your
pulse rate, but not enough to strain your heart.
Your initial level of fitness is important when developing an exercise program for you. When starting,
you can get a good training effect with a heart rate of 110-120 beats per minute (BPM). If you are
more fit, you will need a higher threshold of stimulation.
To begin with, you should exercise at a level that elevates your heart rate to about 65 to 70% of your
maximum. If you find this is too easy, you may want to increase it, but it is better to lean on the
conservative side.
As a rule of thumb, the maximum heart rate is 220 minus your age. As you increase in age, your
heart, like other muscles, loses some of its efficiency. Some of its natural loss is won back as fitness
improves. The following table is a guide to those who are “starting fitness.”
Age Target Heart Rate 25 3035404550556065
10 Second Count 23 2222212019191818
Beats per Minute
138 132 132 126 120 114 114 108 108
PULSE COUNT
The pulse count (on your wrist or carotid artery in the neck, taken with two index fingers) is done
for ten seconds, taken a few seconds after you stop exercising. This is for two reasons: (a) 10 seconds
is long enough for accuracy, (b) the pulse count is to approximate your BPM rate at the time you are
exercising. Since heart rate slows as you recover, a longer count isn’t as accurate.
The target is not a magic number, but a general guide. If you’re above average with your fitness, you
may work comfortably a little above that suggested for your age group. The following table is a guide.
Age Target Heart Rate 25 3035404550556065
10 Second Count 262625242322222120
Beats per Minute 156156150144138132132126120
Don’t push yourself too hard to reach the figures on this table. It can be very uncomfortable if you
over exercise. Let it happen naturally as you work through your program. Remember, the target is a
guide, not a rule, a little above or below is just fine.
Two final comments: (1) don’t be concerned with day to day variations in your pulse rate, being
under pressure or not enough sleep can affect it; (2) your pulse rate is a guide, don’t become a slave
to it.

MUSCLE SORENESS
For the first week or so, muscle soreness may be the only indication you have that you are on an
exercise program. This, of course, does depend on your overall fitness level. A confirmation that you
are on the correct program is a very slight soreness in most major muscle groups. This is quite normal
and will disappear in a matter of days.
If you experience major discomfort, you may be on a program that is too advanced, or you have
increased your program too rapidly.
If you experience PAIN during or after exercise, your body is telling you something. Stop exercising
and consult your doctor.
WHAT TO WEAR
Wear clothing that will not restrict your movement in any way while exercising. Clothes should be
light enough to allow the body to cool. Excessive clothing that causes you to perspire more than you
normally would gives you no advantage. The extra weight you lose is body fluid and will be replaced
with the next glass of water you drink. It is advisable to wear a pair athletic shoes.
BREATHING DURING EXERCISE
Do not hold your breath while exercising. Breathe normally as much as possible. Remember,
breathing involves the intake and distribution of oxygen, which feeds the working muscles.
REST PERIODS
Once you start your exercise program, you should continue through to the end. Do not break off
halfway through and then restart at the same place later on without going through the warm-up stage
again. The rest period required between exercises may vary from person to person.

Figure 4. Place the saddle bracket (F), onto the
horizontal saddle tube (G). Hold the saddle in
position and tighten both hex nuts on the bracket
securely. Slide the horizontal saddle tube (G)
through the cavity on the saddle post (H). Figure 5.
Position it as desired and tighten the knob (S).
Insert the saddle post (H) into the main body (A),
position it at the desired height for exercise and
tighten the saddle post using the adjustment knob
(T) in clockwise direction.
ADJUST THE SADDLE HEIGHT
Figure 4. Loosen the saddle post adjustment knob
(T) slightly by turning it counterclockwise, move
the saddle to a position comfortable for doing
exercise and then tighten the adjustment knob (T)
securely by turning it clockwise.

Figure 6. Monitor
Figure 6. Attach the monitor bracket (n) to the handlebar. Then attach the monitor (m) to
the bracket. Connect the computer cable into the jack on the side of the computer.
EXERTION SETTINGS
Figure 7. To provide an even level of exertion during exercise, this machine is equipped with
a tensioning control (Z), located on the stem of the main body (A). This provides various
exertion settings when turned. To increase/decrease pedal resistance feel, turn the tensioning
control (Z) until the exertion level best suits your exercise requirements.
During exercise, the flywheel will get hot due to the braking effect, so when you have finished
exercising it is advisable to set the tensioning control (Z) to minimum in order to help stop
the brake shoe from hardening.
16
Important:
Figure 7. This tensioning control (Z) is linked
to an emergency braking system which, when
applied with force (as shown in Figure 7),
produces a much sharper braking effect.
LEVELING
Once the unit has been placed into its final
position, make sure that it sits flat on the floor
and that it is level. This can be achieved by
turning the adjustable feet (13) up or down.
MOVEMENT & STORAGE
Figure 7 and Figure 8. There are wheels (15) at
the front of the unit making it easier to move
into a chosen position. Push down on the
handlebars to lift the rear of the unit up slightly
until the wheels touch the floor and roll the
bike to the desired location. Store the unit in a
dry place, preferably not subject to changes in
temperature.
