40–50% of the average adult male is muscle, as is 30–40% of the average adult female. Muscles are so named because sometime around the early 1500’s, the rippling of bicep muscles while they flexed were observed to resemble small mice scampering under the skin. (The word musculus means “little mouse” in Latin.) It is easy to understand the workings of mouse-like muscles in an arm or leg. But what about one deep inside your back that looks more like a pencil?
Back pain is one of the most commonly heard complaints by physicians. Back pain occurs as the result of overuse, strain, and poor posture. Usually the pain comes from the muscles ligaments and joints and not from the spine.
There are many causes for back pain including problems with the bony lumbar spine, issues with the discs that are located between the vertebrae, or the cause can be seen in the ligaments around the spine and discs, or the spinal cord itself and the nerves and muscles of the lower back.
The internal organs of the pelvis and abdomen are also examined for possible cause. Pains in the upper back can be attributed to major blood vessel disorders, chest tumors, and inflammation of the spine as well as the usual cause of muscular or joint problems.
Of the many possible exercises that can be used to strengthen a personÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s back one of the best suited to someone suffering from back pain is using a stationary cycle. This is because riding a stationary cycle can build strength in the back muscles, diminish pain and make the spine healthier.

If on the other hand you like all the gadgets, the mileage counters and the calorie counters, you can spend much more to get one like that. A new one with gadgets can easily cost five hundred dollars.
