Experimental study on the effect of outdoor cycling on the physical health of college students

Background and aims: Some studies reported that outdoor sports can help improve the physical quality and promote body health of college students. However, the influence of outdoor cycling on the physical health of college students was limited. We aimed to study the effect of outdoor cycling on the physical health of college students.

Method: 70 cases of college students were selected and divided into different groups for research through experiment and mathematical statistics.

Result: After experiment, the time for 3,000 m running of the observation group was significantly shorter than the control group and before; while the lung capacity of was higher than the control group and before (t=2.39, P<0.05); after experiment, the exercise intensity (30%) (χ2=6.25, P< 0.01), exercise duration (30 min) (χ2=6.44, P<0.01), and exercise frequency (less than 3 times) (χ2=7.47, P<0.01) of college students in the observation group were significantly lower than those of the control group, which were at least 80%, 60 min, and 5 times (P<0.01).

Conclusion: Outdoor cycling can significantly improve the physical health of college students with remarkable effects.
