Hey guys – happy Wednesday! Remember to check me out over on FB today for #AskAmanda (where you can ask me anything about health, wellness, and nutrition – and if I don’t know myself I will find you the answer!).
For now, I just finished putting together my weekly Spin class playlist – and it’s a triple play! I like to segment my classes into manageable parts so my students feel like they’re going on a journey – and making progress throughout the class.
Before I go further, check this week’s song list:
What I’m doing here is building sets of three songs (after the warmup) that start with rolling hills, go into the “flats” (double time pace), and then build back up into a hill climb (third song in each set).
At the end of the ride, I offer a 3-minute (get it? triple play?) riders’ choice sprint where students can choose whether they want to work on tempo or resistance for three bursts of 40-second maximal efforts – heart rate bonanza!
I can’t wait to ride this one out with my class on Friday and next week!
What are your fave workout songs right now? Anything you’re Spinning to?
I’m so damned old-fashioned I listen to audio books when I work out. And I’ve never tried a spin class, which really gives away my age! :-0 I do get dizzy now and then after one too many glasses of wine, but that’s about it for spinning. 😉
If you were in LA I would make you try mine! My dad hasn’t but my mom came to one 😉
The image of you whipping your dad into shape on a bicycle and the strain and exhaustion on his face might be worth the cost of a plane ticket. 🙂
