Indoor Cycling Class: Run, Baby, Run

Running (also referred to as a Standing Flat) is a drill that doesn’t get the attention it deserves in my opinion. Not only it is challenging to perform, but also offers a great opportunity to improve pedaling technique while standing, develop endurance and work on smooth transitions in and out of the saddle. I decided to focus a whole ride on this great drill. See how it turned out!

Cycling Class Profile and Playlist: Ain’t No Mountain High Enough!

Hey-hey, guys! The weekly indoor cycling class profile and playlist post is here for you 🙂

This time I kind of “slacked” on creating a brand new cycling class profile and playlist from scratch. Well, not entirely. 🙂 I did something fun and meaningful for me as an instructor.

What I did for this class was this: I took the playlist and routine for my Ride #2, yes, that’s right – it was the very second class I ever taught! I then went through the routine and changed it up to improve it based on what I learned in the past years since I first taught this class.

It was a great experience – I think I’ll be doing this every few months. It’s wonderful to see the progress I’ve made since then.

Anyway, I kept the playlist the same and “re-mastered” the class profile.

As you probably noticed from the class name, it involves a lot of climbing. But hey, ain’t no mountain high enough for my super riders!
