Well it burns a ton of calories, upwards of 400-1000 calories in an hour. Plus it doesn’t matter how fit, flexible or coordinated you are, you just need a positive attitude. I’d say it smokes a 40 minute run that barely burns 300 calories.
It’s hard, but it’s not impossible and like I said the pay offs are worth every pedal stroke. Classes are typically between 40-50 minutes in length (warm-up & cool-down combined) with varying paces and intensities.
Have the instructor help you set up your bike according to your body and try to remember your settings for the next time.
Don’t be afraid to push yourself; you can always pull back. It’s extremely important to add resistance or “road” not only to challenge yourself but to support yourself. Zero resistance does absolutely zero except strain your hip flexors.
No, ladies your legs won’t get big. High intensity interval training will burn fat, get you lean and toned. Add extra yoga and incorporate foam rolling.
1. Get there at least 5 minutes early to set up and warm up.
2. Breath and try to find a little comfort within the ‘discomfort’ or challenge, don’t grip and bear it with aggression.
3. Bring water and a towel.
4. Wear pants versus shorts and a supportive sports bra and a sweatbands are always a great accessory!
Spinning incorporates your entire body full body workout, not just legs so activate your core to stabilize your entire body especially during touch backs.
1. Make sure to have enough resistance so that you get stronger and burn calories
2. Activate your outer and inner thighs to keep your knees from splaying out or buckling in.
3. Relax your neck and shoulders and keep your bodyweight out of your hands and arms.
4. Pedal with flat feet, pressing through the ball of your foot.
Invest in a pair of spin shoes (or at least rent a pair), for more effective power and control– they really make the ride!!
This is hilarious!!!… Inspired by ‘The Spin Class Song by LMFAO, Jimmy Fallon and LMFAO don’t let high-intensity spin biking interrupt their flow, and you shouldn’t either!
