Spin Class [- Class]

If you’re looking for a way to jumpstart your workout, I find that this quick routine on a stationary bike (the one where your legs are BELOW your waist) reminds me of a mini spin class, minus the instructor. I usually keep mine at 10 minutes as something to tack on to another cardio routine, but you can certainly extend the workout to go even harder.

Note: The resistance level is maintained at level 13 for the entire workout.

  • 0:00-1:00: Moderate pace, seated
  • 1:00-2:00: 10 second jumps (alternate sitting and standing)
  • 2:00-3:00: Moderate pace, seated
  • 3:00-4:00: 10 second jumps (alternate sitting and standing)
  • 4:00-5:00: Sprint (as fast as you can go), seated
  • 5:00-6:00: Moderate pace, seated
  • 6:00-7:00: 10 second jumps (alternate sitting and standing)
  • 7:00-8:00: Moderate pace, seated
  • 8:00-9:00: 10 second jumps (alternate sitting and standing)
  • 9:00-10:00: Sprint (as fast as you can go), seated

noodlegirl ~ Absolutely! It is definitely challenging trying to develop routines on a bike when you don’t have an instructor. I hope this helps – let me know if you try it and what you think!

Hi Im a stay @ home mom and my schedual doesnt allow me to get to the gym as often as I would like. Im currently trying to lose weight and I just bought a spin bike from my gym. I am having a really hard time coming up with a routine that makes me sweat like the ones at my gym. Help

hi,
you can wake up early 20 minutes in morning and do exercise. 3 times per week is good for spin bike. For me I usually stay late at night to working when my son sleep well
