Spin Core: The Counter Intuitive Workout
Equipment: Indoor Cycling Bike
Some things don’t make sense. For example, hot water freezes faster than cold water. For those of you running late for class, and feel a short workout (20 – 30 minutes) may not be worth it, check this out: Researchers found moderately overweight men who exercised hard enough to sweat for 30 minutes a day lost an average of 8 pounds over three months compared to an average weight loss of 6 pounds among men who worked out for 60 minutes a day.
What? A 30 minute workout generally produces 30 minutes of effort. Whereas a 60 minute workout has more “effort breaks” – you know you have a full hour so you take more rest breaks. A short workout is often the BEST thing you can do! It can actually be the BEST Spin session! So hop on and ride with Master Mike.
