There are gonna be days where your mind is telling you to hop on the bike for some heart pumping cardio, but your body isn’t quite on board. Your brain knows best, so try this compromise: a moderate intensity cycling class that gives you the option to push up the effort level when you can and then dial it back just when you need it. No excuses, let’s get it done!
If you’re like some of us (ok, most of us), you live to sweat… even on your “rest” day. This 20-minute low-intensity cycling workout is a great way to do that while still giving your muscles the relief they need. Riding to an ultimate mix-up of country and hip-hop tunes, you control the gear, making this ride as easy (like if you’re coming back from a break in your fitness program) or as difficult as your body needs. So, let’s turn up the heat, but keep it on low!
This workout does not include a cool-down, but we have some great options here!
TRX straps allow you to do some of the best low-intensity exercises to improve balance while getting a killer total-body workout. In this body sculpting and stretch workout with TRX straps, we will use the straps for balance while working on lower body strengthening, and then as resistance for some amazing upper-body exercises. Then in the second half of the session, we’ll use the TRX straps for a super nice head to toe stretch. Anchor those straps up and let’s go!
No need to hang a horseshoe, because you can make your own luck! And this cool-down stretch circuit will be one of your best tools for your good fortune. Monica (using TRX straps to assist) and Bethany (using no equipment) team up to lead you through 7 simple post-workout stretches you can follow while listening to some relaxing country tunes in the background. Let’s stretch it out y’all!
Sometimes your brain may want to push it, but your body’s screaming to take a rest! Whether you’ve just completed a few days of hard-core workouts, you’re coming off of an injury or illness, or maybe you’ve just been away from your bike for a while, it’s time to listen to that body and choose this low-intensity indoor cycling recovery workout. This ride can be as much flat-road riding as you need it to be to give those leg muscles a soothing roll-out and get the blood flowing, but you can always pump up the resistance to make it tougher. Hop in the saddle and take it easy!
This workout with Best Friends, AJ & Monica, is so…much…fun! It’s a Virtual Cycle & Sculpt Workout designed not only for those that are in perfect shape, but also for those that are fighting some sort of disability or limitation like an injury, or in Monica’s case M.S. – yeah, she’s unstoppable.
The format is simple: Spin, Sculpt, Spin some more, then cool-down and stretch. For the resistance training exercises you can either use dumbbells or TRX straps – you pick! Let’s go have some fun!
This Indoor Cycling class is a particularly cool Spin workout designed for those who have some sort of disability and are looking to challenge their bodies and minds with an awesome online workout.
