Cycle Classes at home
There have been questions about which cycle class video I use in my home gym. It really depends on the day, and whether I want to do a faster workout or focus more on hills. The video below is Les Mills RPM Release 73. It’s a bit of an all rounder really, and a good workout if it’s done correctly. At the moment, it’s my favourite. But I do like trying the different releases.
Being an oldie, I occasionally find the music a bit obtrusive in some of the Les Mills videos, but I don’t mind the music in 73. This instructor is one of my favourites, as I like her low key presentation style and instructive comments.
The main thing is to listen to the instructor explain technique, and be sure to turn up the resistance when told to do so. Try to follow her instructions for a beneficial workout. It’s best to concentrate on riding as fast as you possibly can in the fast sections. In the hilly sections, you will get the most benefit if you turn up the resistance as high as you can possibly bear it. It may take a few times doing a class, to get to that standard. But it’s something to aim for.
Hope you enjoy the workout.
