Does anyone have a workout that you made. I use Spinervals, but would like to make my own program example: 2x 2 min climb, 5x 1mile fast spin...

Hello,

I'm on a racing team, we do team spin classes once a week for 12 weeks. I have all of the workouts but it would not be appropriate to share this material with the world. I hope you understand. But! I will share some of my favorite things from our workouts.

Everything we do on the trainers is intervals. Here are some of my favorite interval sets:

Great Warmups

(5:00 Warmup in 39x19)

:30 Seated - 90 rpms

:30 Standing - 85 rpms

2:00 in 39x21 - 90 rpms

2:00 in 39x19 - 90 rpms

2:00 in 39x17 - 90 rpms

2:00 in 39x19 - 90 rpms

2:00 in 39x17 - 90 rpms

Example Intervals

(15:00 Leg Speed Interval)

Hopefully you have a computer on your bike to measure cadence (and time). If you don't know gear numbers then here's a pic of a 9 speed cassette (because you can count 9 cogs)



Using this picture as an example, a common size of a 9 speed cassette is 12-23: (smallest to largest) 12;13;14;15;16;17;19;21;23. The number basically refers to the tooth count on each cog. The smallest cog furthest away from the wheel would be the '12' and the largest cog closest to the wheel would be the '23' in this example.

For my intervals, the 39 and 53 refer to the front chain rings. Many bikes come with either double or triple rings. I have a double so my bike is a 53 ("the big ring"), 39 ("the small ring") in the front.

So interpret the intervals as the following if none of these numbers work for you:

Gears closest to '21' in the back are easy.

Gears in the '39' in the front are easier
