30-MINUTE INDOOR CYCLING WORKOUTS

30-MINUTE INDOOR CYCLING WORKOUTS

Weekly Schedule

Day One: 30-minute ride

Day Two: Cross training. For example, yoga, stretching, resistance training, all of which can be done at home, with the help of some online classes. Or have a trainer set a program up for you to follow.

Day Three: 30-minute ride

Day Four: Rest

Day Five: 30-minute ride

Day Six: Cross. Again, it could be yoga, stretching, or resistance training, all of which can be done at home, with the help of some online classes or have a trainer set a program up for you to follow.

Day Seven: 30-minute ride

With the above schedule note that Day 7 is a ride day. Therefore, the next day is the beginning of the following week. In keeping with 4 rides in per week I suggest Day 1 to be scheduled as an easy spin recovery ride, where you keep the bike in the small chain ring and in an easy gear to help the recovery process of the previous day.

30-Minute Ride Suggestions

1. Spin-ups
• 10 minutes easy spinning to warm up
• 5 sets of the following:
• Put the bike into a moderate gear and begin to gradually start to increase the cadence over 1-minute.
• Follow with 2 minutes of easy spinning, in an easy gear to recover.

• Finish off with an additional 5 minutes of easy spinning to fully cool down.

2. Ladders down

3. Pace and spin
