As I begin preparation for my third IHRSA as a Stages Master Educator, I can’t help but think back to the ICI/Pro Podcast that started it all. I’ll never forget the one line e-mail I received from John Macgowan. He simply asked, “Why are we not working together?” That one e-mail changed my life. John gave me a forum to share my ideas and philosophies about indoor cycling and helped me get “discovered” by the team at Stages Indoor Cycling. Over the next few weeks, I’m going to share some of my favorite posts from the www.indoorcycleinstructor.com website.
Ride Profile: “A Little Bit of Everything”. This is my “Go To” profile. This workout, like the title says, is a little bit of everything. Riders will work on all energy systems and all types of riding. At some point in this workout every rider will work on both their strengths and weaknesses. The ride will start with a warm-up followed by a Threshold Check. The first set will be a longer “around threshold” ride. In the second set riders will perform three, 2-3 minute, “above threshold” intervals. The Third Set is a sustained “Race” effort. The workout will conclude with three 1 minute max efforts.Click below to read more.
