Sometimes, if I’m feeling feisty, I like to put my iTunes on shuffle when I teach. More often than not it makes for a surprisingly exciting and hyped up class.
There’s always those certain songs that REALLY get the people going, though. So, I went with that and put them ALL on one playlist. The result, was one super awesome cycling sesh.
Fireball – warm up
Firework – alternating saddle & standing climb. add resistance periodically
Started from the bottom – start in the saddle climbing, add resistance until out to 3. Keep with the beat.
GDFR – Jumps on a hill for the chorus, then climb at 3. Add resistance after each set.
Tom Ford – 4 count tap backs. (1-2-3-tap…1-2-3-tap)
Turbulence- seated climb, power out to fast standing climb at 3 when you hear ‘we hit turbulence!’
Til its gone – option to start climbing in the saddle or out of the saddle. Whatever you chose do that for the first half of the song, for the second half switch. Add resistance periodically
Uptown funk – standing flat for most of song, add resistance and speed it up @3 for ‘uptown funk don’t give it to you’ for 20 seconds then slow it back and take it to a standing flat. repeat
Gas pedal – heavy standing climb @ 3, when you hear ‘speed it up gas pedal’ hover… when you hear ‘twerk’ OPTION to push up and drop your weight back over the saddle then back up. (push up- drop drop drop- push up drop drop drop) Keep elbows in, back supported and weight in control if you do opt in to the option.
Boom- saddle for snoop, for TPain power out of the saddle to 3 speeding it up until last ‘BOOM’. take it back to the saddle, add a level and repeat for a total of 3 times out of the saddle.
Get Low- roller coasters. 3-2-1-hover etc. movement, control, form awareness.
TTU- Standing climb with beat. OPTION over chorus to do push up then tap back then return to 3.
American Oxygen – saddle climb entire song, 75 RPM, focus on form and mind body connection. Add a level every minute.
My songs know what you did in the dark – saddle for verses, power climb at 3 for chorus.
Don’t tell ’em – standing climb. Speed it up for ‘don’t tell em..’ chorus.
See you again – cool down
This was a great crowd pleaser and killer work out! I hope you enjoy!
