Have you ever done a great cycle workout on a spin bike? Seriously, if you haven't you are missing out. It is one of the best interval training methods when you are looking for optimum fat loss results. I prefer a spin bike to the usual exercise bike that you would find in a gym because it gives you a much smoother ride experience. It also feels more like you are riding a real bike. The only downside to a spin bike is that you cannot see what level you are working at so it is harder to compare your progess. But that is a sacrifice I am willing to pay for a better workout. I am going to be hitting my spin bike this arvo for a big interval training session. I recently purchased a second hand one for a steal - $65 from a gym that I train some clients out of who were going through an equipment refit. That is a steal for a Schwinn bike that granted, may have had 3 years of hard use, but it is still a lot better than the older one we used to have that was on it's last legs. My workout today will involve me doing Tabatas on the bike - 20 seconds sprinting flat out followed by 10 seconds of recovery. This goes on for 4 minutes - 8 rounds total. I'll be going through this for 3 rounds - 16 minutes of total work. It is a really tough workout that really gets the heart rate going. I use Workout Muse for my audio soundtrack. I just press play on the iPod and it tells me when to work and when to rest. I don't even have to look at the stop watch. Seriously, this product is well worth your investment.
