Unfortunately, I have the joints of an 80-year-old woman.
Seriously. Walk with me up or down a set of stairs, and you’ll hear my ankles and knees make all sorts of ungodly noises. I blame my dad, who also has crackly joints, for this problem.
Needless to say, anytime I run or participate in other high-impact activities, my knees and ankles remind me the next day. Luckily, I discovered a low-impact, high-intensity cardio option this semester . . .
As you can see below, it’s on the schedule this week for Wednesday’s workout.
Week of 11/13/13 to 11/19/13
Wednesday: 45-minute cycle class
Thursday: Upper Body Superset Workout + 15 minutes of steady-state rowing
Friday: 75-minute vinyasa yoga class
Sunday: Total-Body Circuit Workout
Tuesday: Stadium conditioning class or I’ll wing it
I’m obsessed with spinning and try to attend one or two classes per week. However, the class times don’t always work with my schedule. Luckily, I spent some time on Pinterest and found a few printable indoor cycle workouts I can do on my own.
If you’re like me, you probably like how instructors help you push your limits. Hopefully these plans, some of which are timed to specific songs, will provide motivation while working out solo.
Let me know if you try one of the workouts! I’ll be sure to incorporate at least one into my fitness plan in the next few weeks. Enjoy! 🙂
Have you ever attended a cycle/spin class?
