Interval Training

This is a Cycling pattern from (pattern 5698)

If you want you can add a few sprints to finish out they can vary from 30 seconds to 1 minute. Make the recovery period equal to the work period.

I usually do at least a 5 minute cool down and stretch. This class takes about 45 minutes. When you do the recovers they are always seated with light resistance. Sometimes we do a little upper body stretching while we recover. If anyone doesn't feel they have recovered have them skip the next workload. I tell them to really push the last 30 seconds of the work portion-they should really be feeling it!! If not have them increase speed of resistance. Remind them they will have 2 minutes to recover. I used a dance cd for this class-just put it in and go-can also use new age, techno-anything upbeat. You can also break the inteervals down into 15,20,30,45,60,or 90 second intervals, you can mix them up, do repeaters-it's very versatile. Have fun and work hard!!
