Brycie's Out of Control

This is a Cycling pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 14105)

Hi,
I taught this format last week and my class loved it. This is a performance ride and a heartrate monitor is essential. If you don't teach by heartrate, perceived exertion will do. 85% of maximum heart rate (MHR) is very challenging and you feel breathless, as you are near your anaerobic threshhold. 80% is still challenging but is more aerobic. After warm-up and a seated climb, we did intervals of a standing climb for 5 minutes at 85% of max heartrate (MHR) with moderate to heavy resistance, followed by a seated sprint for 3 minutes at 80% of MHR with moderate resistance. When you go from seated at 80% to standing at 85%, try to get your heartrate up as quickly as possible with a jump start when you crank your resistance up. Then maintain for the remainder of the 5 minutes. No breaks until cooldown and the class lasted 45 minutes. The 80% will actually feel like a recovery!! I hope you enjoy this mix.

That's it! It's a kicker and will definitely help you and your participants to get more fit as you are working in Zone 4 for the majority of the class. If you have questions, please feel free to contact me.
