The spinning or its generic name indoor cycle is one of the best known and most successful classes in gyms around the world. In this article we will see what benefits can be experienced from the first class. Improvements on the cardiorespiratory system Cardiovascular training although sharing benefits with strength, essentially improves parameters of the cardiorespiratory system such as increased maximum oxygen uptake, hypertrophy of the left ventricular cavity or mitochondrial synthesis and biogenesis.
If there is a gym class that is always full of people and for which, sometimes, you have to queue to get room, that is the spinning class or indoor cycle. Many of the people who see it from outside often think that it is possible for people to queue for such torture, but those who are inside giving pedals enjoy it as dwarves.
One of the most popular activities in all gyms is, without a doubt, spinning. A sports modality that has reached a large number of adherents and that requires a full effort always accompanied by fun. If you are one of those who still do not know what kind of exercise class can help you in your goal or you are not sure with what physical activity to start, today we give you four reasons why spinning can be a good option to start taking care of yourself.
One of the sections of the well-known program El Hormiguero de Antena 3, specifically in which Pilar rubio participates, consists of overcoming some challenges that are placed every week, having seven days to learn how to do a specific activity. A week ago he was proposed to learn a "choreography while spinning" (textual words from the Antena 3 website where the video appears) and then show it on the set along with other dancers.
The bicycle is in fashion, be it static, spinning or lifelong. It is a great way to get fit and work your bottom train and your core (you will need to activate it to maintain a good posture on the bike) while improving your aerobic capacity. Whether as training or as a means of displacement, the bicycle is gaining followers year after year.
As much as the years go by, indoor spinning is still in fashion: gym classes are always up to the flag and every day there are more people who decide to train in this discipline. If in your day we talk about the five things that we should consider in our first spinning class, today we bring you the five most common mistakes that are usually made in this discipline so that we avoid making them.
We continue with the series of posts in which we will give you five tips before entering your first class of different disciplines. Last week we started with Pilates, and this week we continue with another of the most requested classes in the gym: spinning. It is true that, if you have never entered a spinning session, it is a little scary from the outside: as a general rule you do not usually see yourself being able to endure so much time on the pedals or to keep up with veteran students.
Spinning is a discipline that continues to rise in number of followers: classes are always full, and students come to give it their all. The good vibes that are breathed in the sessions, despite the effort and fatigue, is reason enough to try it. In case you dare to enter a spin class, here you have my three essential elements.
Have I ever said that I love my job because I can combine the two things I like most in the world: sports and music. The spinning sessions are the perfect opportunity to combine these two passions and transmit energy to the students, and my favorite way to do it is through Trance music.
If there is something that I love about collective classes, it is that they combine the two things I like most about this world: music and sports. But perhaps in spinning classes more than in any other, music takes on special importance, becoming the backbone of the sessions.
Seen in the gym: you arrive for the first time at a spinning session, or a new instructor arrives, and without saying a word he starts pedaling. An error, from my point of view, is that there are certain points that must always be remembered before all sessions. What are we going to train, how are we going to do it or a reminder of the correct posture to keep on the bike should be among the first phrases of a good spinning instructor before starting a session.
One of the things that most often surprise people outside of spinning is the work behind each of the sessions. Plan the session, choose the music, make the mixes ... The work of the spinning instructors does not start or end on the bike. And is that aerobic exercise sessions, but especially spinning sessions are not improvised.
One of the big problems for instructors and students in spinning sessions is to control the intensity of the exercise. If we want to follow the effort correctly in a class in an easy way and that everyone understands we can use the Borg scale. Imagine a class with 80 bicycles, what indications can we give (or receive) to ensure that all attendees perform the session correctly?
If there is a class in which it is vital to maintain a correct body posture, that is the spinning. Our position on the bicycle will determine the efficiency of our pedaling and its safety. Maintaining the correct posture on the bike for 45 minutes is not an easy task: when fatigue makes a dent, we tend to relax.
Few directed activities limit us both in the movements to be carried out and the spinning. Step one: get on the bike. Step two: give pedals. End of story. And yet, we have to animate the sessions and make each one different from the others. And how we do it? I leave some ideas that may interest you to make a spinning class more lively and fun without falling into dangerous movements for our body.
These are two of the questions I receive most from the regulars at the gym and from the collective classes: what exercise is better to burn fat, spinning or body pump? And how many calories do we burn in a class? Next, I will try to solve these doubts and try to give a winner, although it is complicated because they are very different disciplines.
The indoor spinning or cycle is one of the activities most carried out by all of us since it is very complete and has an important recreational component. In addition, it is an ideal complement for cyclists and triathletes because it perfectly mimics the movement of the outdoor bicycle. Many of you, do not notice how you pedal on the bike or what muscles you are working during the session.
The collective classes of gyms are a world apart: loved to the extreme by some, belittled by others ... But we cannot deny that they always give much to talk about. For the undecided who do not know which activity will be better for you, we will review the five main benefits of the most widespread disciplines: today we start with spinning.
Surely in one of your spinning classes you have met the typical companion that seems to come directly from the Tour de France: wear a fashionable jersey, special shoes, isotonic drink, mittens (to match the jersey, of course) , tape in the hair and, if you hurry me, GPS.
The Spinning or Indoor Cycle has undergone a spectacular flood of participants in recent years: the promise of fairly rapid weight loss and lower train toning has meant that many people outside the gyms do not miss a single class. Like all sports activities, it has its pros and cons, and continues to grow rapidly and steadily.
