Spin Workout - Amaterasu


If you happen to be a member of the Comcast Fitness Center, get out of bed early on Wednesday mornings and come to my spin class. We start at 7a sharp. Here's a recent workout (three circuits of a spint/climb/recovery):

Intro/Warmup: Red Sun by Anoushka Shankar
Sprint #1: Elevation (Influx remix) by U2
Climb #1: Give It 2 Me (Oakenfold edit) by Madonna

Sprint #2a: O Saya by AR Rahman & MIA
Sprint #2b: Voodoo Child by Moby
Climb #2a: Starry Eyed Surprise by Paul Oakenfold
Climb #2b: Diesel Power by The Prodigy

Sprint #3: Men's Needs by The Cribs
Climb #3a: Halfway Home by TV On the Radio
Climb #3b: How High by Tricky
Recovery & Cool down: Love Rescue Me by U2

Video playing in background: Stage 13 of the 2003 TdF (the one where Lance took a tumble and went on to win the stage.)

45 minutes of spinning goodness. Let me know if you have music suggestions for future classes. High bpm tunes are best, for obvious reasons.

Faster, faster! Up a half turn! Out of the saddle!

See you Wednesday morning.

Spinning is fun, but nothing beats the bike.

Do you want to come do the Seagull Century this fall?

I have to say I'm disappointed that you didn't link your song selection to where you found them. I couldn't find a few BUT they led to other things which was cool. Won't be spinning to these, the ladies @ the YMCA like their christian ROCK! These will be running tunes. Looking forward to the next list. MNJ
