Bike Ideas Besides Generic 30/30 or Tabata

Postby jch5577 » Thu Mar 01, 2012 10:52 am

I am looking for some fun and 20-30 bike workouts that I can do on Tuesday/Thursday for my "off" day from running. Any ideas?

With bikes, rowers and some other cardio machines - i like using it for interval training, starting with a 30/30 work/rest ratio.

The good thing about the machines is you can monitor the intensity. So each week i will up the work time slightly and lower the rest time, whilst maintaing the intensity of last week, which you can measure accurately with the machines.

When you get bored of working in that direction for a while. Go back to the 30/30 or whatever you started with and see how much you can increase the intensity. That's how i like using the cardio machines anyway.

You can do a ton of great stuff on the bike. As mentioned the 30s hard 30s easy is great, I also like to do 1min hard, 1min easy, 2min hard 2min easy then start again and continue for 20 to 30 min.

^ This one is an all time favourite of mine. I do it on the rower at least once a week.
This workout never fails to humble me.
Give it a try.
