Power 381

Inspiration: MORE POWER HOUR. Several interval stretches in this HIGH ENERGY Ride…surges, sprints, climbing attacks and high-resistance runs. With some jumps, steep steady climbs and quick, flat runs, this mix should satisfy all riders. For those with access to power/watts measures on your bike (like the Keiser M3 cycles we have at many GR YMCA studios), this profile will challenge you to hit new peaks in your power training!
And for the music…a mix of new releases and artist with a few classics added for a broader appeal. I finished this mix less than 24 hours ago and we rode this AM…what a great start to the day.

This is where I started my Sunday…

For next month (all month long), I’m planning on a ROCK music focus (new/current, alternative and classic rock) for ROCKTOBER RIDES. Please comment with some of your favorite rock tracks / artists so I can put some new Rock-themed rides for the next 4 weeks.

  1. Hi Steve ! I am fairly new to following you and I can’t thank you enough for sharing all your hard work with us ! I have been able to discover alot of great music for my classes I wouldn’t even have known about! Since I am new to you I am just wondering what your “figure eights” are ? Could you explain a bit ? Again thank you so much your stuff is AWESOME ! Dawn from Albany, NY


    1. Thanks Dawn!
      About Figure Eights…some might call them tap backs…but not exactly. They involve resistance for a hill, standing, hands in position three and moving forward and back and side to side with the beat of music. Movement simulates the shape of 8. I think there’s a demo video on YouTube too, so that may be more helpful. Take care and have an awesome week.
