Spinning at the USC
After a 30km bike ride and climbing 3 first category mountain passes, the class ends with a mass sprint. Who has the strongest legs, the highest explosive accelerating power and the stamina to handle a long sprint?
Spinning at the USC is more fun now than ever before! Guided by uplifting music you will cycle your way to an excellent fitness. Starting slowly; then picking up speed towards the final sprint, and all this while under the expert guidance of a team of very enthusiastic and motivating instructors.
Certain registration rules apply to our group classes and fitness training, which can be found on this page. Read them carefully.
FROM COUCH POTATO TO GO-GETTER!
Although cycling and spinning are endurance sports, explosive strength and strength endurance are of great importance if you want to improve. On short, steep inclinations it can be a choice between ‘keep cycling or getting off’. Whether or not you can stay on your bike is dependent on your explosive strength. As well as this, your strength training mainly needs to focus on improving the maximum endurance capacity - strength that can often be developed and kept up for long periods of time with little resistance or weight.
FITNESS SCHEDULE TO FIT
We would advise specialised strength exercises to increase the strength in the legs, as well as taking part in the spinning classes. Because cycling is demanding on the back and core stability, it is important not to forget these muscle groups. Ask our fitness instructors for a workout schedule to fit your needs.
