Spinning

#4
I had no idea what spinning was so looked it up and this is what I found. There was awhole lot more but this is it briefly. I am sure I am probably the only person on here who doesn't have a clue but just in case, here goes.........
  • Spinning classes are done in a fitness studio, with various light and music settings to create an energized atmosphere.
  • Instructors guide participants through workout phases. Warm-up, steady uptempo cadences, sprints, climbs, cool-downs, etc.
  • You control resistance on your bike to make the pedaling as easy or difficult as you choose. Constant adjustment is normal.
  • All you'll need is workout clothes, a towel (to wipe your face) and a water bottle.
  • Spinning bikes have toe clips so you can wear tennis shoes. But many pedals also work with Shimano-style SPD cleats.

This makes it sound all nice, easy and relaxed - any class I've seen is far from it! It seems to omit the 'the instructor will scream at you to pedal at speeds unknown to man until you feel ready to either pass out or vomit (either/both may occur in some instances)'!!

LMAO :rotflmao:

I gave up on spinning in the end as as others have said, my ass hurt SO much! During in the session as well as after, which meant I couldn't do all the 'moves' the instructor wanted me to do, and a lady instructor once kept coming over and turning the thing up on my bike and i couldn't do it :( So much for at your own pace lol!!

Hi All

I spin twice a week and have done for the last 3 months!
If your ass is hurting then your bike isn't set correctly!!!!
Also, it does seem absolutely impossible at first...but honestly give it about 4 weeks and you will really get the hang of it!
Don't give up after a couple of weeks, i promise it gets easier and it is fantastic exercise you feel great afterwards!!!

Lol maybe when I've lost a few stones I'll try again. It wasn't that I couldn't pedal to the pace that bit I'm fine with it just feels like a rocket has hit my bum!!!

Actually reading the rest of the report it did go on to warn of this.
