I woke up feeling very rough this morning so I really didn’t have the energy to take part in my two classes so I decided to teach them off the bike.
I came up with a bit of an interactive session so that the participants didn’t get bored with me not on the bike. The session I came up with was:
I made up three sets of cards:
Set 1: Bike Positions – Seated Climb, Seated Sprint, Standing Climb, Standing Sprint, Hover, Jumps
Set 2: Number of Sets – 2, 3, 4, 5, My Choice!
Set 3: Time to work for – 30, 45, 50, 60, My Choice!
The way it worked was I got the people taking part to take it in turns to select a card from each pile (face down so they can’t see them). I would then write that workout on a whiteboard at the front and then take them through it and just repeat the process. I would choose the rest that they get between sets depending on what they were doing, for example if there was 4 sets of sprints then they would get longer rest than a couple sets of hill climbs.
It was quite simple but very effective as the members found it fun as they didn’t know what was coming and it saved me having to think of a new session. The great thing about this session is that there will never be two the same!
Give it a try and let me know how you get on!
