Without question, music is an essential component of what makes indoor cycling so successful and fun. FTP field tests have a unique requirement and require high-energy, rhythmic tempos that help you turn the pedals in the range of the mid-80s to mid-90s rpm. We’ve got two Spotify playlists with over 200 songs—one with electronic genres and the other with rock, alternative, indie, and hip-hop tracks. There is a playlist with high-energy songs for shorter 3-minute FTP tests. Plus, we provide three full Spotify playlists for your FTP tests. We’ve got you covered!
Learn how to use music in novel ways to develop students’ pedaling skills while simultaneously disengaging them from relying on music as a crutch. The concepts are difficult to explain and are best felt and seen. Listen to the examples and find similar music in your own library to experiment with. Then see what happens when you introduce the concepts into a class setting.
