Welcome to the Indoor Cycling Association
This is a theme ride based on Latin pop songs that can be used any time of the year but will be particularly popular from September 15 to October 15 to “celebrar” the contributions of the multitude of talented Latino musicians for Hispanic Heritage month. The rhythm of the “música” will keep riders “bailando” even as they leave class. The overall objective is “divertirse,” or to have fun, with this strength interval profile of three long fiesta sets with progressively increasing intensity.
National Hispanic Heritage Month is the perfect time for indoor cycling instructors to infuse a burst of vibrant energy into their classes. One way to honor this rich cultural celebration is by leading a Latin-themed profile with the pulsating rhythms of Latin music.
I’ve had numerous questions over the years about what to do when riders put on too much resistance that slows their cadence down too much. This is a very important issue because heavy resistance has a high risk of injury. Students may do it with the misguided belief it will “strengthen” the legs (like leg presses). It also usually has a high ego component to it. How do you tell them to pedal faster? . . .
