My Cycle Workout
"100% for 60 secs...80% for 15 secs...half turn up...full turn down...7 out of 10..."
The place that I go to offers a number of different group fitness classes. Aside from Zumba, they also offer Bootcamp, Barbell Body, Bodyshaper, Yoga, Pilates, Low Impact Aerobics, Tai-chi, Strengthen and Stretch, Body Bosu, and Cycle. Yesterday, I tried Cycle. Since I was a beginner, our instructor had to adjust the height of my seat and the resistance of my bike. While we were doing the up and down routine called Position 3, where you stand up and sit down repeatedly, my left foot slipped out of the pedal! I almost fell! Oh my... I honestly thought I'd get injured. I suppose the instructor saw what transpired. She apparently had to adjust the straps on both of my pedals and made sure they're tight enough. "I don't want you to get hurt." So nice of her. That's what she said while doing my straps. After that, everything went well. Music was motivating. You get to pedal along with it. I expected my legs to be sore the following day, and they are right now. But, it's a good sore. It was an intense workout, but I did enjoy it. :)
The next class I would want to try is...Bootcamp! Looks fun and challenging to me! :)
