|Workout of the Week...Bike
Each week I will feature a swim, bike, run, strength, core, or flexibility workout.
I love hills. Hill repeats KICK MY ASS but I still love them.
Here is my fave HILL REPEAT workout...
Find a hill 1/2-1 mile long that is moderately steep. I kept this vague since we all live in different areas with a variety of landscapes.
Pick a number of repeats you want to do. I like to start with 3-6 and work up over time to 12-21.
Repeat these 3 as many times as you have time...
1. easiest gear, seated, spinning, easy intensity
2. harder gear, sit as long as you can and then stand to finish, moderate intensity
3. harder gear, standing the entire climb, hard intensity
And then relax and easy downhill
