The Calorie-Blasting Cycling Workout
Get Your Heart PumpingWe love cycling because...
- It's boredom-proof! Cycling gets you out of the steamy Spinning room and lets you enjoy some scenery, sun, and speed.
- It incinerates calories -- more than 800 an hour -- while sculpting a strong butt and legs, all with zero impact, so it's friendly on your joints.
- It's adaptable! You can ride solo, with a buddy, or with the whole family, plus work out for an hour or the entire day.
Don't just coast -- make your next ride a fitness experience with these strength- and stamina-building workouts designed by Lance Leener, a cycling and triathlon coach at TriLife in New York City. Try them first indoors to get a feel for the routine, then take them outside. Use your gears to control intensity, based on your rate of perceived exertion (RPE), or how difficult the exercise feels on a scale of 1 to 10.
