My birthday’s coming up… I have the birthday blues this year. Spinning makes me happy though Enjoy this playlist, I totally did.
Pretty Lights, Someday is Everday (6:42) – Warm up, safety, introduction, bla bla bla. (but don’t skip the bla bla bla)
Joe Budden, Pump it Up (4:09) – Pump up the resistance here every so often, get the legs warm. All positions.
Britney Spears, I Wanna Go (3:30) – Pick up the pace during the chorus, from Position 2 and 3.
Bubba Sparxxx (Miss New Booty Clean) (3:20) – Still gradually increasing resistance for this song. Some rolling hills for the first 10-15 minutes of class I guess!
Daft Punk, Revolution 909 (Radio Edit) (3:46) – Ahh, the first straight Daft Punk song I’ve used so far I think. Usually I mix them with another song. This song I actually took the time to discuss bike setup because I know I was never personally taught the proper way until my certification course. I thought it would be a good time to discuss it since everyones in the class, they can take it all in even if they don’t think they need to adjust their bike, and then maybe give it a shot the next class if they want. Or of course, I had a few get off the bike then and there to correct themselves. I want to try to do this once a month just so everyone’s refreshed on proper spin technique.
Smashing Pumpkins (Tonight, Tonight) (4:21) – Moderate to heavy sprints during the chorus of this song.
Justin Timberlake, My Love (Casino Inc. Amazing Disco Remix) (3:19) – Gave it a minute or two for recovery, and then we began jumps at the student’s own pace.
Black Eyed Peas, Rock That Body (Skrillex Remix) (5:17) – Rolling hills and we threw the resistance up for the dubby parts, switching between position 2 and 3 throughout the song.
Florence and the Machine, Rabbit Heart (Raise it Up) (3:39) – Beautiful song. Moderate sprints during the chorus of the song in the saddle.
Deadmau5, Animal Rights (Ft. Wolfgang Gartner) (6:15) – Recovered for a minute or so and then we hung out in the different positions and did some jumps for the last 3.5 minutes of the song, at the students own discretion.
Gorillaz, Daft Punk v. Gorillaz – Daft Gorillaz (5:14) – Light and fast for this song. Gradual increase to moderate and we picked up the pace a few times.
Daft Punk, Dead or Alive? (Britney Spears v. Dead or Alive v. Daft Punk) (3:17) – Nice little Brit remix. Jumps!
Nicki Minaj, Super Bass (Clean Version) (4:05) – Last fast song, and we did sprints during the super bass chorus.
TV On the Radio (Will Do) (3:44) – Cool down. Ahhhhhh, bliss. Don’t you just love how great you feel after a spin class?
I’m outside on my patio, and a bunny has been hanging out with me the whole time I’ve been writing this entry. Straight lampin’.
