Indoor Cycle Routine of the Week #004: Lil Boo Theme

Spin Routine of the Week #004: Lil Boo Theme

This is my “Lil Boo Theme” 45-minute indoor cycle routine and playlist, centered around my current obsession: “Lil Boo Thang,” by Paul Russell. All of the songs have Boo or Boo- in them. The best part? You can make it Halloween themed…or not. 🙂

P.S. Welcome to Spin Routine of the Week, a free, weekly newsletter by groupxfitnesstips.com. Every Tuesday, you’ll get a class-tested, instructor-approved indoor cycle routine delivered to your inbox to help you find inspiration as you plan your next class. Don’t miss a week! Sign up here.

Reminder: I like to teach my indoor cycle classes in a series of exercises that we do twice or three times through. I pick a couple exercises to make up the series, and we stick to it throughout the class. That way, participants know what to expect, so they can go big when they’re supposed to and not hold back for fear of another interval around the corner.

The Series

The indoor cycle series includes the following four exercises, done three times through.

  1. Song 1: A march at moderate intensity. At the chorus, increase pace and resistance to find hard intensity, then come back to that moderate pace.
  2. Song 2: Jumps, alternating in and out of the saddle at the same pace and resistance. I like to cue jumps at differing intervals to keep it interesting. (e.g. “Do 4 counts in/out of the saddle four times, then 8 counts in/out of the saddle two times, etc.)
  3. Song 3: A march at hard intensity (which will require heavy resistance). At the chorus, decrease the resistance but keep the pace to find moderate / easy intensity.
  4. Song 4: Breathless sprints! You choose the intervals.
