New Spinning workout DVD


Today was a kind of day to hop on the trainer and get a good workout. The day began with rain and temperatures dropped to the point of turning the rain into snow.

I recently received in the mail my new off-season workout DVD: SPINerVALS Ultra Conditioning 2.0 Ultra CORE-Strength Builder. And on this wonderful gray, wet, and snowy day I did the workout.

The workout consists 60% of the time on the bike doing various one leg drills and high cadence drills. The other 40% is core workouts on the stability ball. The core workouts were mixed in between sets of the different drill exercises, which help break the monotony of just spinning for an hour. My legs felt like they got a workout along with my back and abdominal muscles. I'll be back to do that workout again during the winter months.

Here is some information on the DVD.

Something like that would be good to have in the winter. Keep me posted on how effective you think it is.

I was just thinking of ordering that one... I like that idea of breaking up the monotony of spinning as well.

I could send you some of the things I did last summer. No DVD necessary.

Sounds like it would be better than just spinning. Great for snow times.

Never tried Spinervals, but heard good things about them. If the haze gets worse next year I may have to start looking at these...
