Oldies Spin Playlist (I call it my Time Machine playlist!)


Warm up-Good Vibrations by The Beach Boys (3:37)

Standing run to sprint in saddle-Footloose by Kenny Loggins (3:46)

Start in a Standing run with resistance on level 3 (on a scale of 1-10, 10 being your MAX resistance), when the chorus comes on, sprint in the saddle. Then come back up into standing run until the next chorus.

Jumps counts of 4-Shout by The Isley Brothers (4:27)

Jump from the saddle to standing position 2 to climbing position 3 with beats of 4 during the chorus, rest in between the “shouts” chorus.

Tempo Climb- Stayin Alive by The Bee Gees (4:45)

Start in climbing position 3 with resistance at level 3 (on a scale of 1-10), during the chorus get low in a hover position, isolating your leg muscles to do all the work. Keep your core tight and make sure youre breathing. Explain to them that the tempo part of the song your head is bouncing up and down but when you come into the hover during the chorus your upper body is still and youre using only your leg muscles and core to do the work. This is a good strengthening exercise!

 Climb in saddle- Beat it by Michael Jackson (4:19)

Start in the saddle with resistance at level 2 (on a scale of 1-10), every 30 seconds increase resistance up a level. There should be 8 total increases. When you get to level 5 come up into a standing climb.

Climb in 2nd to 3rd-Eye of the Tiger by Survivor (4:03)

3-30 second sprints- Lets Go by Neyo (3:46)
