4 Cycling Workout Plans to Add to Your Fitness Routine

Date: Nov 13, 2015    By: Genesis Fitness

Cycling is an awesome cardio workout, but it can get repetitive if you're not careful. Here's 4 workout plans to mix it up, keep progressing in your fitness and keep boredom at bay.

1. Time for distance – Set a timer for a certain amount of time; 20 minutes, 45 minutes, whatever length workout you want. Now challenge yourself to cover as much distance as possible in the allocated time.

Try to beat your score each subsequent workout.

2. Distance for time – This is the reverse of the previous. This time, set a certain distance, and try to cover it in as little time as possible.
Again, try to beat your score with each subsequent workout. Be careful not to go off too fast and blow yourself out!

3. Sprint intervals – This will work different energy systems, building both endurance and power. It's also great for burning fat.

Go for a certain time or distance at a moderate intensity, then go for a certain (shorter) time or distance at high intensity. For example, 3 minutes at moderate intensity, followed by a 1 minute sprint. Then drop back to a moderate intensity for 3 minutes, and so on.

4. Hill intervals – Go for a certain time or distance at a moderate intensity, then turn up the resistance or if you're on an electronic bike it will have a hill setting. Up the intensity while you 'ride up the hill', then drop it back to moderate for the 'flat ground'.
