Summer Endurance Ride

summer is officially here, and i love it!  this playlist is a pretty random mix of tunes, but i love focusing on sweat-inducing endurance work during the summer.  here is the spotify link: endurance ride 5.31.12

  • lecrae – walking on water (3:41) : warm up/stretch
  • benny benassi ft. gary go – control (3:29) : endurance pushes, focusing on speed – 90rpms, adding gear until you hit a 70% perceived rate of exertion (PRE).  1 min at 70%, 45 sec 80%, 1 min 70%.
  • britt nicole – amazing life (3:34) : sprints on chorus.
  • queen – another one bites the dust (3:35) : steady, in the saddle climb.  heavy peak.
  • ok go – here it goes again (3:00) : back to endurance work.  1 min 70%, 1 min 80%, 1 min 70%.
  • the ataris – boys of summer (4:18) : sprints on chorus.
  • bruno mars – runaway baby (2:28) : in and out of the saddle climb.  it is quick, but don’t skimp on intensity.
  • tom petty – running down a dream (4:23) : long, steady run.  4 min in the saddle.  increases on each minute.  class needs to get in the zone here, but don’t let them slack on speed!
  • marvin gaye – ain’t no mountain (2:26) : if the class really gave their all on the last four minutes, i use this for recovery.  if they slacked off, i would bring them out of the saddle for a climb here.
  • LMFAO – party rock anthem (4:26) : endurance pushes.  90 sec at 70%, 90 sec at 80%, 90 sec at 70%.
  • katy perry – E.T. (benny benassi radio edit) (3:21) : sprints on chorus.  last set.  three, heavy 30 sec sprints.  i took these out of the saddle to give the bottom a break, but if you used the earlier recovery for out of saddle climb, it may not be necessary here.
  • the black keys – lonely boy (3:13) : final climb, quick in the saddle.
  • the lumineers – stubborn love (4:39) : cool down, stretch.
