Sweat It Out

I put together a new playlist this week after several weeks of climbing work.  This one isn’t too focused on climbing, but a lot of intervals.  Play around with the accelerations– wether you focus on speed, strength or out of the saddle work.  Here is the Spotify link:  cycle tunes 11.15.12  Enjoy!

  • maroon 5 – one more night (3:40) : i can’t stop singing this song!  so catchy.  starting here with stretching/warm up.
  • emeli sande – wonder (3:23) : another song i love.  initial climb here, nothing crazy.  continuing warm up.
  • afro jack, eva simons (3:41) – take over control & ellie goulding – anything could happen (4:47) : standing climb with seated accelerations.  warm up for 1 min.  two rounds of 30 sec out of saddle climb, 30 sec seated push.  one minute recovery.  three rounds of 30 sec out of saddle climb, 30 sec seated push.
  • cold war kids – hang me up to dry (3:39) & savage garden – i want you (3:52) : only steady uphill climb.  three peaks.  i took the first one slowly and picked up the pace for the final two.
  • imagine dragons – it’s time (3:28) : active, flat road.
  • outatime – ain’t nobody (5:01) : lifts, in and out of the saddle.  i start with 20 sec in/out and progress down to a quick 5 sec in/out.
