Welcome to Day 12 of the Excy HIIT Challenge!
Tune in at www.excy.live or Facebook Live for all our Live Excy portable cross training workouts! We’ll keep focused on our high intensity interval training format of 30 seconds at high intensity intervals and 30 seconds at a lower intensity interval for 20 minutes.
Today’s Workout: Resistance Upper Body Cycling Bear Crawl
Today is all about controlled cranking and delivering solid power through strength based movements with calm focus. By grinding through tougher resistance levels in a squatted position, you’ll get the biggest bang for your buck in this short, but tough workout. Our slow intervals will be used for slow and effective strength training for the upper body and then we will pedal faster at an easier resistance level during our slower intervals.
The Floor Exercise Bike Schedule:
2:00 – 2:30 (Light Crank. Spin. Press. Find comfortable resistance level)
2:30 – 3:00 (Strength Train Play for 30 seconds)
3:00 – 3:30 (Recover with a brisk pedal in forward or reverse with easier resistance or slow with resistance higher for strength training)
3:30 – 4:00 (Strength Train Play for 30 seconds)
4:00 – 4:30 (Recover with a brisk pedal in forward or reverse with easier resistance or slow with resistance higher for strength training)
4:30 – 5:00 (Strength Train Play for 30 seconds)
5:00 – 20:00 Repeat the 30-second intervals until 20 minutes is up!
When doing this on your own, make sure to use the Excy Mobile Coach (set your time to 20 minutes, then set your fast and slow intervals at 30 seconds each).
