You can get videos that take you on a ride (like someone video taped a ride) and say “Ok, we’re going up a hill now, crank up your resistance” and show you biking up a hill. Just google cycling videos or something. They probably advertise them more for using a road bike on a trainer, but they would work on a spin bike too. I’m sure they make spin DVDs too though! Smile

I have heard there are some great phone apps you can install for indoor spin rides.

you could try just looking up different routines that they would use in class for a certain amount of time.  I attend cycling classes 3x/week currently, but in a few months I may not be able to and I plan on following some of the routines that they have used in class on my own. I like the idea of being able to watch something else at the same time instead of listening to someone talk about cycling….

@BrownPlaidBook:  I adore spinning! I used to take classes, but I’ve switched to working out at home, too. Similar to my past instructors, I design my ride in advance. I download music that motivates me (generally top 40 is what I work out to, even though it’s not my preference for anything else!) and design a mountainous ride! I love standing work but I do mix it up.
