Hi, I do road biking, so it’s not exactly the same but…

like with any cardio, you really get the most bang for your buck with intervals. If I was doing a 30-45 minute session id do 5-10 min warm up, at least 20 minutes of high intensity interval training and cool down. 

i would also play around with resistence. Hill climbing is what makes your thighs tight and booty pop 🙂

last year I actually gained a little weight from cycling because it really made me much hungrier. But once i really concentrated on fueling with healthier stuff I haven’t had that problem. 

it makes your legs look fantastic btw 🙂 good luck!

I use the bike at the gym a lot because I have big boobs and foot pain. The bike doesn’t aggravate those issues. When I’m there to work out I use the hill training program. It’s a decent cardio workout but then when I start riding my real bike outside and I hit those killer hills I realize the exercise bike is not the same no matter what setting you put it on!

When I have a lot of reading to do for school I just pedal away at the same medium resistance. Then I don’t feel guilty for spending time working out when I have so much work to get done, but I also don’t feel guilty for sitting around on my butt. I think in the end it evens out because I’ll spend twice as much time exercising than when I’m not reading and focusing on a higher intensity.

I attend spin classes at the gym about 3-4 times per week.  The classes are 60 minutes and we are constantly changing the resistance and speed.  I went even more frequently the two months before my wedding in October and lost 20 lbs in those two months, but I was also tracking calories.

jpbee: Spin class is SO fun! The music is so energetic, and really, everyone is just doing their own thing whether they’re beginner or advanced. It’s a really good workout!
