Pace and push - or speed and resistance management - are the main focuses of RPM 43. You'll be introduced to the concept of base resistance versus working resistance and in Tracks 2, 4 and 6 you'll be managing your resistance to help you stay on the beat for longer. This, combined with some awesome new music, will really get that heart racing!
You're eased into the workout with Ne-Yo's Closer. Take the time to set up the correct cycling position and become familiar with the base and working resistance. Your heart rate will lift in Track 2 with the two one-minute intervals. Katy Perry's Hot n Cold will have you singing along before the hard work hits in Track 3. The Killers' Spaceman will help you through the three short, steep phases which are followed by one power effort. Snow Patrol's Take Back The City is a great track to catch your breath to during the cruisy climbs but get ready to push yourself in the sprints. The Prodigy are in the house driving Track 5 - a big song, big sound and intense interval training track. There are four efforts on the flats in the hardest gear which will have you gasping for air. You get the chance to flush your legs and recover in Track 6 - but don't get too comfortable as there are two big, one-minute speed work-efforts. The key to surviving Track 7 is to manage your intensity wisely. Go big but pace yourself as you'll need to put in a huge effort to make it to the top. Two short 30-second efforts are followed by two 90-second strength endurance phases. Your hard work is rewarded with a ride home to Broken Strings - James Morrison's beautiful hit featuring Nelly Furtado.
