Activio Indoor Cycling 75 minutes

Today, I attended the weekly Activio indoor cycling class as usual. It lasted for 75 minutes instead of 60 minutes.
The workout contained four intervals lasting for 15 minutes each. We mainly kept the heart rate in the yellow zone with both low and high cadence throughout the intervals.

I felt great and strong and managed to peak into the red zone in the end of all intervals. At most, I peaked at 96 percent of my max heart rate.

Captains of Crush #1

Today, I received my Ironmind Captains of Crush #1 gripper bought from MM Sports.

I am not near closing it as of today, but my aim is to workout my grip 3 days a week to develop strenght.
I would by really cool to eventually be a certified #3 closer.

Spinning Activio 75 minutes

Just returned home from a Activio spinning 75 minutes workout.

Now, I am really tired and it feel like I am falling of the chair any minute =)

Activio Spinning workout 60 minutes

Today, as usual, I went to SportLife Lindholmen for a 60 minutes Activio spinning workout.
Today, there were a lack of  Activio heart rate chest belts, so I trained without a such.
Maybe it was good, since I had to listen even closer to and take note of the signals from my body and my pulse.

I performed somewhat good, not as good as last week, but I am satisfied with my results.

 

BodyCombat – 2nd visit

The BodyCombat workout today ended up quite better than the first one last week.
