I've never taken a spinning class but they seem to be pretty popular at the Y.

Do you take them? What do you think?

It worked my ass off. Even though doing HIIT leaves you sweating your ass off also, the spinning class felt like your racing the other members. I also liked it b/c your in a room isolated from the rest of the gym and you have music blasting, lights are low and the instructer is shouting orders at you. :yell: :p
However I did try both the spinning class in the Y and a spinning class downtown where i live and the Y wasnt as good as the downtown one. If you can go to a private spinning class its much more proffesional.

I do spin... and LOVE IT :love: What I love about it is you can ride at your pace or keep up with the instructor. I love riding to music, the sweat, the burn, pushing myself, raising my heart rate. This class isn't for everyone as the seats of the bike are really uncomfortable. Where I live riding on the streets IMO is very dangerous. People have no respect for cyclists so I choose to ride in doors. I hope you enjoy it and remember to bring H2O.

I do spinning classes as well and I enjoy them. I feel like I'm getting a really good SS workout (we do interval training) and like the music.

I do it once or twice a week and use it as my SS cardio sessions.....I love it!! it is an easy, non-boring way to get in the cardio.

I think the best legs in general belong to cyclist and soccer players. But that's just my personal opinion. Anywho, I couldn't get into spinning because I couldn't get my heart rate up. My legs would burn like heck though. Try it, you might like it. Like the other person said, find what you like.

Tina

Well I've never taken a class before. It seems to be going on around the same time I can get to the gym in the morning, and everyone walking out of there seems sweaty and happy.

My opinion too! Cyclists tend to have great legs! :love:

I know spot reduction is a myth and all that, but my thighs have shrunk by several inches since I've been spinning. And my calves are looking pretty good - even if I say so myself. ;)

Maybe if you have fat legs to start with (like me) they slim down, and if you have slim legs (like you) they don't exactly get fat, but more muscular.

Once, when I was having a massage, the masseuse said I had the "sturdy quads of a cyclist". I took that as a compliment - better sturdy than fat, I say.

More muscular legs from riding a bike? What have I been doing all this time slaving away at the squat rack?

I can honeslty say my squats and lunges and deadlifts helped slim down my legs. If I gave you my measurements when I taught spin compared to now there is a difference.

I listen to Thunder he has great legs&#33;

I just had to post&#33; I love spinning&#33;&#33;&#33; I also can say that I gained inches on my thighs while spinning 2-3 times a week. . . I was also strength training, but still&#33; I never had had a problem getting my heart rate up while spinning either, just turn up the resistance( keep cranking)and stand up, lol&#33; I am looking into buying a spin bike of my very own, perhaps Schwinn. . . I&#39;m spinning around

Well, I haven&#39;t exactly conducted a scientific experiment here. :p I spin and do heavy squats and lunges, and somewhere along the way, I&#39;ve lost inches from my thighs. Was it the spinning or the weights? Who cares?

Anyway, I dispute that spinning makes your legs "fat".

I just tell my clients to think there is a quarter in there crack, suck in those abs and keep squeezing. Nothing about my personal body. Classes can be good as long as the instructor keeps it creative and fun and interesting. Some instructors ar to repetive which makes the class boring&#33;&#33;&#33; :dance:

Well I was asking what people thought of it because:

- I need to do SS Cardio

- I&#39;m hoping to become pregnant so I was thinking this would be a good class to take throughout the pregnancy.

- It&#39;s going on during the time I can get to the gym in the morning.

This quote was posted in jest, but since its being taking so seriously, hes the reasoning behind his view:

Spinning is cardio, and cardio does not build much muscle. Given that most women dont have much muscle to begin with, theyre still going to look soft and flabby when they try cutting. So if you want your legs to look soft and flabby, then keep spinning. Given the status of most spinners and aerobics instructors in general, the Poliquin said what I quoted.

For ther record, I know many people who have done spinning 2 - 3x a week and see there legs become very lean and muscular. Obviously good diet and other training is involved, but this has made a huge impact on them.

OF course, every person is different.

BlueTuna

It&#39;s rare for a girl to have lean legs - which means separation in the quads.

Yeah, dammit&#33; :uuhh: When I was cycling I was as lean as I&#39;ve ever been and I did everything I could to get "knee boobs" like all the guys had, and I couldn&#39;t do it&#33; All I ever got was a very squared off vastus lateralis. My hamstrings were much nicer than theirs, though. :shrug:

Tina
06-11-2006, 01:13 PM
Um.... Why would there be a problem if you&#39;re lifting heavy but also using spinning as SS cardio ? And when do people rely on cardio to get muscular?

Meliska
06-11-2006, 04:02 PM
I was spinning twice a week, going all out...no results&#33; I was training legs on the side but the old-school girlie way.

It really wasn&#39;t until I started lifting heavy that saddlebags and the rest of the baggage started coming off&#33;

Spinning is fun, gets your heart rate up and can be a great source of cardio but you aren&#39;t going to get lean legs by doing that alone...no matter how high your tension is&#33;

Just my 2cents for my first post&#33;:)

Depends on how lean and muscular is being defined.

This is lean - and obviously muscular.

See quad separation.

I think it also depends on the area you live in and what kind of gym you go to. I&#39;ve seen Spinners at the Y, who look average at best...But I&#39;ve seen spinners at other gyms that have amazing legs. It usually people that actually cycle on road bikes but take it inside for the winter. Mardgra- amazing wheels.

These are my legs..not sure if they are considered to be lean.* I spin 4x/week and have been since June of 2005.* I do other things of course, but Spinning is the bulk of my cardio.
You&#39;re the first person I&#39;ve seen who has decent legs and who spins. :)

The majority do not look like you.
I think it also depends on the area you live in and what kind of gym you go to. I&#39;ve seen Spinners at the Y, who look average at best...But I&#39;ve seen spinners at other gyms that have amazing legs. It usually people that actually cycle on road bikes but take it inside for the winter. Mardgra- amazing wheels. [/b][/quote]
Thanks&#33;&#33;&#33; And to think..I&#39;m from the Y&#33;&#33; :clap: LOL&#33;&#33;

No, I think its more due to the fact that most spinners don&#39;t have decent legs. :wink:

We&#39;ll just have to agree to disagree on that one. I guess "nice legs" are subjective.

I just don&#39;t get why spinning is any different than any other kind of SS cardio. If you spin once a week vs. elliptical or something is it really going to make any difference? I fail to understand how.

How long are spinning classes?

Most are an hour, but my gym has a 90 minute one. 90 minutes?&#33;?&#33;? Who does that?&#33;

And there&#39;s the problem. 60+ minute cardio sessions. Retarded.

Depends. Standard classes are 40 minutes. Specialty classes can range from 60 minutes and more.

I&#39;ve never taken a spinning class but they seem to be pretty popular at the Y.

Do you take them?
Never.

Remember guys that people train for different reasons. I would do a 90 minute session when I am training to compete in a triathlon. There are reasons for all type of training and it is specific to your goals.

Just because you are bodybuilders and don&#39;t endurance train does not mean it is something you should never do or that it is bad. There is a protocol for different types of training and I don&#39;t want people to get the wrong idea.


It is goal dependent on what you are training for.

Also , most spin classes should be 40 minutes unless they are extended for people training for something. 90 minutes for general population is way too long.

I try to keep an open mind to all types of training and ideas. I never want to become closeminded and locked into one way of thinking. Because than I am not open to learn.

A johnnyG spin class is 40 minutes including warmup and cooldown. That is the standard.
