Using Assault Air Bike during classes
 
Hello,

I'm a new Affiliate and I'm buying 2 Assault Air Bike.
How can I use it during classes for Skills or Warm-ups ?
Do you use it ?

Thanks for all

We use ours routinely by creating circuits. It really depends on class sizes and how you program, but here are some ideas:

3 minute max calorie test for a workout - with 12 people in a class it will take less then 20 minutes to get through everyone and the other four people waiting at each bike can encourage the person performing the test.

Intervals: 1:30 on / 2:30 (or another number that makes sense) so someone else is working while they rest.

As a station in a fight gone bad style workout. If your limiting equipment is 2 and your max class size is 12 you need 5 stations and a rest station (2 people at each of 6 places), make the bikes the first thing after the rest. Thsi can be done stagger start, or each group starting at one station.

As a buy in to an AMRAP or chipper. Start on a running clock, put 2 people through, whatever buy in, and then start 2 more people a minute or two later, and again with the next pair, etc.

Take your entire class and split it into 3 groups and have 3 pieces for the day. Airbike is one station, acessory work for another, strength or a mini wod for the other. Rotate through every 15 minutes.

Use it as a better sub for running instead of rowing in a workout for someone who can't run for some reason.


Just some ideas.

Thanks a lot Patrick.

A lot of ideas to work on on my programming with your experience shared ! I like to bring diversity to training and this bike bring intensity in a short period of time like no other material !

Use them much as you would use the rower. How you use them depends on the stimulus you are going for. Figure out your intended stimulus or the target goal for the programming and fit the AB parameters to fit your goal.
