ABOUT SPIN 90

The Spin 90 cycling training program by Coach John Hughes has been developed after years of racing, studying, and training with top level athletes. There are thousands of training programs, but the Spin 90 program goes beyond just a workout or ordinary training plan.

TIPS FROM THE PROS

  

From Anne Johnson, TriFitness Training Coach:

 

Running Form Tips
Slight lean from your ankles - don't bounce, shoulders relaxed, chin in - focus on the horizon, think effort over pace going up hills, 90 steps per minute, listen to the good friends in your head.
Use the off-season to work on implementation.  An emphasis of technique running early in the season allows body to adapt.  Have a purpose and add variety to your workouts to build speed and endurance.
Tip To Run faster
Incorporate speed into your sessions.  At the end of your run, gradually accelerate to max effort over 15 seconds, jog recover for 1 minute, repeat three times.
