100 thoughts on “45 Minute Cycle Training Workout – Sprint Training

  1. Paul is my favorite ! I always feel like im going to pass out ..haha love it , only when you push yourself you get better! Thank you GCN **PLEASE MORE VIDEOS**

  2. Great course. Easy to follow even if my english is very mediocre. Thank you so much Coach. I will be back incha Allah.

  3. Loved all the GCN workouts apart from this one. There’s so much conflicting data. What the guy is instructing you is completely incongruous to the effort level barometer and text. The profile doesn’t make much sense either.

    I really like the clear and transparent outlining of the session content from other instructors but the only flavor you get of what is to come is from the profile. It would have been nice if the fella talked us through it before hand.

    Other bug bears are the ticks he has. ‘Eh?’ Every two minutes. And alluding to it still being the warm up frequently and up until well over half way through the work out.

    Am addicted to the output of this channel but thought this was really sloppily done.

  4. Kinda didn’t like that we were sitting most of the time, and not too great music… overall doable and thanks for the class ( I still left a likes and subscribed )👍🏼

  5. Paul ?
    Is this the guy ?
    So, where is Paul ? Or better, why the 2 videos with Paul were excluded ?
    Paul, come back…

  6. @Global Cycling Network Hi why did you remove the HIIT 40minute cycle training-hill intervals? it was my favorite and I always made it please bring him back

  7. Great video, great session. Shame about getting 8 sets of Ads during it including 3 non-skippable. F*ck me that's a buzz-kill.

  8. My gym got new spin bikes and bought one of their old ones for $100. Love using it with these cycling vids. I still prefer riding outdoors, but is a great alternative when winter gets too cold.

  9. can't believe i finished this 45 min exercise on my 4th day. the first 3 days i exercise for only 20 mins. this is so hard but i feel sooo great after the workout. please keep on posting more 45min workout

  10. What kind of effort scale is this? On my garmin pulse watch i have zone z1 through z5, the scale in the video is 1-10?

  11. Wow. My first workout with you and i feel wonderful. I just subscribed and plan on joining you at least 3x a week. Thank you

  12. Why did you remove the other sprint video by paul? Believe it was 40 min session. It was the best put it back up

  13. The girl in white in the front row is the symbol of spinning, always smiling and shining … (not like the second girl from the left, for 45 minutes always sad and sulky). I would like to have her contact …. 😉

  14. If you do this workout, pay no attention to any info on the screen except rpm levels, and only as a guide. Do only what the instructor says, because his instructions and the progress/stats don’t match up. It’s a killer session! Even the spring chickens were looking like they regretted signing up. Respect to the lady at back left… 😎👌

  15. I'm already doing a HIIT/Tabata routine a couple days a week, but looking to supplement with a good cardio on those off days. Is this good or too intense? Looking to stay conditioned for hockey thru the summer.

  16. Oh GCN! – I used to love this Chanel, however sadly, the commercial demons have taken over. Advertisements during the middle of an effort of a SPIN class??????!!!
    Sooo disappointed
    Don’t mind you making a return on your effort. Please please consider before and after the workout. Surely our eyeballs need a rest from commercial interests for at least 45 mins.

  17. Thanks so much for making my home cycle sessions amazing. I watch all of your videos and I am a huge fan. Much love and keep on giving us awesome videos!!!!

  18. Its a great day for a GCN, Paul Ryman spin workout. Rain is outside. Sweat is inside. Great workout guys! 👊🏾💥😊

  19. Awesome, I love it! After a long time, I returned to my spinning classes. I ended up buying my own spinning bike and started to do your exercises. I started with the 20-minute ones and today I was able to finish this 45-minute training. Thank you for these awesome videos!

  20. First time doing a virtual spin class. Workout was good, more of a focus on form and speed rather than butts, butts, butts!

    However. I'm pretty disappointed that there lacks diversity in the cyclers? Why do they look all manicured, blonde, and Caucasian? You should really consider fixing this.

  21. Где худеющие толстяки? Нафига эти дрыщи педали крутят?

  22. What happened to the interval session that had like 20 10 second on/off sprints? That session was amazing for cross.

  23. There’s no one can reach 100rpm during 15-20mins in this video. When you try to reach 100rpm on position3 and slow down on position 2. It could hurt your knee!

  24. I miss the gym today but I did this today on my own bike at home and follow this video afterwards my legs was hurting and my shirt was soak in sweat. If anyone say these YouTube videos isn't effective they are wrong

  25. I am sure this trainer came skiing with me and Chris 🤔

    Then my brother Willis turned up to meet my mother Chris !!!!

  26. Thanks for the video … I'm using it in my personak fitness room and helps me a lot … also the smiling team keep me motivated 👍

  27. Makes me so angry when mental men abuse you by slipping a Micky Finn in your fish and chips and you are drinking soft drinks and fall asleep in 20 minutes then you can’t wake up for hours and can’t sustain an aerobics class the next day because of respiratory issues and oesophagus burnout due to too much bicarbonate of soda in the batter and mushy peas!! All because they have some weird ideas that you might be over training or have bulimia or anorexia because you were a size 8 or age 13 clothes! I wish they would leave me alone and pick on others that can’t fit in a size 6 or buy any adult clothing! I bet they get complete respect! Life is so unfair at times!

  28. The chemical makeup of this class is SOOO weird. I mean just who are these people? Its like the lady in the background is their juvenile detention officer or something and these are all delinquents on the Juvy-Cycle-Squad? 😉
