Monday: The Infamous Airdyne
“They’re lean mean and full of pain…”
Over the past couple of months you’ve probably noticed our newest set of machines near the GHDs. They’re lean mean and full of pain and they’re known as Airdynes or “Dyne” for short. The intensity (or resistance) of the Dyne is a little different than anything else. This is actually because the Dyne’s intensity is dependent upon the person. In other words the faster that you go on Dyne the more resistance you will receive. Sounds fun right? Sure does 🙂
Next for those of us that are rehabbing an injury the airdyne is a great tool to get in some short to medium endurance training. It’s easy on our joints so just about anyone can hop on the Airdyne and get in some nasty cardiovascular training. Plus we can see our time wattage meters calories and much more. The Dyne keeps track of a whole bunch of cool stuff for us while we’re HAM-ing out some work.
To give you a little preview of what the Dyne is like click on the video below. You will see an athlete doing a Tabata (:20 work :10 rest x 8 rounds) interval on the Dyne. Pay attention to the way he moves the Dyne with his body. He pushes and pulls the arm pedals while he pushes the foot pedals forward and down. Even though it doesn’t look too bad I challenge you to try it. Coach Josh and myself tried the same workout and it was…challenging to say the least.
Team High Voltage absolutely crushed it at yesterday’s practice. We’re putting together some sweet media to show everyone how it went. We’ll be releasing that shortly so stay tuned!
