I've got the Friday class again this week. I think I'm going to do a 1990s dance party :) Suggestions welcome! I will post it when I get it done.
I was a little nervous in building this playlist. Monday I was subbing for a very popular instructor. His classes are tough, and his room is always full. His taste in music is nowhere near mine, so it was a major change for the class, but they seemed happy!
This class ended up being super-tough. I wore my monitor, and burned 500 calories!
Onto the playlist!
Warmup: REM - Stand
Hill: Weezer -- Beverly Hills
Recover: Florence and the Machine -- Kiss with a Fist
Pyramid climb: Fun. -- We are Young (Perfect for a pyramid climb, the song slows down then speeds up again)
Recover/sprint: Pat Benetar -- Hit Me With Your Best Shot (I use this song a lot but it's so perfect, a one minute recovery then a 30-second sprint)
Rolling Hills: Fiona Apple -- Fast As You Can
Recover/Jumps: Flo Rida -- Club Can't Handle Me (just a super fun song)
Static climb OR Strength Drill: Bruce Springsteen -- Born to Run
Recover: Modest Mouse -- So Much Beauty in Dirt
Jumps: Matt & Kim -- Good Old Fashioned Nightmare (I've said it before, I love it love it love it love it and it's so perfect!)
Small hill: Michael Jackson -- Black or White (I always catch someone dancing when I play this hehe)
Rolling hills: Queen -- Keep Yourself Alive -- I just discovered this song and it's also perfect, I do two-tier hills, some out of the saddle, alternating with quick sprints on a flat
Cooldown: Arcade Fire -- Keep the Car Running
