I have taken to the peloton like a fish to water. I've been on it straight for the last 40 days and I feel great. My overall goal is weight loss and better fitness but I don't seem to be moving the needle yet. I realize that in my 40's it will be far more difficult to get the same changes in but I still feel like I'm not working smarter.
So the question is this. What is a good framework to ride 6 days a week? I wake up at 5:30 every morning and randomly choose a ride that seems like fun. I also try to make sure that two rides a week are low impact. Outside of that I feel like I don't have a real plan.
Any suggestions would be awesome. I'd love to be able to wake up on a wendsday and say, find a 10 minute HIIT followed by climb and then stretch.
Sounds like you're doing great! Here's an article I saw that talks about different plans. Are you currently doing other exercises via the Peloton app, weights or outdoor activities like running and cycling?
If you're looking for structure, powerzone challenge is probably the best route to go. It's also great to be able to see your progress. For weight loss specifically, I have heard that HIIT are generally the most efficient of the various types although I would make sure not to mix in some easier days like low impact.
