Hello All,
I was hoping if anyone had an idea of a good workout schedule to get back in shape. I just purchased a peloton bike and I am finding some difficult trying to create a workout schedule. Some classes are definitely more taxing than others. I am find with the low internal/beginner courses, but the other courses are leaving me exhausted trying to keep up with the cadence and resistance. If you have any recommendations, I would great appreciate it.

Hi J.B.

You're on the right track starting with the beginner classes and maybe advanced beginner. Low impact rides are also a good option.

A few suggestions:
-start with shorter workouts and get longer over time
-MODIFY: you hear the instructors say this regularly. If you can't keep up, try keeping up with cadence or resistance but not both and try alternating. Also, if the instructor says to stand and you're pushing too hard, stay seated.
-make sure your bike is adjusted well - seat, handlebar height, etc.
-do at least a 5 minute cool down ride at the end and stretch after each ride

It'll feel better soon if you're consistent and don't overdo it:)

Also, if you find you're sore or exhausted, work out every other day and then increase when you're ready. The non-bike work outs like stretching and yoga can be a good change of pace too.
