The Assault bike should be a part of your training for several reasons.
Not just that it burn a lot of calories, but it can also be used as a useful recovery tool and is helpful when injured. It allows area of the injury to move and provide blood flow.
The bike is also really beneficial for working on your endurance and conditioning. Using the assault bike at high intensity can also boost your mindset as it teaches you how to push yourself through tough workouts when the pain gets real. To make it a little bit harder and even more fun on the bike you can always play with various rest intervals and different calories amounts.
Try adding these WODs into your training:
- 15 cals on the bike
- 1 unbroken round of DT
Death by 2 Calories:
- 2 calories the 1st minute.
- 4 calories the 2nd minute
- 6 calories the 3rd minute.
Carry on until you fail to achieve the required calories in the prescribed minute.
2 calories the 1st minute. 4 calories the 2nd minute. 6 calories the 3rd minute. Etc, etc, etc…until you fail to achieve the required calories in the prescribed minute. I completed 18 calories on each. I hit the @assaultairbike first, rested 5 minutes and then repeated the experience on the @concept2inc rower. I bet I would CRUSH @bicepslikebriggs on this workout. #Nope ?? #CrossFit #CrossFitLinchpin #RogueFitness #BTWB

This workout couldn’t be simpler. It’s just an innocent little couplet. There is not a barbell in sight. People on social media like to tag their friends on a workout like this and call it a “warm-up”, or maybe a nice little “finisher”. However, for me….nothing else was needed. I’m not trying to make it to the Games. I’m just trying to make it to tomorrow. (15 Cals per round on an airdyne) #RealLife #CrossFit #CrossFitLinchpin #RogueFitness #BTWB
