Ok it’s a spooky seven days till Halloween so it’s time for some halloween themed songs for a spinning playlist. I love using holidays as a jumping point for themed playlists. I already have two halloween playlists on my blog from 2012 and 2013 so here is another one! Who knew there could be so much variety right? I already played my previous years playlist this week so I have something fresh for my class Friday morning! The full playlist is available on iTunes or individual songs as below. ****Be careful of the songs as a couple have *explicit* lyrics, so go for the clean version for your classes if they don’t like the occasional F bomb 😉 Tough for me to link those on iTunes as it doesn’t show which is the clean/explicit version for the links sorry. Use caution****
Warm up, easy resistance and easy speed. Fun song, and honestly the first Professor Green song I’ve listened to all the way through. Be careful which version you get, this has an S-bomb in it midway.
This one is just FUN song! Add a little resistance, say 30%, then alternate from saddle to 2nd and 3rd, repeating and adding resistance every time. Make it fun but starting a challenge. This ride has some HILLS coming. Knock out the fun now 😉
True Blood theme tune so some of your class will know it. Add resistance for a climb. I am opting to stay up at the end of the last song, adding resistance and coming into third. When the song goes quiet midway I come down in the saddle for a push through, then back up to third to finish it out.
Come down into the saddle, and turn down the resistance a little, but only a little! Stay down, in the chorus add resistance and push through the hills.
This remix starts similar to the original but then the beat comes in and you ease off the resistance and sprint! Then you’ll do sprints intervals for the whole song. Choose your timing to suit the level of your class.
Add some resistance again, maybe a total of 50-60% and then bring the class to the tempo. Alternate between saddle and 2nd doing about 1 minute in each position, or do what I do and just use the music rhythm to move ya. This version has no F-bomb 😉
Add resistance, a lot of it. Heavy climb in third. Get the class turning up the dial and pushing through the almost 6 minute climb!
Fun beat, devilish lyrics. From rock metal to techno… yeah why not? Lighten up the resistance to around 40% and pop it up between positions, moving through each position to tempo of the music.
Adding resistance to around 60% then use all three positions again. Listen to the song you’ll hear it! Pop up at the poppy beat, then techno dubstep is 3rd, slow tempo is saddle.
Saddle, lighten up the resistance, but not too much, then SPRINTS in the chorus. Get the clean no F-bomb version 😉
Climb! Add resistance. This starts slow, use the time to grab a drink, add resistance, keep spinning. I like to stay down in the saddle for the climb, see how your class goes.
Tempo! Resistance down a little for this one. This song is all over the place. Starts slow, then goes pop-tastic. When the pop begins you have a choice to come to second, then when the verse starts again come back down in the saddle. And repeat 😉
Climb! Start down to find your resistance, then come up and stay up. Give your class a break and alternate between 2nd and 3rd. It’s medium paced so get the correct resistance before coming up!
Remix time! Come down, take the resistance down, but not all the way! Maybe around 20-30% total, and spin easy. OR depending on your class go for easy sprints to finish!
Stretch. The end really!
