  1. hi! i have a doubt… the intensity in the side of the video is the bore scale? how i know how much is 5 or 8?? Thanks for the videos!

  2. I do 3 times a week is my complement for my training of trial running,I am montain runner and the spininng give me strong and condition,!!!hello from Puerto Rico!!!!

  3. Another great spinning workout! First time trying it this morning, and I can feel it!… The girl 3rd from the right always looks so wiped out in the videos 🙂

  4. Started riding with this group last week in lieu of my regular morning classes. You guys are intense and amazing. My body was shaking after completing a 35 min class this morning. AWESOME Feeling. Thanks!!!

  5. Just started following your site. Thank you for making these videos available. Great spin workout at home on days when I don't make the scheduled classes at the gym. So far this instructor is just as good, if not better than the ones at the gym! Keep the videos coming!

  6. Been doing Paul cycling work out and won't stop it's amazing what you get out of it, the intensity, motivation and energy you build it's incredible. Will recommend to any one .

  7. Hi everyone, great videos. Question: I typically have stiff knees from years of running and sports. When using an indoor cycle bike is it better to fully extend the legs when paddling? Thanks….

  8. Anyone know more videos of this kind maybe? I did the same training in fitness but i don't have time to go there every day and would like to train at home with same videos like this.

  9. Hi why did you remove the HIIT 45 minute cycle training it was my favorite and I always made it please bring him back

  10. @Global Cycling Network Hi why did you remove the HIIT 40minute cycle training-hill intervals? it was my favorite and I always made it please bring him back

  11. Anybody got any vo2 max before and after numbers from doing this class over a decent time period (I have 3 months before Everest base camp)?

  12. Bloody Hell!! What’s with all these commercial interruptions. Can’t you just watch them all up front. Nothing like breaking up the flow of a work out like a commercial. Rubbish.

  13. Would have been awesome except for the TWO mid-video ads, with the first one hitting right at the peak of the first interval set. Super disappointing – makes me feel like they care more about making money than giving an effective workout. I’ll happily watch an ad to start, I realize I’m getting this for free, but killing the flow twice in the middle is pretty awful

  14. Loved this session, but didn’t like the ads in the middle. I don’t mind them during the beginning or even warmup/cool down, but not during an effort.

  15. My second favorite GCN workout vid. The first one is no longer accessible, boohoo! For some reason it’s now on “private” setting. Both workouts are with Paul, he’s awesome, so motivating and the backing music to his sessions is really energising.Please collaborate with him again to produce new trainer sessions. #bringbackpaulryman #moreresistance

  16. I love the intense GCN workouts! Paul you keep me motivated and inspire me to challenge myself each time. I've been training with your videos for 3 years and counting! Thank you.

  17. Damn – do these people just post their spin classes or is this a one off, and then you subscribe to a monthly sub? Ta

  18. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Did you miss my regular commenting? Haha. I took a hiatus from the channel. Great-but tough-workout to come back to. Thanks to GCN and Paul Ryman for this.

  19. From Ohio USA, GREAT WORKOUT thanks for the videos. I like all of them, you make us feel like we are in the same room.

  20. How bout over a hundred cadence for 58 minutes, in the wind and small hills also 5 corners. In a 84 inch gear 25 miles.
