During winter times, it often is less pleasant to cycle outside. To keep up your fitness, Klein Verzet organizes different types of training thourgout the week. The winter season is from the middle of October to the middle of March.

Monday 19.30-20.30: Strength and Condition training

An outside training on the UTrack, where we train our strength and condition under guidance of Robert-Jan den Haan. He says: “During this training we train our fitness in combination with strength and core, You can expect is a bootcamp type of training, in which we will firstly be doing some jumping and sprinting exercises, after which we do a circuit with multiple exercises. The training is focused on keeping busy, but also can be seen as a good supplementary training next to the spinning trainings in which the core and strength is used.

For this training, you need sport clothes and shoes, you do not need cycling clothes and no cycling shoes for sure! Be aware that this training is outside and that it can be cold and/or wet, so dress appropriately. A bidon to have something to drink is recommended, but not needed.

Wednesday 19:00-20:30: Core stability and Spinning

A inside training in hall 6 of the University Sportcentre led by one of our own student trainers.

In the first half an hour (19:00-19:30) of this training, a circuit training is done where we train our core stability by doing different core exercises. The second part of the training is a spinning lesson, in which different types of training elements are done, such as sprints, climbing seated or standing and (short) time trials, of course with a good warming up and cooling down. All done with some nice music.

You need cycling/sporting clothes, a towel, a bottle with something to drink and sport- or cycling shoes with SPD pedals. (BE CAUTIOUS: this are not SPD-SL pedals for road bikes, but the pedals often used with mountain bikes. Do you not have shoes for SPD pedals, don’t worry, “normal” sport shoes (like running shoes) also work fine!)

Thursday 21:00-22:00: Spinning

An inside training in hall 6 of the University Sportcentre under guidance of Robert-Jan den Haan.

This training only consists of an hour of spinning. The training is mainly focused as buildup for the new (road) season. The first half of the winter season, the training is focused on the build up of strength by doing strength blocks, which increase in length and number throughout the winter season. The second part of the season is focused on sprinting, where the build up strength in used.
