The Name Game

Yesterday, I got off my lazy ass and went to Rob's 3 hour spin class. This was my first time back at spinning, always smart to jump in to an endurance class after a long absence. The music always has a theme. This time it was Names- so Bad, Bad, Leroy Brown, In the Name of Love, Mambo Number 5, etc.

I also learned how to play "Screw Your Buddy" which kept me entertained while I bruised my booty beyond repair.

Screw Your Buddy:
The first person chooses a torture the class will endure for a set time period, like a minute.
The person next to them has to work harder than the rest of class, and gets to pick two other people to share in the misery.
Next round person two picks the torture and their two buddies to share the pain.
And so on and so forth.

If you chose someone to feel the burn, chances are you'll be their buddy next time.
If you chose a torture the class especially hates, you'll be everyone's buddy.

Torture options:
Seated climb
Standing climb
Freezes: low resistance while standing where you try to maintain a perfect circle
Jumps: Stand up, sit down, stand up, sit down, sort of like mass on wheels.

I got home, took a shower, and ate an entire calzone.
