Hi! I have been spinning probably about 10 times so far. I actually asked you guys a few spinning form questions a few weeks ago--for those who responded-thanks so much again! It's been going great. I am really loving it.
Although I'm running into a small problem I wanted some advice on. Our instructor usually has about 3 songs during our hour class that you do "sprints". I'm finding that if I try to do sprints in any position other than position 1, my knees are locking with each rotation-which obviously makes it so I can't do the sprint quickly, which is the purpose of it.
It doesn't hurt AT ALL..... my knees feel just dandy throughout the workout and after. And they don't lock on slow songs even with high resistance. And sometimes also I can do the sprint without knees locking for about half the time-then all the sudden they lock on some random cycle.
I asked the instructor for advice... she said I have weak knees too, so sometimes I sit the sprints out if my knees are locking. So just sit out those parts....
While I, of course!, will take her advice and just sit it out, I guess I was hoping for maybe another solution? I don't want to sit out those portions as I can tell it's a great workout when I can do them, and since there is no pain I thought maybe I just had my seat too high or something....also today I did sit out those parts (by just going to position 1 and doing what I could there)--but I found that I really felt less worked out and afterword felt like I didn't get as good of a workout.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Maybe someone else experiences this as well? Thanks ahead of time! Go spinning enthusiasts! :)
