We’ve got a way to get that body Spring Break ready! SoulCycle Instructor Chris Chandler stopped by the studio to teach us a few cycling moves. First, he demonstrated a push up. By placing both hands on the middle handlebars and bending the elbows to “push off,” the upper body gets engaged in this workout. Naturally, he had to show us the tap back, a SoulCycle signature move. To tap it back, riders shift their weight backwards while pedaling to mimic a small abdominal crunch. This exercise targets lower abs to help achieve a flat stomach. Keeping abdominal muscles tight, pulling the hips back over the seat and maintaining a light grip will help riders get the most out of their workout.
