My preferred excercise is, of course, riding my bikes. During the colder NY months I have taken to going to the gym a few times each week to try to stay in shape. I tried a spinning class once and loved it!
Got a great workout and was soaking wet by the end. But afterwards my knee felt "loose"
( I have totally torn medial meniscus in both knees - surgeons are drooling, but they only hurt sometimes and cycling is mostly fine with them ) and took over a week to feel right again. I suspect it was the exceptionally high cadence the class seems to push for that caused this feeling. I keep telling myself that I should try it again, and just keep my personal cadence below 100 rpm, but I fear the music and prodding of the class leader will keep me from maintaining this reasonable cadence and I will once again do some damage to my knees. There are no instruments in the class to help monitor cadence as there are on the outside bikes. Any suggestions? Has anyone else had a similar experience?
