Saw this post today on Facebook from Instructor Michael Philip Masters:


I recognize that there are a lot of people in my classes who, while not actually want to be "beat", do want music that will give that general feel 🙂

Track 1. wasn't familiar to me - but a quick listen on Spotify told me Dropkick Murphys — I'm Shipping Up To Boston would make an awesome closing track. I typically will have everyone replicate (or improve on) their earlier "Best Effort" threshold interval. The only trouble is that this track is too short at only 2:34. I'm looking for a three minute + finale to empty the tank.

This 72 RPM instrumental remix is HUGELY motivating and @ exactly 4:00 is the perfect length. The composition of this remix is such that your riders will have no idea what they have coming at them and a nice, abrupt ending that will signal the end of the interval. Nice.

Michael's second suggestion isn't bad either Laidback Luke — Turbulence has a perfect cue right at the 4-to-go point.
