Instructor Kathy Palkaninec contributes The Vicious Cycle, her Audio PROfile which was one of the winners of our Ultimate Instructor Class Profile contest.
Kathy teaches at MindBody Trendz in Cooper City, FL and she begins her profile like this:
Objectives and Interests:
This ride was created after researching metabolic conditioning sequence and how to burn stubborn body fat. I found the Ultimate Cardio Sequence by Shaun Hadsall. His explanation and sequence based on science inspired my “vicious cycle”. The name of the game is Intensity first. The protocol of this ride is based on the following: Once the heart rate is elevated in the warm up, the training goes into the “fight or flight” mode with short intense bursts over and over.
The Catecholamines are the hormones released by the adrenal glands in response to stress. Being part of the sympathetic nervous system they force the release of free fatty acids into the blood stream. These short bursts will create the famous” after burn” that can potentially increase metabolic rate up to 48 hours after exercise. Science has proven that free fatty acids do pour into the bloodstream after such high intensity training. However, research shows that these fatty acids, if not removed from the blood stream, will move to another place in the body and again re-store as fat.

Great podcast. I like when we hear what other instructors are doing for class content. It in spires me and helps me break the “cycle” (pun intended)
Great, great ride! This has been one of my favorites so far and not just mine but my class is giving me great feedback and loving it too. In fact they want me to teach it again next week! In addition to bringing new information to the table I also loved your music choices and how well they dovetail perfectly with the ride. The music makes the ride so easy to follow.
I usually get my ideas from this website and then cut and paste my own music and variations into it but this one was an exception. I used the whole enchilada! Thank you and i will be looking for more rides from you, so keep ’em coming!!!
