I love teaching pyramid profiles in my classes and I find that it’s a ride that I return to again and again. The idea of the pyramid is quite simple and there are many different ways to create profiles using the basic premise.
With this particular profile, we are riding two pyramids with recoveries at the top and then again between each pyramid. If you have never used a pyramid profile before, you will notice that as you climb the pyramid, the timing of the intervals increases, until you reach the top and then as you descend, the timing decreases.
If you are able to, I always find it helpful to create a visual for your riders so that they can follow along — see this[wlm_private 'PRO-Platinum|PRO-Monthly|PRO-Gratis|PRO-Seasonal|Platinum-trial|Monthly-trial|PRO-Military|30-Days-of-PRO|90 Day PRO|Stages-Instructor|Schwinn-Instructor|Instructor-Bonus|28 Day Challenge'] profile graphic included with the Profile.
The music can easily be changed out in this profile to incorporate your favorites, but I’ve used some of my favorite songs of the summer here in this profile. I hope you enjoy it!
Listen to my presentation of this profile.
I'd love to know how your class likes this profile![/wlm_private]
