I have a question regarding cadence…
In a lot of the workouts, it is recommended to perform the workouts at 85-95rpm. My go to cadence for anything tempo and above is probably 100-103rpm. It probably goes without saying but anything tempo, SS, threshold and above is massively inefficient for me below 85rpm
When it comes to threshold and above, spinning at 95 or below is very tough, and I could never hope to hold this cadence for very long. It raises my HR and my legs seem to light up very quickly.
I can average over 100rpm for long rides so this isn’t really a problem for me, but is there a chance that I’m missing out on adaptations or gains by not being able to grind out high power at lower cadences?
Thanks in advance for any input!
