I’m new into TR or any structured training. I’m only into cycling for a year now. Been doing TR for few weeks now and most of the advise cadence is to spin at least 85rpm.
I don’t have any problem spinning to 85rpm as my average cadence on most workout is between 92-100rpm per session and on outdoor I usually average 85-90rpm.
The problem is holding my power at certain cadence. It tends to be very erratic. For example holding my cadence at 90-95rpm on 95% FTP. Suddenly I see my cadence is jumping into 105+ so power is overshooting the target which causing me to get tired easily on sustain efforts.
Then one of the workout I tried this morning advised me to lower down my cadence at least 10rpm of my normal cadence so I tried to drop it further to like 65-70rpm and to my surprise the power that I’m struggling to hold on my normal cadence is fairly easy to hold on slower cadence.
Now I’ve been thinking which should I go with going forward?
