I agree. I started through the 12 week FTP builder and in week 4 day 2, the workout type is SFR/Tempo. I hadn’t head of SFR, so I needed to look it up. Apparently it is pushing a large gear with a low cadence. Kinda seems the opposite of Tempo training if you ask me, but what do I know. I haven’t done this day’s training yet (I was just looking ahead), so I hope there is some indication as to where my cadence should fall for the different parts of the training.
On another note, when I did the FTP test during one of the parts of the ride, I remember seeing something that said to pedal faster. So apparently some of the workouts look for cadence to some level.
