Structured Workouts: What Cadence?


(Elmar Heutelbach) #1

I did the   “6 Week Beginner FTP Builder Week 1 Day 4 - Tempo”  workout session. I am not sure about the cadence I need to perform. I did the performance segments with 110-120 rounds / minute and the recovery  segments with 80-95 rounds / minute. 

Is it OK? What cadence should I perform on other training sessions? 80? 90? 100 or more?

I reale love Zwift. It makes really fun.

Thanks.

You should choose the cadence which best suits you and matches what you use on the road. But the choice of cadence is a personal and controversial topic.

I will defer to more learned minds than mine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jh-5TYAtJI
