    I’ve noticed that during the longer AnT intervals, my cadence wants to drop below 90. Is it better to drop into the 80’s and keep the power in the target zone, or keep up the cadence and reduce the resistance (and power)? Thanks!

    I’d say keep the power & HR on target even if it means dropping cadence a bit. Below 75 rpm would start to get too low, but if you can stay on targets with cadence in the 80s you’re doing well.

    Higher cadence takes more aerobic function so it often ‘feels harder’ to keep power up (and HR in check) that way vs. lower cadence (which puts more emphasis on muscular demand).

    Thanks for the question!
