How to Develop a Faster Cadence, Part 4: 3 Video Tips for Quicker Pedaling

I’ve created an educational video to highlight three important tips when training a higher cadence. The first one is a technique tip that may solve the underlying reason some of your riders cannot seem to pedal faster than 95, 90, or for some, even as low as 85 rpm.

The second one is related to the neuromuscular adaptation we seek with higher cadence, and the third is on standing up at higher cadences. Should you do it? If so, for how long, and what are the considerations?

Let me know in the comments if you have any other questions about coaching riders at higher cadences—it might be easiest to address them in another video.
