High-cadence pedaling

HCP - High-cadence pedaling helps to develop pedaling efficiency (decreases wasted effort) and increases "natural" pedaling cadence (increases capacity to produce power).
During HCP sets, you'll pedal as fast as you can, in race position, without bouncing in the saddle. The force exerted on the pedals should be extremely light. If you're new to HCP, start with a set of multiple 1- to 2-minute repetitions with up to 2-minute recoveries between them. Try to pedal with a cadence of at least 100 rpms. From session to session, increase the duration of the repetitions and/or decrease the recovery. You'll know you've arrived when you can hold a cadence of 115 or greater for a single 15-minute repetition.
