10 minutes cool down.


>> pedal 80-90rpm

This can help you improve your pedal stroke over the deadspot and increase natural cadence.
Benefits are a more circular pedaling thus easier to find rhythm and improve your cruising speed.
It will also develop the weak hip extensions to help raise the leg during the upstroke which can help improve your cruising speed.
