Reading your Thread, I did a test on my machine.
I set the machine at 550 to 600 Calories per hour for my 195 LB weight and speed of 20 MPH approx. held constant.
I held 100 RPM cadence at a certain strain level.
Next I did 90 RPM at a 10% lower strain level. Same speed and calories.
So, the question is if one can do higher cadence for a long time or lower cadence but higher strain on muscles and joints. I do not know what is better.
