To be more precise I've been following a HIIT on a cycloergometer and I found out this.


BPM: 105~120

Pedaling Rate: 60 rpm


BPM: 90~105

Pedaling Rate: 60 rpm

Basically my heart rate is diminished even though at the same resistance ( difficulty set on the c.e. ) I could exert the same rpms. What kind of adaptations are happening?

Take in mind that this measures are taken from the warm up phase before I begin my HIIT.

    so pedaling at the same speed with the same resistance is now less exhausting. Isn't that the whole point of cardio training?
