Your Cadence, measured in RPMs (rotations per minute), is how fast you're pedaling.
Resistance, measured as a percentage of the maximum resistance (0 - 100 percent), is your level of difficulty, which can be set by turning the resistance knob. Turn the knob right to increase difficulty and left to decrease difficulty.
Your Output, measured in Watts, is how much power you are exerting at any point in time. You can increase your output by increasing your cadence, your resistance, or both.
Total Output, measured in KJ (kilojoules), is how much work you've done over the whole ride. This is calculated by taking the average output times the number of seconds in the ride divided by 1,000. For instance, if you average 100 Watts in a 2,700-second ride (45 minutes), your total output will be 270 KJ. If you want to increase your total output and move up the leaderboard, you'll need to keep your output high over the full ride. This may mean increasing your resistance, possibly even above what the coach recommends.
Your ride is your ride. We encourage you to push past boundaries and work hard, but we know that everyone is different. Overall, it is most important that you make sure the challenge is at the right level for you.
