Calories Burned:  408 calories per hour   (based on a body weight of 150 lbs.)
Instructions: 
As a form of rest between variable effort speed training intervals, you should complete 1-2 minutes of very easy cycling at an RPE of approximately 2.

RPE stands for Rate of Perceived Exertion and is based on a 10-point scale.

10 = extreme exertion -- conversation is impossible

8 = high effort -- conversation is extremely labored

6 = optimum effort -- conversation is difficult, but possible

4 = medium effort -- conversation is easy to maintain

2 = warm up
