Summary

This is a short and focussed Hill Strength programme intended to compliment your existing training plan.

The workouts are of varying intervals designed to develop your cycling strength. These will be performed as seated efforts and only when attacks are prescribed should you work out of the saddle.

The focus should be on quality over quantity; adjust the number of intervals according to your ability and capacity to perform at a high level. There may be times that it is best to skip the session if you arent adequately commited to the workout.

Ensure you have warmed up suitably and recover well between workouts.
