A structured, power-based plan designed to help you build towards a hill climb season or sharpen your climbing ability by developing your VO2 Max and anaerobic power.
This plan is a 4-week block of training, perfect for building towards a hill climb season. This is also for you if you have no races scheduled but want to greatly improve your ability to climb and sustain high power for short, punchy climbs (3-8 minutes).
-Fully structured power-based workouts.
-Each workout is described clearly and is coupled with a description as to its purpose for training adaptations.
-Progressive TSS build towards the culmination of the plan, designed for you to peak in the final week.
-All workouts designed for power meter users (HR not supported).
-All workouts are exportable (to your Wahoo, Garmin, Zwift, Trainer Road etc.).
-Improve VO2 Max and anaerobic capacity through proven methods.
-Provide varied workouts that help you maintain enthusiasm for training.
-Build greater force production during short efforts.
-Unlimited athlete-initiated Q&A through e-mail contact with advice also available on strength training.
NOTE: Please make sure you set an up-to-date FTP before beginning this plan so power levels are defined accurately and so you are able to accurately track TSS. This plan has been specifically designed for experienced road cyclists who already have a strong base fitness and are ready for demanding training. If you use this plan to build towards a race at the end of the 4 weeks, please sub out the final power test for your event- this will ensure peak form for the event.
