“Smash your Uphill Strava Time or Peak for a Hill Climb Time Trial race!”
Training plan description: Do you want to break a personal high climb record or prepare for an upcoming hill climb time trial race where you want to compete at your very best? This training plan has been specifically designed to prepare you for a hill climb time trial style effort of between 10-30 minutes in duration. Whether you live where there are no hills or in the mountains, this plan will work for you.
The plan is flexible and you can move days around and also extend the duration of rides if you are accustomed to doing more hours. You can also do the plan mostly indoors.
This plan is designed with an initial 2 weeks of threshold improvement training. The final 4 weeks' focus is to increase your VO2 max and perform specific race simulation training. You should have a good level of fitness starting this plan and be accustomed to cycling at least 5-6 hours a week on average.
The training is with Power and is designed in the Workout Builder format which provides your personalized power zones in each training session which are calculated automatically from your Threshold number inputted under settings. Additional benefits of the Workout Builder format include direct training session sync to your Garmin or Wahoo device and training session upload to Zwift, TrainingRoad, CycleOps and more.
