Climbing Intervals - Basic

Climbing Intervals are the name of the game to improve your maximal sustained power output when the road turns up. Whether its Strava PR’s or a race with some serious vertical gain, a climbing intervals training plan will put you on the start line well prepared. You’ll start with a 20min Field Test to set your Functional Threshold Power and Heart Rate in the included FasCat Zones Sheet, then use your training zones to ride just hard enough to get faster & stronger without burning out so you can go hard again the next day! That means lots of Tempo and Sweet Spot as well as Threshold intervals during the week and group rides or other harder efforts on the weekends. After some recovery, you’ll finish the plan with another Field Test to see how much your FTP has improved! Start this plan 6 weeks before your climbing goal event Additionally, this training plan includes all the “marginal gains” details to get even faster: Recovery Techniques, Rest Days, Yoga, Foundations, and best of all, Strength and Conditioning – all you need is a physical therapy style rubber band and MOTIVATION! There are instructional videos in the plan for you to follow along at home. Questions about improving your climbing using our training plan?
