Video: 3 training tips to make you better on long climbs

Getting better at climbing means you’ll enjoy your cycling more. And you’ll feel less intimidated by longer tougher rides.

 

Your ability to ride well on long climbs is related to your functional threshold power, or how hard you can ride for an hour without blowing up.

If you want to climb better, you need to raise that threshold.

The video below explores three types of training efforts or sessions to improve this area of your game.

You may not fly up the hills like Dan Martin after training in this way, but you should at the very least get a bit better on those long climbs.

Even small improvements can mean you get over those inclines out training, racing or in sportives with groups that may have dropped you before.

This can make cycling a lot more enjoyable and cause you to stress less about those climbs you know are coming up just down the road.

And the better your climbing is, the less likely you are to be intimidated by longer rides and/or those with some hills.
