Improve your ability to ride short climbs with the help of the cycling training sessions in this video. These workouts are intended to take place on your road bike on a local climb but it they can also be adapted for an indoor trainer or turbo trainer.

The sessions focus on threshold, VO2 max and explosive power. You can use a powermeter, a heart rate monitor, or just a watch and your perceived effort levels.

We'd love to hear how you get on with these training sessions. Let us know down in the comments and don't forget to share this video!
