The definition of "Vertical Kilometre" is simple: 1000 metres of altitude difference over the shortest possible distance.
The KMV light of the Bastille is 410m of D+ over a distance of 4.1km with an average slope of 10%.
Marks are positioned every 50m of difference in altitude on the course, they serve as landmarks when you climb, or to carry out your training by splitting the climb.
The departure from Porte Saint-Laurent and the arrival at Mont Jalla.
The objectives of this type of training are to increase the ability to make long efforts on hills and to increase the climbing speed by doing Long and Very Long Interval training. This will allow you to go faster during the long climbs of classic Trails and KMV competitions. This type of course also allows you to improve your strength through very intense short exercises, combined with passive recovery.
When you repeat the ascent several times in the same session, if you want to obtain the best possible result, the ideal would be not to go down on foot. Indeed, the type of effort required by the climb is very different from that of the descent. Since we are on a climbing improvement session, it is preferable not to combine the two, but to separate them on specific sessions. This makes it possible to recover properly, and above all to guarantee the expected muscle improvements. Here it is possible thanks to the cable car.
