So a 2 minute steep hill climb is beyond the average rider.
I had this comment on my mind yesterday on a long hill climb, and I was thinking this hill probably goes for about 2 minutes, and I made a point of sitting down when the terrain suited it, even though I wasn't at my limit yet, and even though it was a very brief sit down. It would have to give the lactic acid build up a little reset.

That gives me an idea for the pull up bar hanging, using a timer app, I could set up a routine of 30 seconds hanging (on the pegs) followed by 10 seconds rest (sitting), for 4 or 5 minutes just to mix things up a bit.
