Hill repeats. Mix up cadence or disparate sessions?

I’m planning hill repeat sessions (outdoors!!)
To get optimum adaptions would it be beneficial to
Mix up cadence / effort within a single session. So do some low cadence, hard gearing and some higher cadence, easier gear, attacking the hill.

Or to separate these different approaches over 2 sessions?

The TR workouts do both, so i guess just do what you want.

I like mixing the cadence within these sessions. I do so with an eye towards the efforts and timing that I expect to use in my events.


You after a muscular or cardiovascular response to the sessions?

I need to develop both.
I’m thinking specifically targeting one of them in a single session would be the most effective…

And then as mcneese.chad suggests, mixing them up as I specialise.
