Strength Training

How do I fit strength training into my triathlon training? 

Such a great question. I have to swim, bike and run but now add strength training? Yes. Yes, you do. Strength training is essential for your success as a triathlete and this is what I suggest.Two times a week of full body work but here are the guidelines:

  • Get under the bar and lift some weights (Back squats, Front Squats, Deadlifts, Romanian Deadlifts, Shoulder to Overhead Movements).
  • More advanced triathletes, who have some Olympic lifting background, go for Power Cleans, Push Jerks, One Legged Romanian Deadlifts.
  • Work on your core and lower back with Toes to Bar, Knees to Elbows, V-Ups, Hollow Rocks, Supermans, etc
  • Do at least a 10-15 minute High Intensity Workouts or a WOD. Do the opposite of what you did on those lifts. This HIT work will help you in those last few minutes of your race, along with many other things.

All of this…should ONLY be an hour! If you have any more questions, feel free to contact me, so I can help you with your strength and conditioning plan designed specifically for you!
