Editorial Reviews

Review

One-Hour Workouts is a practical guide for on-the-go athletes who need to maximize their 60-minute training window. The book has something for athletes of all levels.” — Triathlete magazine

“[One-Hour Workouts is] an antidote to a busy day—just the thing for days where a one-hour window is all we’ve got…This rugged, spiral-bound book will hold its own when tossed into a bag alongside your gear, and it’s also compact, leaving plenty of room for that post-bike snack you’re already looking forward to.” — LAVA magazine

“I've been able to work almost all of [the One-Hour Workouts] into my training and I found them very effective...More than a few of them are now in my permanant rotation and are a welcome change. Interspersed throughout the book, the authors offer nuggets of advice and humor making it a great book for everyone from busy business professionals to homemakers.” — TriEdge.net

From the Back Cover

• Choose from Base, Tempo, and Speed workouts
• Modify workouts to match your fitness level

Make your time in the gym more fun with Molina's drill sessions for running and swimming and a fully illustrated strength regimen. If the gym's not for you, build muscular endurance for triathlon with a handful of 60-minute bricks.

Whether you are racing daybreak, breaking a sweat over your lunch hour, or stealing minutes wherever you can find them, these workouts will keep your endorphins flowing and your goals within reach even in the busiest weeks.

You get that for which you pay. This book delivers on its promise. None of the workouts are "run for one hour" either. As an active triathlete, I am always looking for workouts to insert into my annual training plan. This book comes with 50 base, tempo, and speed workouts in each discipline. Basically, that gives you five or six workouts you can incorporate into each phase of your training (base, build, peak, etc). In addition, the authors provide advice on almost all the workouts on how to change it up, adapt it to your situation, and create different flavors of the same workout. For those of us that crave variety, this book doesn't have enough workouts to build an entire annual training plan for every distance, but it does have some really good workouts and advice on how to implement them.

I gave this book five stars because it is deserved. What frustrates me, however, is a lack of "advanced workouts" that coaches save for the athletes they are personally training. Even just one or two of those per discipline would have been nice (and that's really the only complaint I could come up with :-). Overall, this book is an excellent value. A few judicious purchases of other books with workouts combined with some internet research, and you'll have everything you need to fill in the workouts for an entire season of triathlon training.

Even if you don't do tris. this is a great book. Great one hour workouts, I use it all the time. My 2 complaints are 1. some of the workouts are not well explained (like when do you take a rest lap etc) and the other is that it is "sweat proof" not water proof.
Has bonus lifting routines at the back.

I am new to triathlon training, and I needed some easy-to-grasp "short" workouts to get me started in my training over the winter. I was very impressed with the quality of the book's design & construction (all laminated pages, small enough to bring to the gym with you) and the clarity of the instructions. I can't wait to put these workouts to use!

Like most non-professional triathletes, I have a life. Meaning that I can't train 8 hours a day like pros do. These workouts are perfect for a busy person that lives a somewhat normal life. Just figure out what you want to do and execute.

The last triathlon training book I bought was written by a guy who thought I was a pro and didn't have any obligations outside of triathlon training.... idiot. This book takes life into account and is perfect, totally fits the bill.

One more note, the book only covers workouts and some strength training. Nutrition is not cover at all... doesn't bother me especially since I can't stick to fancy schmancy diets.

If you want to make sure you're getting everything you can out of a little amount of time while training for a triathlon this book is for you. I'm out of bed by 4:30 and in the pool by 4:40 and can still get to work by 7, even while taking care of all my lady business. It also has given me lots of ideas on how to train so that I don't lose my mind with boredom. I write the swim workout on my arm and it has been really effective. Lots of helpful tips and reasons why you need to incorporate certain aspects into your training, like brick.

Great workouts for those with limited time. Variety is key, as well as making the workout worth the effort. Great for athletes and those just needing some fresh workout ideas.
