"Strength Training for Triathletes shows how adding strength training to your exercise program can yield significant performance results."” — Triathlete magazine
"Strength Training for Triathletes is easy to follow and light on jargon. All the basic principles are clearly explained without smothering you in sports science—it's a refreshingly simple approach that leaves you free to concentrate on the exercise rather than the book. Essential reading for anyone mystified by what to do in the gym." —Tri247.com
Strength equals speed
Most athletes already know this, and as a triathlete, you probably know that strength also builds endurance. But traditional strength training programs are too general to benefit triathletes.
In Strength Training for Triathletes, fitness phenom and tri coach Patrick Hagerman demonstrates, with easy-to-follow exercises, how small changes in muscle strength add up to big race results. Hagerman’s program of triathlon-specific strength training provides four essential benefits:
• Greater muscular power
• Increased speed in every triathlon leg
• Reduced body fat with greater lean tissue mass
• Increased muscular endurance with less fatigue
This groundbreaking book includes comprehensive information on how to create a strength routine for best results, whether you’re preparing for a sprint, Olympic, Ironman 70.3®, or Ironman® event. Sample plans for each race distance and instruction on how to address your specific needs make it easy to achieve your personal goals. Illustrated exercises are organized by swim, bike, run, and core and grouped by upper and lower body so you can concentrate your routine on your particular weakness, or limiter.
Endurance, strength, and power are the keys to triathlon. Strength Training for Triathletes is the complete resource for building and balancing all three for optimum performance.
