Format: Paperback
Weight Training for Triathlon - The Ultimate Guide by Ben Greenfield is an important contribution to physical training. The book covers muscle mass issues, injuries, nutrition, ointments, supplements and stretches in considerable detail with illustrative pictures throughout. There is an extensive foreword by Dr.David Minkoff MD. The foreword covers the many benefits of an exercise regimen, good nutrition and supplements for everyone.

Ben Greenfield indicates that muscle mass must be manageable while providing strength and power, particularly for activities such as cycling. Classic injuries to areas such as the back, neck, shoulder, knees, hamstrings and ankles are explained with the applicable preventive strategies.

The whole area of plyometrics is covered. In plyometric movements, muscles are loaded and then contracted in rapid sequence. The strength, elasticity and innervation of muscles and surrounding tissues are employed to jump higher, throw farther or hit harder depending upon the training goal.

Plyometrics is used to increase the speed or force of muscular contractions, providing explosiveness for a variety of activities. The benefits include injury prevention, power development and improved running performance. With plyometrics, athletes can run at the same speed while consuming less oxygen.

The whole area of nutrition is integrated into the workout for athletes. Sample foods include whey protein, yams, dried nuts and quinoa. Supplements include Vitamin C, glucosamine chondroitin for cartilage repair, Omega 3, Vitamin D, Coenzyme Q 10, probiotics and fresh fruits like berries.

Information on ointments and body rubs is included. i.e. arnica rubs, Tiger Balm, magnesium clay (magnesium oil) and others.

I bought this book because I was looking for workout plans that allowed me to build strength while maintaing my run time. This book is very detailed and contains activity specific, workout routines. I also enjoy the workouts since I am not looking to spend hours in the gym because I would rather focus on swimming, biking, and running. Although short, the workouts are thorough and focused on building muscle specifically for triathlon events. Highly recommend.

It's a complete waste of money, you can find all the pictures on the Internet free. Extremely disappointed. There is no real information
