Welcome to the TeamKattouf 12-week Olympic distance Triathlon beginner training plan designed by Dr. Rick Kattouf and Cameron Dorn! Get ready for some fun...swim, bike, run, and weight training! Many times, weight/resistance training is missing in triathlon training plans. It is the weight training that will assist in building lean muscle, thereby, increasing power and strength. It is this power and strength that will help your swim, bike, and run. Plus, building lean muscle will help to increase your metabolism; who doesn't want a faster metabolism, right? This plan will take you through swim, bike, and run assessments. Following the run and bike assessments, I will walk you through determining your proper heart rate training zones. (pdf file is included when you purchase this plan; this will explain how to determine your hr zones). This plan averages 5-7.5 hours of training each week, therefore it is very manageable for the busy individual. We all lead busy lives, and time management is critical; this program will help you with that. If you are ready for a solid and systematic training plan, and you are ready to get into great shape, the TeamKattouf 12-week Oly tri plan is for you! I wish you the best in your training and racing endeavors!

Sample Day 4

Swim Assessment

200 warm up
3 by 300's each with 30 seconds rest
Make sure to record each 300 time.
Adequate pacing is KEY!
200 cool down; Record each 300 time, and average the 3. Then, based on the average 300 time, determine your average 100. For example, if your three 300's were 4:20, 4:30, and 4:40; your average 300 time is 4:30; now, divide your 4:30 x 3 to get your average 100 time...this is 1:30. Another exaple, let's say your three 300's were 5:50, 6:00, 6:10; your average 300 time is 6:00; then divide this by 3, which equals 2:00, and that is your average 100 time per 300. As you progress through this pogram, your can now measure your improvement!
