A STRONG, well-conditioned spine is a priority for any athlete looking to avoid back pain. But it’s especially important for triathletes in order to cope with the volume and diversity of demands placed upon them by training and racing. As a physiotherapist working with triathletes, I’ve noticed many common problems with specific muscle groups getting weak or tight.

This training plan will give you the basic requirements to keep your back in the best condition for the sport. We’ll go through some simple stretches, exercises and drills all aimed at preparing your back to swim, bike and run. The plan has a dual purpose – it’s intended to prevent injury, but also optimise your performance.
