All plans by this Coach


4 Weeks

Plan Description

You will find 3 basic strength workouts here. Equipment needed: TRX, Swiss Ball.

Strength training WILL NOT make you a faster triathlete; swimming, cycling and running will do.
But strength is a PLATFORM you can build your specific training on. Think a strong fundament.
Only the fool builds his house on the sand.

The critical components of the strength.

Mobility – will allow you to be efficient; you will have a better posture while running, more aero position on the bike and streamline in water.

Foundation Strength – become as strong human as possible and then build endurance performance on the top

Stability – postural strength and fitness, will allow you to keep your form for longer, so when the fatigue kicks in (it will, especially on the long course) you will be able to perform strong.

Synchronisation and Coordination – again, more efficiency!

Power Production – increase number of fibres used, so you can generate more power, hence move faster

Injury Prevention and recovery – strong muscle recover quicker and are less prone to the injury
