Strength Training for Triathletes, 2nd ed

Complete program to build triathlon power, speed and...


Strength Training for Triathletes offers a comprehensive strength training program that will help triathletes build power, speed and muscular endurance for faster racing over any race distance.

Certified USA Triathlon coach and NSCA Personal Trainer of the Year Patrick Hagerman, EdD, reveals a focused, triathlon-specific strength training program that will enable triathletes to push harder during training and on the race course when the effort is hardest. Triathletes who master this program will also become more resistant to injury, meaning fewer missed workouts.

Hagerman offers 75 of the most effective strength training exercises for triathlon swimming, cycling, and running plus core strength and general conditioning. Full-colour photographs illustrate each simple exercise, which are grouped so athletes can focus on their own individual performance limiters.

Strength Training for Triathletes develops the following abilities in triathletes:-

* more powerful, longer-lasting muscles
* resistance to fatigue and injury
* improved body composition with stronger, leaner muscle mass
* better performance without added bulk

Strength training often separates the top performers in triathlon from the middle of the pack. Even small improvements in muscle strength can add up to big race results.

Dr. Patrick Hagerman, EdD, FNSCA, CSCS, NSCA-CPT, HFI, is the Director of Sport Skill Development for Quest Personal Training. He has been a professor of exercise and sports science, a university level strength and conditioning coach, a personal trainer, and an athlete. He is certified by the NSCA and ACSM; is a USA Triathlon - and USA Weightlifting - certified coach; and has competed in triathlon, cycling, windsurfing, and adventure racing for over 25 years. He is widely published.
