Strength and Conditioning

Athletes need to create a physical platform to support the volume of training associated with endurance sports. Metabolically we can make progress quickly in our aerobic fitness, strength however lags behind, hence the higher ratio of injuries in new athletes or when we increase our training volumes.Basically you can have a V8 engine but it’s built around a ‘Rusty Chassis’ so you’ll never get the performance outcomes that your cars capable of!By following the program twice a week you will develop fundamental strength & support basic functional movement patterns associated with triathlon it will also aid in:

  • Injury Prevention
  • Improved Economy of movement
  • Allows greater capacity for increased work load

We will be integrating the following programs into the Monday night track sessions, should anyone have concerns with injuries or technique please see the coaching team to discuss.
