Con­sider the fol­low­ing 10 strength train­ing tips: 5. IN­DI­VID­UAL PRO­GRES­SION 6. SPECIFICITY 7. CON­SIS­TENCY 8. TIM­ING

Triathlon Magazine Canada - - FEATURES -

Although strength train­ing can, and should be, pe­ri­odized in na­ture, each ath­lete pro­gresses at their own rate. Ge­net­ics, pre­vi­ous ex­pe­ri­ence, age, gen­der and mo­ti­va­tion are all fac­tors that af­fect your pro­gres­sion. Make sure the ex­er­cises you choose to per­form are as spe­cific to triathlon as pos­si­ble. The ex­er­cises should be ones where you can in­crease the re­sis­tance over time. Con­sis­tency is even more im­por­tant than specificity in all as­pects of your train­ing, not just strength. Try to time your strength work­outs each week so they hap­pen a day or two af­ter a qual­ity bike or run in­stead of the day be­fore.
