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