Strength Training for Triathletes - The Complete Program to Build Triathlon Power, Speed, and Muscular Endurance.Strength Training for Triathletes.Keen to dive in to this one. It doesn't appear until Dec 15 (on Amazon, that is), but looks intriguing nonetheless. We'll be taking a look at it once it launches, in the meantime though, a snippet from the Amazon page : 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 progressive strength training program will also become more resistant to injury, meaning fewer missed workouts. Strength Training for Triathletes. Nice one. NB : We first looked at this one in the weekly Strength & Fitness Newsletter (part of the Strength Kit).

Is there really a difference? Quite possibly.



Of course, if you enjoyed these, I'd highly recommend grabbing the Strength & Fitness Newsletter. Delivered weekly, and absolutely free.

(there's also a Daily Update, if you're looking for an even larger dose of training-related goodness.)

NB : If you'd like to write a guest post for Straight to the Bar, or if you'd like to join the team of Moderators here (I love hearing about everyone's training approaches) - get in touch. And if you've got a fitness competition or seminar coming up, add it to the calendar.

Look forward to hearing from you.
