Triathlon Swimming Mastery Program

Are you frustrated with your swimming training? Are you wanting to leapfrog over the competition, and finish your triathlon swim with lots of energy left over for the bike and run? The Triathlon Swim Mastery program from Tri Swim Coach offers a 3-step plan to help get you through a triathlon swim:

1. Technique mastery
2. Workout mastery
3. Open water mastery
Kevin KoskellaSwimming for Triathlon Athletes
Kevin was an All-American swimmer in college and coached masters swimmers and triathletes off and on for years in California. At first he was BAFFLED as to why these athletes were not able to swim properly! He then became angry with the status quo, and went on a mission to save swimmers and triathletes from all the misinformation and techniques that….well, basically don’t work that are commonly taught out there. So he gathered all the information he could, from various books, websites, live courses, and chats with well-known swim coaches and successful triathletes, and developed Tri Swim Coach. Kevin’s coaching philosophy differs from the traditional approach to competitive swimming: He believes that the best swimming techniques are different than the traditionally taught styles.

Triathlon Workout #4
By: Kerry Sullivan




  

More triathlon workout ideas from the Rock Star Triathlete Academy, that you can stick in your workout bag to keep things interesting.

1. Urban Running (can't run 5 blocks without running 1 on a curb, must jump 3x onto every bench, stoplights isometric squat, stair must repeat 1x


This is a fantastic triathlon workout when you're stuck downtown, live in the city, or must run in an urban environment. Simply strap on the running shoes and head out on our run, but follow these simple rules: 1) you can't run for more than 5 blocks without either sprinting 1 block or running 1 block balanced "on the curb"; 2) anytime you pass a bench, you must stop and jump onto it three times; 3) anytime you have to stop at a stoplight or stop sign, go into a deep squat and hold it until it's time to run again; 4) anytime you go up a flight of stairs, you have to go back down to the bottom and climb the stairs one more time.


2. Mile Marker Madness


This workout requires you to be riding your bike in an area with clearly identifiable mile markers. It works best for a shorter triathlon workout. Anytime you get to a mile marker, you get to stand and sprint for 15 seconds, then get down into your race position and time trial to the end of that mile. The next mile is an easy recovery spin.


3. Office Triathlon (elastic band pulls --and  lunge jumps --and jumping jacks)


So let's say you're stuck in your office, you have no time to get to the gym, on your bike, or even into a pair of running shoes, but you still want to do a triathlon workout. Here's a quick workout that will trigger your triathlon muscles without requiring you to change or leave your office. You'll need an elastic band, which you can find at just about any sporting goods store. Attach it to a stationary object in your office, and perform alternating arm pulls while kneeling or standing. Keep the elbows high, just like swimming and do as many as you can in one minute. Then switch to lunge jumps or lunges for another minute, in which you bend the front knee to at least 90 degrees, so that you work the cycling muscles. Finish with jumping jacks for 1 minute. If you have time, repeat the workout anywhere from 2-5x through.

Strength and conditioning exercises can not only make you stronger, but also help keep you injury-free and therefore, make you a better athlete, so we've put together a few simple exercises you could fit around your day. This exercise predominantly works your glute muscles and helps get them firing and functioning properly. Now, your glutes are needed for cycling and swimming, but they can be prone to switching off slightly and your hamstrings overcompensating for that weakness. Now, basically, all you need is some floor space, you can do it whilst watching the television, for example. Now, whilst lying on your back with your knees bent, you need to make sure you start by squeezing your glutes and then, just lift your hips up towards the ceiling, keeping your glutes firing the whole way through and then, lower down again gently. If you find that really easy and you're ready to progress, you can take it to doing it with one leg, make sure your hips stay level as you go up and then, lowering back down again. This is a simple exercise and, as a result, can be done pretty much anywhere. So, you could multitask, maybe doing it whilst you're doing the washing up or on the train on your commute to work. To progress it slightly, you can maybe hold at the top to really get those calves firing and then, lower down really slowly or even move it up to one leg at a time and then, if you did want to increase the range of movement, maybe do it on the edge of a step so you can drop your heel down that much lower. This is another exercise you can do in front of the TV and all you need is a bench or a chair with a firm edge and a little bit of space for your legs. Now, as the exercise says, it predominantly works you triceps, but also uses the rest of your shoulder muscles. Basically, all you need to do is lower your body down with your elbows pointing backwards. To make it easier, you can do it with your knees bent. If you want to make it harder, just move your feet slightly further away and have your knees straight. This is an easy exercise to fit into your day. You can maybe do it whilst lying in bed in the morning, having a cup of tea, or just before you go to sleep. You need to be lying on your side with your hips parallel to the wall in front of you with your knees roughly to a 90 degree bend and then, keeping your feet touching, all you need to do is lift your knee up towards the ceiling, keeping your hips level, and then, lowering it back down. It's particularly good for activating glute mead, which sometimes can be prone to switching off or having an imbalance.

US Sports Online Strength and Conditioning 2 Day Sports Specific Training Programs

I was first introduced to Sports Specific Training by one of my former High School Football Coaches Kevin Rogers  who I continue to credit and thank to this day, for teaching me strength and power basics that I am able to share with you today.
Related image
Check out some of our 2 day training programs and when you are ready to train the right way for your sport, activity, or life click here and fill out the fitness profile form and I will contact you in 24 hours or less with your program recommendations. Keep in mind that these are only a few of the programs that I can custom design and deliver to you anywhere in the world. Online saving money and time over traditional in person training. 

And make no mistake if you can afford and schedule a qualified in person coach, Do It! There is no substitute. However, if a good strength coach or personal trainer is not feasible or affordable, I am here for you and have been since 1999. So let's get to to work!



Sports Specific Workouts

The Sports Specific Programs are designed to give people an exercise program tailored to the demands of their chosen sporting activities. All sports, from Golf to Football, have specific movements and physical demands that can be improved with proper training. The knowledge and experience that goes into each of these sports specific programs is what makes them so effective.

The most important attribute of any quality training program is injury prevention. Knowing how to start a program is the first step. These Sports Specific Programs provide injury prevention by first establishing a strength and conditioning base. The sets, repetitions, exercise prescription, and actual weight of the programs are based off an initial fitness level and specific strength to bodyweight ratio's. With simple feedback, the progression of the program will follow the body’s unique adaptation process to exercise.

Whether the goal is performance enhancement or simply the enjoyment of participation in a favorite activity, these Sports Specific Programs can and will provide great results!

Built For Comfort and Speed!

Hello Athletes and Warriors!
Possibly one of the most difficult of sports to excel at is the Triathlon. Back in the day meatheads in gyms around the world used to joke about a typical triathlete's body. Like exhibit A:
Image result for skinny triathlete
Nothing necessarily wrong with the example above, but many who didn't know better would call that low body fat percentage and lack of bulk unhealthy.
But with advances in the science of sports strength and conditioning, nutrition and lifestyle, the typical triathlete physique has advanced in aesthetic as well as performance in all aspects of the sport:

Image result for skinny triathlete
Whether you are an aspiring Olympian, or looking to look and feel better. Make sure strength is at the cornerstone of your program. Then you can thank our local meatheads for saying you're "built like a triathlete"
-Nate

Triathlon
The 12-Week Triathlon Programs focus on developing muscular endurance and strength. The program begins with lower weights and higher repetitions to create a solid conditioning base for the muscles. Then, a transition from this conditioning base into strength by using heavier weights and less reps as the weeks progress will occur. It is ideal to take 48 hours of rest between each weight training session. However, if scheduling makes this hard to do then simply choose the Consecutive Day Plan. With these Triathlon Programs, training with any combination of days is easy!

Throughout the length of the Triathlon Programs, the manipulation of the sets and repetitions for each exercise will be based on periodization concepts that involve changing the intensity and the volume of the workouts.

The starting point of the program is based on an initial fitness level. With feedback, the actual progression of the program will follow the body's unique adaptation process to exercise. Fine tune the program to include all the exercises that feel the best.
