Warming Up & Cooling Down

Vital for preparing your body for exercise and avoiding injury. Here are some ideas….

 

Strength & Conditioning

Core muscles in particular can make a huge difference to your speed in all of the disciplines. If you can fit in some time in the gym it will be well worth it.

Stretching

Good flexibility is often rare in triathletes but it will reduce your time out with injury, increase your stroke length in swimming, and improve your posture while cycling. Make time to stretch after training and if you can, go to Pilates.

 

Sports Massage

Sports massage speaks for itself. It may not be the most pleasant experience at the time but during the following training sessions you will definitely feel the benefits. If you’re training for a big event sports massage is worth considering.
