These land based training plans compliment our triathlon and single sport plans and require minimal equipment and space.
All movements within the plans are suitable for home training, holiday’s and other times of travel. Only two items are required for following all movements in the plans; a stretch cord / thera band / power band / bungee cord and a broom or mop handle (hotels will provide one if you ask nicely!).
The focus of each plan is to get the key muscles / muscle groups and joints associated with the chosen sport moving and activating. Following the movement descriptions and completing them through full ranges of motion will promote movement efficiency, posture, and coordination.
Specific without being specific
Although each training plan contains movements that will promote efficiency, the movements are NOT triathlon/sport specific. Sports specificity – attempting to replicate “exact” movements related to a sport – yields limited benefits compared to incorporating basic compound movements that use large muscle groups in cooperation with each other.
For example, the swim plan contains movements that are similar to the underwater phase of swimming, but the objective of the movement is NOT to attempt to replicate it fully. If you try to replicate the swim action you will miss out on important muscle activation related to posture and force production – ultimately being more useful for swimming, cycling and running!
