Triathlon Training

Saturday Swim Session: Build 400’s

Swimming longer reps with a short to moderate rest between will build your endurance. This session is perfect for Ironman and Olympic distance triathletes or people doing longer Ocean Swims.

Friday Fartlek Run: Run Strong 400’s

Building your top end speed is a great for developing your VO2 Max. This session is great for runners and triathletes running events up to Half Marathon in distance.

Wednesday Windtrainer Workout: CTS Power Intervals B

This workout will develop your top end VO2 Max power. Enhancing your VO2 Max will pay dividends with your training by building your top end ability. This is a perfect workout for road cyclists, as well as Mountain Bikers and triathletes (particularly draft-legal triathletes).

Saturday Swim Session: Pull Buoy & Paddles

Utilising paddles and a pull buoy into your training will bring about some great enhancements in strength and efficiencies, if they aren’t over used. This session is perfect for Ironman and Olympic distance triathletes or people doing longer Ocean Swims.

200m is a great distance to build elements of both stamina and speed. Not pure speed like for a 25m or 50m sprint but sustained speed for longer events. This session is perfect for Ironman and Olympic distance triathletes or people doing longer Ocean Swims.

Friday Fartlek Run: 1,600 In/Outs

In/Outs are a session that develops your ability to clear lactic acid on the move. This is a perfect session for runners and triathletes running events up to Half Marathon in distance.

Wednesday Windtrainer Workout: CTS Over/Under Intervals

This workout will develop your ability to ride harder when already riding hard, such as when you are in a breakaway and need to take your pull on the front or surging up a hill during a time trial or triathlon. This is a perfect workout for road cyclists, as well as Mountain Bikers and triathletes.

Saturday Swim Session: 200m For Success
