Time to Get Your Strength On!

 

TIME TO GET YOUR STRENGTH ON!!

We are in the off season for triathlon! At this time of year, it's important to stop doing high intensity cardio workouts and give your body a break. Cardio should be in zone 2 and some in 3 with a focus on form and function. In the pool, we are working on stroke and pacing and on the bikes we are playing with pedal stroke, testing training zones and doing short zone 3 intervals. In the gym, we are working on power!

This is the time of year to get your strength on and increase power. It is also the time to rehab any nagging injuries that have been lingering over the racing season. 1st and foremost, see your therapist to rehab your injury and then when the injury is out of the acute pain stage, get rehab exercises and hit the gym!
If you'd like your injury assessed, Triumph Coach Adam Smart (RMT) has offered Team Triumph members a 25% discount at his massage therapy clinic Axis Registered Massage Therapy on McArthur Rd.

Before you do any strength training, make sure you do your 2 or 3 rehab exercises 1st then, work on power! The more powerful you are going into the next training phase the stronger you will swim, bike and run! We are also doing Power Yoga during our morning Triathlon Training workouts to correct imbalances created by triathlon sports which have us continually moving in the same direction. I have added an article on strength training to our Facebook page that sums up the reasons why to do strength training nicely. https://www.facebook.com/teamtriumphottawa

If you can't make the morning workouts but would like an off season strength training program, shoot me an email to start your journey to getting STRONG!! I'd be happy to send a strength training program your way for $40 or if you'd like a more personalized program we can set something more specific up for $95.
