Calling all Triathletes!
Serious endurance athletes understand the importance a proper strength training program can have in their performance. You should treat your time in the weight room as seriously the time you spend in the saddle. Understanding the physiological demands of endurance sport and following an intelligent strength training program can be the difference between a PR and a DNF.

LATEST RESEARCH REVIEW
I got by, but I remember hating school up until about sophomore year of college. I never really had the opportunity to study more specialized subjects at a young age and began at VaTech as an engineer. Obivously, a great career choice, but not the path for me.

Issue No.1 will come out at the end of September, so stay tuned for the first of many!

You can't afford to waste time in the weight room, and need to develop a system that allows you to be efficient, effective, and focused to help achieve your goals.
