See what it takes to maximize multisport strength, power, speed, and endurance. Triathlon Anatomy will show you how to improve your performance by increasing muscular strength and optimizing the efficiency of every movement.
Triathlon Anatomy features 82 of the most effective multisport exercises with step-by-step descriptions and full-color anatomical illustrations highlighting the muscles in action. But you’ll see much more than the exercises—you’ll also see their results.
Triathlon Anatomy places you at the starting line and into the throes of competition by fundamentally linking each exercise to multisport performance. You’ll see how to strengthen muscles and increase stamina for running across various terrains, cycling steep inclines, and swimming in open water.
You’ll learn how to modify exercises to target specific areas, reduce muscle tension, and minimize common injuries. Best of all, you’ll learn how to put it all together to develop a training program based on your individual needs and goals.
