Your Best Triathlon: Advanced Training for Serious Triathletes Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

To reach their athletic goals, America's 1.1 million triathletes pay top dollar for personal access to the sport's top coaches yet the most sought-after coaches typically work with fewer than 10 athletes every year. This leaves the greater field of contenders in the hands of expensive computer-generated plans with little understanding of how these plans work and why they often don't.

Now all triathletes can benefit from the same expert coaching that the elites enjoy. In Your Best Triathlon Joe Friel illuminates every facet of advanced triathlon training. His meticulous instruction breaks down the season into specific goals that will elevate athletes toward record-breaking performances. Friel explains the nuances of key workouts so athletes can make adjustments for different race distances or individual weaknesses.

The versatility and detail of this book would be daunting to the average athlete, but for the experienced triathlete, it fills a void in training literature and provides the necessary background for adaptations that need to be made on a weekly and daily basis.

Your Best Triathlon is a book that triathletes will consult throughout the season and every day, just as they would check in with their coach. And with Joe Friel's experience guiding the way, triathletes can race faster and more efficiently than ever before.

 

Synopsis:

Your Best Triathlon is a master plan that will guide experienced triathletes through every week of their season. For each phase of training, Joe lays out the path to success, outlining clear objectives and the guidelines to meet them.

Joe Friel’s highly refined training plans for sprint, Olympic, half-Ironman®, and Ironman® race distances will help serious triathletes deliver a breakout performance, even those with countless races under their belt. Joe offers a tool kit of proven workouts that will isolate and develop specific abilities. Within each workout and plan, he offers easy modifications to better manage personal limiters and improve performance.

Hundreds of thousands of triathletes have relied on Joe Friel and his groundbreaking best seller, The Triathlete’s Training Bible, to develop their own self-coached training programs. Now Joe Friel, the most experienced coach in triathlon, reveals his formula for advanced training and coaches triathletes to their best race ever.
