Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It’s no secret: most triathletes are weak swimmers. Improving your swim will make you a faster, more confident triathlete, and you’ll enjoy your time in the water.

Swim Workouts for Triathletes, 2nd Ed. will help you develop real swimming speed. This waterproof book of 75 swim workouts provides the structure, variety, and drills triathletes need to become more efficient and faster swimmers. Each workout is designed around a specific goal—endurance, speed, form, muscular endurance, or anaerobic endurance—making it easy to prepare for events of different distances and improve all-around swimming skill.

Supplement your current training plan with these workouts or use one of the book's four swim training plans to prepare for triathlon's most popular swim distances. You’ll improve your efficiency and feel for the water with illustrated technique drills. New 30-minute workouts help slower swimmers or those with limited pool time get up to speed.

Swim Workouts for Triathletes means no more swimming in circles. Take this waterproof book to the pool with you, and you’ll be swimming real workouts that will make you a faster swimmer and a better triathlete.

Synopsis:

Gale Bernhardt's training plans have helped tens of thousands of self-coached athletes reach their multisport goals. Every detail of how to train for a triathlon of any distance, an off-road triathlon, or a duathlon is here, including plenty of swim, bike, and run workouts to keep training fresh and breakthrough workouts to make training more rewarding. Bernhardt's proven methods are the basis for each of the book's 15 unique training plans, removing the hassle of creating a plan from scratch. This second edition includes easy tips on modifications that allow triathletes to further personalize the plans; a new chapter on 13 Weeks to a Sub-13 Hour Ironman; eight training plans requiring only five to ten hours of training per week; and five training plans to go farther. This book has a challenge to suit everyone, from beginners to accomplished triathletes, for those short on training time and those who are training for a faster time.

Synopsis:

Anyone looking to participate in a charity ride, multi-day tour, or team cycling event can count on Training Plans for Cyclists to help reach their goal. Seventeen detailed training plans prepare first-time finishers or experienced riders for events ranging from 30 to 100 miles. Bicycling explorers can use the touring training plans to get fit for three 25-mile days or seven 80-mile days. Off-road adventurers get the prep they need for their next weekend in the woods or an upcoming mountain bike competition. With chapters devoted to the basics of nutrition, stretching, and strengthening, this book is an essential guide for anyone who participates in cycling events or wants to start. From the cyclist who rides for fitness and not competition, to the cyclist who is only looking to drop fellow cyclists on next weekend's group ride, Training Plans for Cyclists has a plan to fit every agenda.

Competitive swimmers and coaches can build a training plan using a variety of workouts from each category to improve speed and skills.
