The Well-Built Triathlete PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Well-Built Triathlete free pdf In "The Well-Built Triathlete," elite triathlon coach Matt Dixon rewrites conventional methods of triathlon training.
Dixon believes triathlon has focused too narrowly on training and workouts, neglecting equally critical areas of recovery, nutrition, and functional strength. When athletes fail to balance these four pillars of performance, they cannot reach their full potential.
"The ""Well-Built ""Triathlete" lays out a more comprehensive approach that considers the whole athlete. Dixon gives equal weight to training and workouts, recovery and rest, daily nutrition, and functional strength. He factors in the stresses and demands of career and family. He considers how different personality types are most likely to find success. "The ""Well-Built ""Triathlete" makes training more personal to each athlete -- and recognizes that athletes are far more than workout machines.
Dixon gets specific, too, helping athletes plan out their season and training plan. Chapters on swimming, cycling, and running explain the best ways triathletes should train for each. A Purple Patch section reveals how triathletes can peak their preparation for long streaks of top performance.
With Dixon's approach, triathletes will find their own perfect recipe of triathlon preparation and reach new levels of performance.
