TriSpecific | Ironman Triathlon Coaching Podcast

With the launch of our Bottlenecks Project, Pete and I decided to get on and talk about the fundamentals. 4 basic bottlenecks which really need to be covered before anything else. We do mention a 5th in the episode because frankly it is the overriding bottleneck that stops us from really removing the 4 discussed in this podcast, the four we dive into in our successful Ironman/70.3 Blueprint systems and all other bottlenecks that exist.

Show Notes Bullets

  • The Basic Nutrition Principles
  • Getting Enough Sleep
  • Training Right
  • Tissue Work
  • And the solutions to these above

I literally have two pages of notes from this interview with Greg Bennett. Pete and I really enjoyed our chat with GB but when someone has been around as long as Greg and won as many big time races along with being part of a winning team with his wife Laura (we will have to get Laura on the show soon) one needs to take note.

There is much wisdom gained and things I know I’ll add to my toolbox to help me going forward.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The thing that keeps them going
  • Stepping up VS stepping out
  • Talent VS hard work
  • Big tips on visualisation, and something we are adding
  • Distracting from pain
  • What being professional means
  • The game that helped Greg winning the biggest prize purse ever
  • Why you want to be nervous
  • Becoming the athlete you need to become
  • Investing in yourself
  • Planning long
  • Leveraging passion
