The Endurance Specific Podcast


How do you get the performances you are after? Well, between guest podcasts I have decided to go all in on giving you all the tools you need to get the race performances you are after, while also not killing your health. Today Charlotte and start continue with the performance series and what you need to do, or develop to become the best athlete you can. The topic of today is that you need to be strong. Triathlon is not just an aerobic endurance sport. In fact, it's a strength endurance sport. You need to be strong. You need to recruit more muscle fibers and to develop triathlon specific motor patterns to help you maintain form under duress. That is how you get your PR's and how you get the performances you dream of. 


  • Why strength matters
  • Low cadence on the bike
  • When to put strength training
  • Fatigue and how it differs depending on the system you are training
  • Strength specific training within the component sports
  • Bike trainers
  • And more
