Weight Training 5 Years, 4 Months ago  
What is everyone's views on weight training? Should one be doing 2-3 days a week strengthening the muscles or should one just be focusing on the swimming, biking, running? Thanks!

Re: Weight Training 5 Years, 4 Months ago  
I do 2x a week during my base periods and 1x a week during the rest of the year. I use weights as my day off, and more of a source of core strength and stability than muscle building. <br /><br />Most of what I do does not need gym machines, just a stability ball and a range of free weights, but I often find myself at the gym so I dont smell up my dorm room, or house. <br /><br />A usual workout is:<br />10 min (1.25 mile) run, usually on a treadmill.<br />Quick stretch set.<br />10 min on the erg (rowing machine).<br />Longer stretch set.<br />Then circuit of leg press (squats with weights), seated row (lat pull back with weights), plank and variations, pushups, crunches, pull ups.<br />Each I do only 2 or 3x<br />End with 20 min. spin

Consistent weight training is definitely important, and core training especially is the foundation for multisport training in general. Friel one-on-one training always involves core strengthening before multisport becomes a concentration, as it leads to better form, muscle memory in triathlon, nutrition conversion, etc.<br /><br />Hope this helps.
