     Title: Training Program 

Triathlon training program



Training programs for triathlons need to incorporate its three key sports (swimming, cycling and running). By training in multi-sports tri-athletes develop both all round muscle toning and efficient cardio vascular - heart and lung capabilities.

This is achieved by breaking down training sessions to enable you to get the most out of your workout, but not to be training over tired or sore muscles, as this will result in injury and poor performance.
