Book Details

Triathlons are becoming increasingly popular as thousands of athletes compete in more than 200 races globally each season. Every one of these athletes requires quality training information and experienced coaching advice. Drawing on his 20 years of coaching experience, Mario Schmidt-Wendling provides the best training information for ambitious triathletes competing in Olympic- to Ironman-distance triathlons, making Triathlon Success a must-have, practical guide. This book does not offer generally formulated training plans, but rather considers an athlete’s individual situation, such as their performance level, which means the athlete is given the most important basics to be able to make the right decisions for his or her own training. Trainers will also find the book useful as both their work and the most important aspects of training theory for the long-distance triathlon are highlighted and explained. In addition to the extensive material on training and competition, the athlete will find relevant information on equipment, nutrition, and even how to prevent those typical mistakes made during training in all three disciplines. All of the training content is enriched by numerous practical examples, and the provided test procedures help triathletes diagnose their own progress. Useful information on topics such as injuries, illness, and training and competing in the heat, as well as a sample 16-week training plan round out this must-have training guide.
