Strength Training for Triathletes: Series I – Stabilizing Muscles

There are numerous reasons to add strength training to your off season plan. The biggest reason is to prevent injury. Is a stronger athlete a faster athlete? That’s a debate for another time. But when pros as decorated as Ironman World Champion Chris McCormack say that they “recently added weights to the equation” its at least worth considering.

Listed below is the first of three series of strength training exercise we’ll be pushing out to the public in the month to come. This group of movements focuses on stabilizing muscles. Those are muscles used to hold your pelvis and shoulders in place during exercise. They may not make you look better at the beach, but when done right could prevent injury.
