Boulder, CO, USA — December, 2008 — VeloPress is pleased to announce the publication of the first strength training book for triathletes. Strength Training for Triathletes by Dr. Patrick Hagerman is a groundbreaking book, the first to integrate strength training into the triathlete's training regimen. Now triathletes who are reaching their highest potential for cardiovascular fitness have a new way to gain performance, without spending more time on the road or in the water. Strength Training for Triathletes is now available in the UK at good bookshops or direct from www.cordee.co.uk.
Every triathlete wants to be faster, and most know that strength training should be a part of their program. In Strength Training for Triathletes, fitness phenom Dr. Patrick Hagerman explains how small changes in muscle strength add up to big race results. For triathletes, the benefits of strength training are many, from increased stability in the water and on the bike to a faster metabolism. Put simply: stronger muscles can work longer, making strength training indispensable to endurance athletes.
Clearly organised by discipline (swim, bike, run) and by muscle group, Strength Training for Triathletes helps athletes quickly find the best exercise for their unique training needs. Every exercise is accompanied by full-colour art, making the routines inviting and easy to follow.
