Product Description


“As a collegiate hockey player and rower, I didn’t think of core training when I moved into [performing] triathlons. Only when I suffered through several injuries that laid me up for almost two years, did I realize that core strength would not only make me faster, but also improve my body’s ability to prevent and heal injury. I got started late on the Tri Power program last year, but it still enabled me to make Honorable Mention All American in 2006 and, given training splits on the bike, track, and pool, I’m confident I’ll be making All American this year–and race more with far fewer injuries.”
– Charles Macintosh

“As I get older, the line between training and injury becomes more difficult to straddle. I have discovered that strength training is the key to keep me strong and injury-free during the long triathlon season. Not only are there physical benefits, the psychological lift it gives me when I need to push through fatigue and out of my comfort zone is immeasurable.”

“After a week packed with running and cycling, most of my Monday mornings are intimately spent unknotting my legs on the foam roller. Like a best friend with a sadistic edge, it hurts as good as a hard sprint session. But it’s the best selfcare for my ITB, glutes, and hamstrings (that get as tight as a taught derailleur cable). Tri Power details a terrific and easy-to-follow myofacial release program that leaves me feeling loose and flexible and ready for the next go ‘round.”

“I have followed a strength training program in the off-season for the past three years. Triathlons, particularly cycling in my case, tend to create muscle imbalances that I believe lead to an increased risk of injury. I want to compete in this sport for a long time, and a structured strength training program allows me to achieve a sense of muscular balance and improve my performance by addressing weaknesses first. Tri Power not only provides me with the opportunity to assess and evaluate my strength program, but it also provides a structured program that compliments traditional strength programming with non-traditional training protocols such as balance training, movement prep, and corrective flexibility training.”
– Robert Auston, amateur triathlete and cyclist

“Tri Power protocols address the necessary components of injury prevention. Lack of neuromuscular coordination in traditional core training, namely effective core training, should be done in a challenging environment that incorporates balance and stability. Inefficient motor patterns can develop in static movement patterns, such as crunches. Periodization through phased training as used in Tri Power is important for [your] body, particularly the nervous and muscular systems…. Traditionally endurance-related sports such as running, cycling, and triathlons have not [before] incorporated consistent power training in program design, for either misplaced safety or lack of knowledge… [It] increases your running form through greater nervous system recruitment.”

“Having worked with hundreds of Olympic, national, and world class athletes, it is amazing to appreciate how finely attuned they are to small changes in their body. If we multiply the number of repetitions, as in the sport of Triathlon, times the abnormal forces acting on the body it is easy to understand how this could set up a soft tissue disaster. Tri Power addresses muscular imbalances, along with addressing the soft tissue changes, through a dynamic strength program designed for the everyday athlete. Athletes who perform repetitive activities, such as triathletes, subject their musculoskeletal and myofascial systems to higher risk for injury. This repetition of movement creates continual biomechanical stress which for many athletes leads to breakdown of these soft tissue structures producing scar tissue.”

HASH(0xa4dcf804) out of 5 stars Not just for Triathlons.....for all activities in life. Oct. 4 2007
By Write Reviews - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am new this year to the Triathlon world and this book has helped me in my training more than anything besides hiring a personal coach. The programs are easy to follow and take approx 30 minutes to complete each day. You can choose whatever exercise you want to tailor it to your needs. I was never into stretching until I started this "guide". Now I understand why stretching and core strength are important in a Triathlete as well as in life. I give it 4 stars only due to the fact that it took me a while to figure out which exercise was what. Other than that if your looking to prepare for a Triathlon or even just want to get fit in approx 30 min a day, then this book will help you.

HASH(0xa4dcfc84) out of 5 stars Must have April 2 2009
By Jason Hanleybrown - Published on
Format: Paperback
So I'm 37 now and competed in triathlons for 12 years before taking a few years off due to 3 small children (well, my wife actually had them...). I started using this book because i had gained some weight and I was worried about injury. Not only did this book help me get mileage back up injury free - but I'm going faster than I ever have before. MOST IMPORTANTLY: If you follow the book, it doesn't take a ton of time. As someone who is time constrained - I can do this program in the evenings at home. 2x/week it takes 20 min. 3x/week it takes 5-10 min. For the past 12 weeks I was running only (no swimming except occassional cross train). I finished my half marathon and am now going into core tri-training. I got back in the pool this week and WAS FASTER than when I was swimming 3x/week - I believe because of the strength/core training. MUST HAVE!!

HASH(0xa4dd5234) out of 5 stars TriPower Oct. 31 2008
By Dale Smith - Published on
Format: Paperback
My husband and I are in our 50's and have worked with many of the exercises in TriPower. The information in this book has helped us learn more about the importance of stretching. We don't participate in triathlons but we exercise on a daily basis. TriPower has helped us tone, strengthen and build muscle. Stretching is a very big part of exercising and many people do not take the proper time to stretch before and after exercising. TriPower explains each exercise and teaches the correct way to perform it.
