TRX for Triathletes Workout

As a follow up to the TRX Workout for Runners, Runner's World UK partnered up again with TRX Master Trainer Elizabeth Banks and designed this TRX workout for triathletes. 

 

With the triathlon season very much upon us, this is the time to complement those hours in the pool, on the bike and on the road by strengthening key muscle groups to help maintain a solid training regime and injury free season. This TRX Suspension Trainer workout has been specifically designed to help you do just that. 

 

It can also help:

  • Mobilize the thoracic spine (upper back), which is key for swimming and running
  • Fire up the core through the active plank position to replicate the body's position during the swim
  • Fire up the glutes, which are often neglected by triathletes but also important for all three disciplines
  • Improve shoulder mobility, vital for the swim

 

If you're a beginner, perform each exercise for 30 seconds and repeat the workout a second time through. Intermediates should perform each exercise for 45 seconds for 3-4 rounds and advanced TRX users should perform each movement for 60 seconds for 4-5 rounds.
