Cut out the Sugar!

Cleaning up your diet starts with scouring your kitsch for items laced with added sweeteners. A 2013 report in the American Journal of Public Health followed nearly 5,000 men and women over 30 years and found that participants’ calorie intake from added sugars increased by about 50 percent during  that time period. As sugar consumption increased, so did waist measurements. “Sweeteners deliver empty calories and encourage overeating,”  says Chris Mohr, Ph.D., R.D. a sports nutritionist in Louisville, “both of which lead to weight gain.”

Spring Clean ->
Scan ingredients on packaged foods and choose those with little if any added sweeteners. Replace sugary breakfast cereals, flared yogurts, and reduced-fat peanut butter (which often swaps fat for sugar) with steel-cut oats, plain yogurt, and natural nut butter.

The Morning Battle!

The morning battle?

The alarm goes off, you roll-over and stare at the blinking digital numbers on the clock wondering what day it is… it is Monday morning. The weekend is over, most good hang out places are closed and your daily routine begins. Wednesday, the second longest day of the week, most of the times your long-run day, it is the peak of your training during the week. No other day is as long as this day. However, incorporating specific strength training can allow you to go over the hump during the middle of the week. Strength training does more than just prevent injury. Even in a multi-hour endurance event, explosive power is key for performance, and lifting is one of the best ways to improve.

Translate to the sport
Sport-specific strength training such as swimming with paddles or doing big-gear climbs on the bike help translate power gains in the gym back to triathlon, even though these workouts this means, unfortunately, there is no one plan that is perfect for everybody. However, regardless of their focus, triathletes should always strive to incorporate whole body exercises into their strength training, in order to get the biggest benefits from the work they are putting in.
