CFL Tri Club – Weekend Update

Hello team,

I have been checking the weather and it looks like it is going to be a tough weekend. Also, there won’t be any swimming on Friday morning due to a SWIM MEET. Therefore, I encourage you to swim Lucky’s Lake. I will not be at Lucky’s; however, I will post a swim workout.

Therefore, here are the changes on the schedule:

Keep up the good work and let me know if you have any questions.

Very happy to announce, that I am officially a Level 3 Coach!

Breakthrough Training Week ( Feb 21 – 27, 2022)

Hello Team,

UCF Research Parkway

This week is going to be an amazing as it is a ‘Breakthrough Training Week.” Time to break the glass ceiling and show me what you got. In other words:

  • If I ask you to ‘Go Hard’, go hard! I am not asking you to sprint, hold a sustainable hard effort.
  • If I ask you to ‘Go Easy’, go easy! Go Easy so you can allow your body to recover! Listen to your body!

Allow yourself to become the best version of you!

Benefits of BCAA – During Training? (ReFuel / Repair / Recover)

Faster recovery is key to better results. You won’t get any better if you don’t allow your body to repair itself in between workouts. At times we are so focused on getting our next workout that we forget the key component of repairing our muscles to perform at the level we want them to. When that happens, your recovery becomes an after thought… when it is supposed to be your primary focus. I encourage athlete to take BCAA during and post training. BCAA have been clinically shown to support muscle recovery, repair and growth.

There are many brands out there; however, I personally use XTEND amino acids. They always have sales on their protein as well. THIS DOESN’T SUBSTITUTE YOUR ELECTROLYTE DRINK OR NUTRITION.

2022 Breakthrough Training Camp – This Week

This week, Tri Peak Athlete will be hosting the 2022 Breakthrough Training Camp here in Orlando, FL. We have some great coaches presenting and athletes attending as well.
