Strength Training

I finally incorporated a structured strength program into my training cycle this time around. I've been doing more research and I found a couple of GREAT articles that cover the basics of strength training for endurance athletes.

Matt Fitzgerald Active article about incorporating strength training.

Another good article about Periodization of strength training from Joe Friel, who is of course a big name in triathlon these days.

Both of them cover the physiological reasons for weights (keeping/building muscle), periodization in relation to your training program, as well as giving exercises specific to triathlon and even the individual sports.

Let me know what you think.
