Lifesaving Tire Changing Method for Triathletes

Why Amateur Triathletes Shouldn’t Train Like the Pros

I often discuss with athletes the concept of their potential within the context of the life they lead. Many triathletes never reach their potential; it’s difficult to manage all of the training hours, it’s not possible to be present and focused enough to train effectively, or the emphasis on training leads to feeling distracted and overwhelmed in other areas of life. Even as athletes try to cram the training into daily and weekly schedules filled with other important commitments, the results become more elusive. Amateur triathletes as well as many coaches have traditionally turned to top-level pros for inspiration, studied their approach, and mimicked how they train. Although there are certainly many things to learn about training and racing from the professionals, it’s a mistake to attempt to emulate a professional approach at the amateur level, especially within the context of a busy life. 

Professional triathletes train many more hours every week than you can, and they can put more time, effort, and resources toward training and recovery because triathlon is essentially their full-time job. Many coaches suggest that amateur triathletes try to execute a similar training regimen summarily diluted to accommodate far fewer hours of training every week. For a busy amateur limited both by athletic ability and by other commitments, a training plan that imitates a pro athlete’s preparation develops bad habits rather than performance. If an athlete is never able to effectively execute the requirements of the training plan, it creates a platform for failure, opens the door for many other follow-up mistakes, and ultimately invites overload and exhaustion. In many ways, professional athletes are the barometer for performance. 

They are our lab subjects for learning how different training stimuli affect the body. I’ve coached athletes through the transition from amateur to pro. It entails a massive shift in mindset that illustrates why the pro approach isn’t a good fit for amateur athletes.

It’s my recommendation that you begin immediately learning how to use a heart rate monitor and train according HEART RATE TRAINING ZONES using the chart below, also known as the Metabolic Training System. Let’s take a quick minute go over the training zones used in this training program. Zone 1 training is very low intensity ‘easy does it’. It’s used primarily for ‘active recovery’ days, after hard blocks of training in which the goal is to stay loose, keep the metabolism primed and to burn a few calories. Much of the training done in this program and in other novice level training programs will be at Zone 2 intensity to help you ‘build your base’. 

More advanced level training programs, you’ll be doing even MORE work in that Zone 3 range. Lifetimeendurance.com – Page 1 – Introduction and Overview of the Life Time Tri Sprint Training Program HOW TO ESTABLISH YOUR TRAINING ZONES an approximate lactate threshold heart rate from which you can then derive target zones using the chart seen below. You’ll train once or twice per day, and participate in each sport 2-3 times each week. It’s important to ‘listen to your body’, and watch for signs of over reaching or over training! If you feel like you’re not recovering from workouts, take an extra rest day! 

When it comes to running, it’s especially important to monitor your gauges. Lifetimeendurance.com – Page 2 – Introduction and Overview of the Life Time Tri Sprint Training Program NUTRITION Another important area of consideration when training for any event, especially endurance training for a triathlon, is your nutrition. If you ever have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly! We’d love to hear about your training experience as well as your results so please be sure to stay in touch. Each / Z2 RACE DAY!
