The Power: Strength and Conditioning for Triathletes
with JR Rosania,
BS Exercise Science, CSCS, named "America's Top Trainer" (2004) by Men's Journal

Having coached and competed in more than 130 triathlons (10 of these were "Ironman" triathlons!), Rosania knows, and understands, the strength and conditioning needs for triathletes; Rosania shares this wealth of knowledge in this excellent three-part presentation. In Part 1, JR shares the program's components, key workout factors, and program goals. In Part 2, he teaches and demonstrates over 30 exercises designed to improve overall strength, function, and muscular endurance of triathlon-specific muscles with residual benefits of increasing range of motion, muscle tone, power output, and decreasing the chance of injury from training. JR groups the exercises into core and low back exercises, push/pull exercises, functional legs exercises, and rotator cuff exercises. In Part 3, Rosania shows how to appropriately select exercises from each group to create your own quick, concise and highly efficient program designed to be done two or three times weekly. Rosania concludes with a sample of a detailed weekly workout plan. Rosania's program is specifically designed for minimal equipment needs that include: a pair of light and heavy dumbbells, exercise tubing, a 10-inch high bench, a Swiss ball, a medicine ball, and a timer.
