Strength & Conditioning for Triathlon Coaches

This one day workshop has been developed in conjunction with English Institute of Sport practitioner’s Stephen Breisner and Ian Pyper who are the lead Strength & Conditioning coaches for the Great Britain Triathlon Team.

Upon completion of the workshop coaches will be able to prepare, deliver and review safe and effective strength and conditioning (S&C) sessions within a non-weighted (body weight only exercises) environment. This workshop will not extend a coaches remit to allow them to coach using weighted Olympic style lifting exercises and equipment.

Workshop content includes:

  • S&C Programing Principles.
  • Effective preparation and warm up.
  • Individual needs analysis.
  • Core, upper and lower body exercises and how to coach these effectively.

Additionally, learners will also have access to an online resource bank with further technical information and over 40 conditioning videos to support learning and understanding of strength and conditioning in triathlon

Pre-requisites

  • Level 1 Triathlon Coach.   Level 1 coaches will only be qualified as an Assistant Coach
