Course Information

The British Triathlon Strength & Conditioning workshop has been adapted for blended learning.

There will be two 75 minute online sessions with a BTF tutor followed by a morning practical session at Sport Wales, Cardiff.

Developed in conjunction with British Triathlon Strength & Conditioning coaches, the workshop focuses on the following areas:

  • The Needs Analysis Process
  • Programming Principles
  • How to deliver effective preparation and warm up activities
  • Lower body, core conditioning and upper body exercises

The workshop content has been designed to allow coaches to deliver S&C sessions within a club environment with minimal or no equipment. The workshop does not cover Olympic or power lifting.

In addition to the workshop, coaches will be able to access the British Triathlon S&C coaching resource via the Learning Hub. This includes a large suite of videos of S&C exercises as well as the resources used to deliver the workshop.
