The info-graphic below is from an ad for Triathlon Research at http://www.triathlonresearch.org. Even though it’s an ad, there are some great take-aways.

#1: “4…..Champions focus on core strength…”  I have always known this to be true but have never practiced it til this summer when I decided I would finally change-up my training routine.  Now I do some crunches and leg-lifts after every weight training session (three per week) and after regular runs.

The impact is incredible! All triathlon power truly does come from the core. I run faster. I bike faster with greater endurance. And, my swim is more efficient with a lower SWOLF.
