Coaches Top Tip
- Try hard or perform well? Which is preferred for your brain surgeon? It's the same for athletes. Train for performance, not effort.
- In the spring you may begin to feel bullet-proof. Resist the temptation to leap tall buildings. Patience!
- The harder your hard workouts, the easier your easy ones.
- Want to be excellent? Everyone has the desire to excel; few have the will to make it happen.
- You can't make a tired muscle stronger. You can only improve its endurance.
- Being 100% healthy is more important than being 100% fit. Don't force it in the early stages of injury or illness. Back off.
- For the experienced athlete, intensity, not volume, is the key.
- I discover who I am when I race.
- Training your muscles is much more important than training your heart.
- Training is science. Racing is art.
- True champions win, but they also know how to lose.
- Swimmers, golfers and tennis players practice skills daily. Too many runners and cyclists just run and ride.
- Everyone has the will to win. It's the will to work that makes winners.
- The closer to your A-priority race the less important volume becomes and the more important intensity & duration become.
- Focus on the process, not the outcome.
- The 2 main elements of recovery are sleep and nutrition. Neglect either and recovery is prolonged.
- Whether you're a pro or novice, only 3 things can be changed in workouts: frequency (how often), intensity (how hard), duration (how long).
- When you come into top form you experience physical changes that border on astonishing.
- Do you accept setbacks as steps on the way to success or as signs you simply can't do it?
- Discipline: how important to you are nutrition, sleep, periodization, goal setting, sport skills, attitude, health, strength?
- What does it take to be mentally tough for sport? Dedication. Discipline. Confidence. Perseverance.
- The most common mistake athletes make? Not enough rest. Rest is when fitness happens.
- No dreams, no goals and no priorities means permanent mediocrity.
- The bigger your athletic goals, the more your lifestyle must be focused on achieving them.
- Most athletes don't get how important movement economy is. Most would go faster from improved economy than from improved VO2max.
- As you approach race day your training should become more like the race. This is the foundation of periodization.
- The common denominator for all of the best athletes I have known is a 'can-do' attitude.
- Four words are the keys to success for top performers: Just a little more.
- Good athletes don't become good by training randomly. You need a plan to achieve your goals and purpose for each workout.
- Do the least amount of most specific training at appropriate times that produces the desired results. All else is overtraining.
- I see many goals that are actually wishes - vague desires for grand achievements that are poorly defined. Clarity is needed for success.
- Recovery is just as important as a hard workout. Train hard. Rest harder.
- Racing is how I find out who I am, what my limits are, and how I can overcome them.
- Best way to improve running? Frequency. Most common cause of running injuries? Frequency.
- A hard workout only creates the potential for fitness. It's realized when you allow for recovery.
- Peak athletic success takes months and years, not hours and days. Be patient and train consistently.
- High frequency improves sport skill efficiency. High duration does the opposite.
- Consistent and moderate training are the keys to success in endurance sport.
- To run or climb faster remove excess weight, increase muscular power, or, preferably, both. It's hard to be fast dragging an anchor.
- 1 pound of excess fat costs roughly 1.5 watts on a climb and 2 seconds per mile when running a 10k.
- The fastest way to raise your VO2max is to lose excess weight.
- If you haven't changed your mind on how you train in 2 years, check your pulse. You may be dead.
- In order to find your limits, it is sometimes necessary to exceed them. But rarely.
Joe Friel Scottsdale Laying the Foundations Testing Camp
Tri Dynamic are proud to present the first in our series of exclusive Triathlon Training Camps with the legendary Tri Coach and author of the Triathletes Training Bible, Joe Friel.
This 'personal' camp is designed specifically for triathletes to learn from Joe Friel on a very high attention camp limited to 20 places. If you are doing an early season Iron distance race next year, this camp would be perfect for you. The time to be making changes to your training and technique is now. This ensures that you have adequate time to make physical adaptations based on Joe Friel and his team's recommendations in order to be faster and stronger next season. There will also be some exclusive testing sessions and analysis with some of the best Physical Therapists in the US right now, Nathan Koch & Wolfgang Oswald of Endurance Rehabilitation. They work with Olympians, professional Ironman triathletes and cyclists. You will also get a professional bike fit from Bicycle Ranch's Chris Pulleyn. Here is what Joe Friel has said about this Camp:‘This fall - October 22-29, 2010 - I'm presenting a triathlon camp in Scottsdale, Arizona where I spend my winters. This is not your standard swim-bike-run camp. It focuses on exactly what I do with the athletes I coach at the start of their winter training. Each athlete is tested for VO2max and physiological metrics. Each also has a physical assessment by a physical therapist. I also have a bike fit done for them by a professional fitter. We work on their speed skills in all three sports using video analysis. And finally we spend a lot of time discussing the keys to their success involving mental skills, nutrition, understanding the training program they will follow and much more. By the time the camp is done I always feel as if we are a great deal closer to achieving the athlete's goals. I think you'll feel that way, also.' **Please note that there is a special price for TrainingBible Coaching Athletes. You will be asked to confirm the name of your TBC Coach.
Scottsdale in late October is beautiful. Temperatures are typically in the 70s and 80s (20-30C) with gentle breezes and blue skies. You'll stay at a quality local resort.
