Triathletes #1 mistake

The past 14 years I have tested many things out there, such as: High volume training and low intensity, high intensity and low volume, etc. The truth is they all can work if is done correctly. Over those years I notice 1 mistake that triathletes do that can lead to a complete disaster.


Triathlon is one sport with three different disciplines but for some reason some athletes see the sport as three different sports.This is the biggest mistake triathletes can do and that can lead to several issues such as:

  • Over training (under recovering)
  • Burned out
  • Injuries
  • Lack of performance

The reality is triathlon does not have to be a complex sport, in fact triathlon can be very simple, if you see triathlon as 1 sport with three disciplines. This is actually one of the first things I talk in my book.

Train Smart, Plain and Simple,
