Triathlon Anatomy-2nd Edition
BookSee what it takes to maximize multisport strength, power, speed, and endurance.
Let Triathlon Anatomy, Second Edition, prepare you for the starting line and show you how to reach your personal best by increasing muscular strength and optimizing the efficiency of every movement.
Triathlon Anatomy features 74 of the most effective multisport exercises with step-by-step descriptions and full-color anatomical illustrations highlighting the muscles in action. But you’ll see much more than the exercises—you’ll also see the results.

You’ll learn how to modify exercises to target specific areas, reduce muscle tension, and minimize common injuries. Best of all, you’ll learn how to put it all together to develop a training program based on your individual needs and goals.

I have used a different book in this series to plan off an season exercise program for cycling. Transitioning to triathlon, this book greatly aided my development of both off season training as well as in season exercises to target my weak areas. Each major muscle group is explained to include what tri activities utilizes those muscles.
I highly recommend this book.
