West Point Multisport is proud to announce that we will be hosting a Triathlon Lecture Series again during the 2013 spring and summer seasons. Every second Tuesday of the month, from April to August, professional triathletes Andrew Powell and Rachel McBride will be hosting a triathlon lecture series. They will be discussing a different topic each month including special guest speakers with a range of knowledge on various topics. Topics will include, Injury Prevention & Strength Training for Endurance Athletes, Transitions, Training & Race Strategy, Sports Nutrition and Sports Psychology.
PART 1: Injury Prevention & Strength Training for Endurance Athletes
Doing strength training can cause more damage than good if you’re not careful. Just as technique and form is important while swimming, biking and running, it’s also very important when doing strength training and stretching. Strength and conditioning specialist Sean Del Ben will be talking about and demonstrating which strength exercises and stretches are most relevant to endurance athletes to help you get stronger and avoid injuries.
Come early for some light refreshments. Attendees will also go home with a gift from West Point Multisport. (more…)
