Core Strength Routine For Triathletes 

Injury prevention is so important for triathletes. As badass endurance cardio machines who swim, bike, run - we should take time to make sure that we are fitting in strength training and to focus on our core. 

 

Coach did not create this workout - she adopted it from Oiselle. It’s been excellent for strengthening our core and preventing common endurance athlete issues and injuries - like hamstring pulls, shoulder strains, and IT band tightness.

 

Here is the quick Dozens Core Routine we recommend & you can do it anywhere without equipment.
