HASH(0x8b207b64) out of 5 stars Science and experience presented practically 22 Aug. 2008
By Michael Hagen - Published on
Format: Paperback
"Championship Triathlon Training" is an excellent book. It is very thorough, covering all the essential aspects of training and racing for high-level triathlon. It also contains some real nuggets on technique and training. The information on barefoot running and nasal breathing are particularly interesting and thought provoking. Recent physiological research is combined with lessons learned from working with elite athletes to provide extremely practical advice. The discussion of how to schedule intense workouts to provide adequate recovery is extremely valuable especially in conjunction with the discussion of combination training. Perhaps the most valuable component is on using performance testing to establish target workloads. I've competed in triathlon for 25 years and coached for the last several years. My copy of "Championship Triathlon Training" is already well thumbed and occupies a prominent spot on my reference shelf.

HASH(0x8c6441a4) out of 5 stars Great book 16 Dec. 2008
By Gil Hanson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This presentation of information is very simple and understandable. I don't know if it is easier to understand because I've read several other triathlon books or because this one is superior. I've been doing triathlons 4 years, completing two iron distance triathlons, but I would still consider myself a beginner as I've always been self-coached and never achieved the results I've been looking for. I plan to follow the training schedule from this book from sprint straight through to ironman training programs, to prepare to compete in Silverman in November.

I find the nose-breathing technique interesting and may try it. Also, the running techique of focusing the stride on the ball of the foot is interesting. I don't think there is anything new under the sun as far as training for triathlons and some of the recommendations I will not follow to a "T", but it is an excellent addition to the training arsenal.

I haven't been effective at following previous training programs because I invariably trained for times above my skill level. With this added maturity, this book looks like a perfect fit to be more successful during races. I won't know until after November.

Excellent book. It was very helpful in preparing me for my first triathlon. Turns out I ended up competing against the author, George Dallam, in my age group. He beat me of course.

HASH(0x8bd130c0) out of 5 stars Champion Triathlon Training 22 Sept. 2008
By Kevin D. Kozlowski - Published on
Format: Paperback
I don't agree with a lot of reviews I have seen about this book. I found the training concepts to be at a beginners level and the training plans to be inadequate for sucessful elite performance. Maybe a good book for a beginner, but not for an athlete looking to excell
