As athletes age, their bodies change and, consequently, their training needs to evolve. Athletes can offset the physical deterioration caused by aging and continue to perform at a high level through specific training interventions.
The primary goal of our SENIOR (55+) training plans is to prepare you in training for a successful race finish by ensuring a gradual increase in volume and intensity with recovery weeks every other week to facilitate recovery and reduce risk of injury. You have the option for either 1 day or 2 days off per week. Each week typically contains 3x swims, 3x bikes, 3x runs plus 1 BRICK run. Strength training is optional but recommended.
