As triathletes, we swim, bike, and run. So it can be really hard to get a lift in. Right? It can be a lot to do, along with taking care of the family, the house, etc. So I wanted to help you out so that you can’t make excuses for why you can’t do a lift workout or body weight workout at home.

Every Friday in February I will give you a specific workout to do at home, in your backyard, or in front of your TV!!!

This Week’s FAVORITE Strength Workout for Triathletes, At Home!

Tabata Intervals:

8 minutes of work: :20 seconds on/:10 seconds off (rest)

Here is the DL of Tabata Intervals: 

  • Tabata intervals can work with swimming, cycling, running, and bodyweight exercises (burpees, sit-ups, air squats, push-ups, etc.)
  • The purpose of Tabata is to go max effort for 20 seconds, and rest the 10. You should NOT be able to do numerous Tabata intervals in your workout. One and done.

You can do so many different combos at home with this workout, getting full body workouts every week. Check out Strength Training for Triathletes Lingo and you will see a TON of different movements that you can do at home!

Like what you are seeing? Share the goods with friends and other triathletes, and let’s work out together! I want to see photos on Instagram; tag me, #CoachJenRulon or #RulonRacing, and let me know how you are ROCKING your strength training at home.
