How To Train For Your First Triathlon | An Introduction To Triathlon Training
 
04:42
GTN are going to be bringing you a series of videos to help you train and prepare for your first triathlon! You’ve entered your first event...but where do you start? Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/66 As a minimum, we would recommend 12 weeks to realistically prepare for, and complete a triathlon. That’s not to say that it’s not possible in less time, but to turn up feeling relaxed and confident, then this length of preparation should do the trick. So, we’ll be gearing our series of videos to a 10-12 week training time. As triathletes, you have 3 sports to juggle and this can be quite challenging. If you work out six times in a week, you might swim twice, bike twice, and run twice, but your longest bike ride might be one hour, whereas your swims might last 30 minutes each and your runs, 40 minutes. If you have a background in swimming, you can probably get away with doing a little less on your stronger discipline, and spend a little more time on your weaker disciplines. At least to bring them up to a point that you’re more comfortable with them. You can of course play to your strengths, but that’s for a later date, for now we want to make sure you complete your first triathlon comfortably. Whilst training for your first triathlon, it’s mostly about completion. So following a gradual and sensible plan that keeps you consistent with your training is the key. We like to explain it as if you’re building the foundations. You can’t move on without those foundations, otherwise it will all fall apart. So, whilst it’s tempting, the harder and faster stuff could be more detrimental if you do it before you’re ready to. We’ve got three sports. That means three different sports to buy kit for. But, unless you really want to, there is no need to take out a mortgage for a new bike and other kit for your first triathlon. We’re sure you’ll love the sport, but until you’ve done an event it’s worth holding off on spending a load.

How To Breathe When Swimming | Freestyle Swimming For Beginners
 
03:27
We breathe 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so why is breathing suddenly so difficult when we get in the water? Breathing and sinking legs are the two most common problems that swimmers actually face. So today, we're gonna look at tips of how to make you breathe a lot easier in the water and almost make it as natural as it is when you're on land doing activities. Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/5W Thanks to Club La Santa for the locations used in this shoot. So let's start off from where it can all go really wrong. When you take in that big gulp of air and try and hold onto it, your body really doesn't react to that well. Yeah weirdly, holding your breath actually makes you feel like you're more desperate for air cause the buildup of carbon dioxide in your lungs and blood will trick your mind. So once you've taken that breath, start exhaling as soon as your face is back in the water and there should be a constant stream of bubbles known as trickle breathing. So how do you get that breath in? So when you're swimming you want to stay streamline as possible but then tilt your head just enough that you can get that breath in. Yeah, it's about the timing so when your arm is going just past your head, that's when you should be rotating on the opposite side to breathe. Now the key is to not turn your head too far like Mark said so ideally you just want to look to the side of the pool or at Mark, preferably, not up at the sky. Well that's probably enough of us talking about what you should be doing, let's get on to how you should do it. So we've broken it down into some drills and we're gonna start off by taking the stroke right back to the basics and just the kick but don't panic if you struggle on kick. Just pop some fins on and you'll find this exercise easy. This is a really straightforward one. It's gonna be a side kick with your arms down by your side. If you're swimming along next to the wall I want you just to be facing the wall and then turning your head slightly to breathe and then you can flip round to make sure you do it on the other side coming back. So six kicks, one stroke. You're basically gonna take one stroke and then kick six times on one side and that's to teach you constant breathing on the surface of the water before taking another stroke and switching sides. Well now just starting to build the stroke back up, you can add in one arm. There's quite a few variations of this. You can start off with one arm out in front, you're swimming just say with your right arm breathing to the right side but then to make it a little bit harder put your left arm down by your side, keep swimming with your right, breathing on this side but then when you've got that mastered you can actually rotate to the other side and breathe over there as you would when you're swimming.

How To Run Like A Pro | Running Tips For Triathletes
 
03:32
All triathletes want to look smooth and effortless on the run. Former professional triathlete Mark Threlfall shows you how to run like a pro and shares his key tips to improve your run leg at the end of a triathlon. Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/b When you see a pro triathlete on the run it can be hard to believe they have swum and cycled already. In this video watch former professional triathlete Mark Threlfall as he shows you how to run like a pro and transform your technique so that you look smooth and effortless. - Contact time refers to the amount of time your foot is in contact with the ground. Faster runners generally have a shorter contact time as they are able to transfer power quickly and efficiently. Adding short intervals to your training along with plyometrics can improve this. - Another way to improve your running is to run tall. Aligning head, shoulders, hips and legs keeps you tall and balanced and this helps you to utilise big muscle groups and become a more efficient runner. - Mark's next tip is to focus on foot placement. Rather than focussing on how your foot lands, try focussing on where your foot lands. Make sure not to over stride and aim for your feet to land beneath your hips. - Running with tense shoulders can restrict your breathing and prevent you from running effortlessly. Relax your fingers and drop your shoulders as you run. Follow these tips and learn to run like a pro!

How To Run A Fast 5k With GCN's Dan Lloyd
 
06:34
Mark shows GCN's very own Dan Lloyd how to improve his 5k time by introducing both a speed and tempo session into his weekly training. Whether it is at the end of a triathlon or a stand alone run race, all triathletes can improve their run speed and technique. Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/u All triathletes can improve their running technique, pacing and speed over the 5km distance. Whether it is at the end of a triathlon or a stand alone event such as your local park run, there is always room for improvement. Mark shows GCN's Dan Lloyd how to increase his speed over 5k. After retiring from cycling, Dan got in to running as a way to keep fit that doesn't require a large time commitment. His first Park Run was 21:12 however over a period of 12 months he reduced this to a low 18min 5k. His time has now stagnated and he is therefore looking for new ways to improve. Mark's suggests including specific sessions to increase your speed and threshold levels. - Speed session - include a session each week such as 8 x 1min hard with a 1 minute walking recovery between each. These shorts reps are designed to get the best speed out of yourself however as you progress either increase the duration or number of reps. - Tempo session - include a session each week such as 2 x 3km at tempo (7 out of 10 effort level) with a 3 minute walking recovery between. These efforts are designed to bump up the point at which your body begins to produce lactic acid and your legs begin to burn. - Technique - having the correct technique can shave off a lot of time over a 5k event. Check our 'How To Run Like A Pro' video for more on this. - Pacing - this is key to take your running to the next level as its very common to go off too fast at the beginning of a 5k. Aim to sustain the same pace throughout the race which may mean holding off slightly at the start.

10 Rules You Need To Know Before You First Triathlon | Race Tips For Beginners
 
03:23
You spent all this time training hard, putting in the hours, so the last thing you want to do is get disqualified. Make sure you know the rules ahead of race day. Because it's amazing, even the obvious ones can suddenly slip your mind when you have the added stress of the competition. Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/5- In non-drafting races, you must keep the set distance behind the bike in front of you, but when it comes to the swim, there are no drafting rules. You're allowed to get as close to the swimmer in front and basically, the closer you get, the more advantage you'll have. That leads us on to the drafting rule and it's pretty clear in most races, but make sure you go to the race briefing as sometimes the distance can vary, but something that isn't always as clear and that's the time which you have in order to drop back if you've been overtaken. So say it's a 12 metre drafting race and you have five seconds, an athlete overtakes you, you then have to make it to 12 metres behind them within that five seconds. In the cycling, make sure that when you overtake, you always overtake from the outside. So if you're doing a race in the UK, we'd cycle on the left, that means you overtake on the right. And check the rules, even when overtaking, you quite often have to stay within the white line in the middle. If you're going out for a training ride, or riding with your club, you wouldn't dream of taking a gel out of your pocket, eating it, and then throwing it on the roadside, so the same goes for race day. Make sure you know where the drop zones are and you can leave your litter in these areas. And if you do drop your litter outside of it, it's a violation, and you can quite often be disqualified. In most big races, and definitely in Kona, you'd be hard pressed to find a bike that's not a time-trial bike. So in non-drafting races, there are no rules as to what you can ride. So if you've got a bike sat in your garage, you have no excuse, why not go and do your first triathlon. Staying with the bike, and this was actually a common mistake, even if you do know the rules inside and out, it's the helmet. Make sure when you come into T1, the first thing you do is put your helmet on. You're not allowed to remove your bike until your helmet is securely done up. And the same comes when you're coming back into T2. Run in with your bike. Keep your helmet on until your bike's securely racked and then you can remove your helmet and off you go. Now this rule is an obvious one, but just make sure you know the course markers. So different races will have different colour buoys. Make sure you know on the swim which side you've got to be of them, and the same for the bike and the run. Transition areas are different in every race, so make sure you've checked it out beforehand.

The Catch - How To Swim Front Crawl | Freestyle Swimming Technique
 
06:15
Swimming fast is a combination of fitness and technique, one is about physical hard work the other more mental. We are going to be looking into the catch part of front crawl and showing how you can improve this important part of the stroke. Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/cb You can break the front crawl stroke into phases, the catch, the pull, the exit and the recovery. The stroke starts with the catch where your hand enters the water, the pull is the main underwater phase, the exit is as sounds, when your hand and arm come out of the water then the recovery is your arm coming over the surface of the water and back past your head. Without a good catch the rest of the stroke is going to struggle, getting hold of the water at the front of the stroke is vital for a strong pull. But what exactly is this part of the swim stroke we are talking about. The catch is when your hand enters the water at the front of the stroke; when your movement changes from moving forwards to pulling back and down under your body. The moment when your hand and forearm start to make this new movement is the catch, in theory you are “catching” this new body of water. There are lots of drills you can do to help improve the catch phase of your stroke and these include: - Front scull - Single arm drill - Fist swimming - Scull starts If you enjoyed this video, make sure to give it a thumbs up and share it with your friends. 👍 If you'd like to contribute captions and video info in your language, here's the link - http://gtn.io/ca Watch more on GTN... 📹 5 Swim Toys To Help Improve Your Technique | Swimming Tips For Beginners - http://gtn.io/5SwimToys Music: Epidemic Sound Drive In At Midnight 5 - Gunnar Johnsén Boogieland 7 - Stefan Netsman Contours - Brendon Moeller Photos: © Triathlon / Getty Images The Global Triathlon Network (GTN) is the best triathlon YouTube channel, with videos for anyone who loves triathlon: from seasoned Ironman racers to first-timers – and everyone in between.

Triathlon Training Plan | Kickstart Your Triathlon Training | Week 1-2
 
05:51
The first part of GTN's 12 week triathlon training plan is here to help you train for your first event. Kickstart your training with these tips, sessions and advice on what you should do during your first two weeks of training. Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/70 Swimming - Swimming tends to be the discipline that is most daunting to people, especially so if it’s new to you. Swimming is largely about technique, which is quite hard to figure out on your own. Before you teach yourself any terrible habits, a good option would be to get someone to take a look at your swimming. That can simply be a training partner, a friend, or you could actually join a local swimming or triathlon club that might have a coach. So, given the technical aspect of swimming, it is better to swim little but often to begin with. This will give you the best chance of learning any new skills. Providing you have the time to, a good starting point is to complete 2 swims per week, each of around 30-40 minutes. Cycling - To begin with, all your cycling training should be focussed on building fitness, and your confidence. Cycling is actually a very technical sport, more so than most people realise. So even if you have some cycling experience, it may well be worth spending a little time honing your skills first. Rather than heading out for rides at breakneck speeds, keep it to a conversational pace. This will allow you to build that base level of aerobic fitness and muscular strength, without overdoing it too soon. A good starting point could be two rides per week, at around 60 minutes for each. Now, it’s really important not to increase this too quickly. So we’re going to follow the 10% rule. Never go up in training distance or duration by more than 10% per week. Running - In a similar way to the cycling, all your running should just be at a steady and aerobic pace to begin with. It’s often the one that people get carried away with, and try to run too fast, too soon. And too fast, too often. If you are new to running, imply head out for a walk, and throw in the occasional 30 - 60sec easy run, and then build this up with time. Dependent on your current level of fitness and running history, we would recommend starting out with no more than 30 minute runs. In fact, my personal experience is that the little but often trick also works wonders for running. If time allows, I would recommend doing 2 easy 20-30min runs in your first week, and in the second week just step this up slightly to 30-35mins.

How To Flip Turn | Freestyle Swimming Tips For Beginners
 
05:50
Flip turns, or tumble turns are an essential freestyle swimming how to skill. The flip turn has caused a lot of frustration for many swimmers and triathletes over the years. In this video, we’re going to be explaining the advantages of the flip turn and more importantly, how to do it! Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/dz When learning to flip turn, we need to build our confidence, and for that, we’re going to do it away from any walls. That way you can practice and get used to somersaulting 360 degrees without the worry of colliding with anything. For this we’re going to lie horizontal in the water, or as best as you can. To start the flip movement, just pull forwards ever so slightly to give yourself a little momentum. Then draw your nose and chin towards your chest. By doing this, your head will actually direct your body and begin the rotation. At this point, you should bring your knees into your chest as tight as possible. By being in this compact position it will make the flip a lot easier and quicker. Complete as many of these turns as you need until you feel confident enough to almost do them eyes closed. Once you’re at that point and you’re feeling braver, you can gradually begin moving closer to the wall. You still don’t need to touch the wall, but it’s a great way to increase your spacial awareness and confidence of the skill. Follow along with the rest of this video and with a little practise, you'll be turning like a pro!

4 Ways To Improve Freestyle Kick | Front Crawl Swimming Tips For Triathletes
 
06:11
Without an effective kick, your freestyle stroke will fall apart. It’s crucial not only for the propulsion, but also for the balance and rotation within the water. So, here are Mark's 4 ways to improve your front crawl kick. Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/d7 As triathletes, we’re looking to save our legs for the bike and run sections of the race. So, we’re not necessarily looking for a crazy fast kick, but we are looking to get an effective kick for minimum effort. And most importantly, we don’t want our kick to be slowing us down! The kick should come from the hips with a soft flex through the knee. Make sure you’re not just kicking from the knees and keeping your thighs still. The kick should also follow right through to your toes, meaning a good flexion from the ankles to finish the kick. Remembering this and practising the drills in this video you will improve your kick in no time. 4 ways to improve your front crawl kick include: - Kicking with a board - Improving ankle flexibility - Vertical kicking - Kicking on your side Mark goes into detail on all of these during the video. Which do you think would make the biggest difference to your front crawl kick?

Top Turn Tips – How To Tumble Turn
 
04:07
Find out how to tumble turn or flip turn in this video. The flip turn or tumble turn is an essential skill for every triathlete! It helps swimmers maintain momentum and speed whilst training and can save valuable time during the swim section of a triathlon. Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/G Check out Mark's top turn tips! The tumble turn or flip turn is an important skill for every competitive swimmer and triathlete. It is a fast transition between the lengths that helps keep the momentum and speed up during training and can save valuable seconds in the swim section of a triathlon. Top tips - Build confidence. Get used to rotating in the water. To start the flip movement, draw your chin and knees into your chest. Your head will direct your body to begin rotating. To stop water going up your nose, trickle air out as you turn. Progress by turning close the wall to increase your spacial awareness. - Approach. The T on the bottom of the pool is a useful tool as you approach the wall. You have 1 or 2 strokes as your head passes over the T. - The turn. Finish your final stroke and leave you hand by your side. Initiate the turn and remain compact until your feet meet the wall. Plant your feet side by side against in a squat position. Bring your hands together to allow you to push off in a streamline position. - Exit. Push off whilst rotating so that you are facing the bottom of the pool. Make sure you hold a tight and streamline position whilst breaking into a butterfly kick. Take your first stroke or two and then only then take your first breath. This is not an easy skill to master so practise, practise, practise. Good luck!

GTN's Tempo Run Training Guide | Everything You Need To Know
 
05:00
There is one workout that any endurance runner or triathlete should be doing, and it’s the tempo run! There is a good reason for this, you get the biggest training gains from your time. Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/7e To explain what a tempo run is we, need to get a little sciency. Lactate Threshold is the point where you produce too much lactic acid for your body to flush it away effectively. If you run too fast and go over this point you will start slow down. So, when we talk about ‘tempo’, we’re meaning a pace that is at or near to our lactate threshold. The idea of this, is that running at this pace will gradually bump our threshold up. Simply put, we’re aiming at a pace that is comfortably hard to start with, but over time it will start to bite. In real terms this is the maximum pace you can sustain for around an hour. A good alternative to an hour long run TT is to work out your 10km pace and add around 10-20 seconds per kilometre. If you’re working by heart rate; it’s roughly 80-90% of your maximum HR. And, on a perceived effort scale of 1-10, it’s about a 7 out of 10. In terms of the structure of the session, the intervals tend to be quite long. So today, Mark and Lawrence are doing 2 x 15 minutes at tempo, with 2mins jog recovery between. You can do a tempo run wherever you like, but in our experience it’s a session that you want to dial in to your pace with, so a route and terrain that allows you to crack on without disruptions is best.

How To Increase Your Power On The Bike | 3 Bike Workouts To Make You Faster
 
04:16
It's the beginning of a new season so you've probably already started to look at your diary and plan those goals for the upcoming months. And now, as athletes, we naturally aspire to improve and get faster and faster year on year, but how exactly can we get faster? Yes, finding more power is one sure way of shaving seconds, if not minutes, off your overall race time. Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/5u Thanks to Club La Santa for the locations used in this shoot. So you've probably heard the terms power and watt bandied about, but what exactly is a watt? Well, it's a unit used to measure your power and power is the rate at which you put force down to your pedals. Well, enough of the science, how can we actually find more watts? There's a common misconception that to increase your power you need to get stronger, but that's not the only way you can improve your power. Yeah, so power is just the amount of force that is going through your pedals, but also, to improve power, you can up your cadence. So, how many revolutions per minute that your pedals turn over. So, if you increase your cadence and hold the same force, you'll actually increase your power. Upping your cadence is basically just a quick fix to improve your power, but if you want to improve your power in the long run, I'm afraid it does mean some hard work. And we've put together a couple of sessions that will help you improve on your own power. So a great first session is the 40/20 drill. So that's basically 40 seconds pretty hard at about 120% of your FTP, and then you have 20 seconds real easy steady riding. And then, maybe, do that for five to 10 minutes if it's your first time trying it. And if you do feel okay after that, maybe do another set after it. Well, we've got another session that's at a higher level of intensity, and this basically involves riding at your 100% maximum, so you don't need any FTP, you just ride hard as you can for 60 seconds and then five minutes easy. And that sounds like a lot of rest, but if you've done it properly, you'll need all of those five minutes and then repeat that six times through. So another great way to improve power is a bit of over gearing work. So find yourself a nice, constant gradient, a little bit of an uphill drag, drop it down a few gears and really slow that cadence down. You want to hold this for about five minutes. You want to be roughly 50-60 RPMs so that's one pedal every second. And the idea is, if you know your FTP, to be at about 90% of that. Or, if you're not sure of that, you should struggle to talk a bit like me when you're going up the hill. When you reach the top, ride easy back to the bottom. Repeat this four to six times.

How To Ride On Aerobars | GTN's Step By Step Guide
 
04:58
Aerobars are designed to make you more aerodynamic and therefore faster. If however you are not confident on them or in the wrong position the benefits become questionable. Getting started on aerobars can be difficult, so here is a step by step guide on how to use them. Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/6p How To Start Start out on the turbo. This is a safe environment where balance is not a problem. Get a friend or coach to look at your position here as it’s easy to make any adjustments before you head out on the road. Position Start off by making your position comfortable. There will be plenty of time to get more aero and aggressive with your set up. Raising the stem is one way to make it less of a challenging position and tilting the bars upwards can help too. Gradual Progression Changing any position whether that is in swimming, cycling or running takes time for your body to adjust before it feels “normal”. Make sure you have plenty of time to adapt to the bars before you intend to race on them. Step by Step Start by practising taking one hand off the handlebars. Getting confident indicating and drinking whilst cycling along will set you up nicely. Next just practise placing one hand at a time onto the bars keeping your other firmly over the hood. Hold it for longer each time and make sure to alternate on both sides. Once this feels easy it’s time for both. Start with your preferred side, get comfortable then bring the other hand across. Build It Up Keep the time on the bars fairly short to start with. Practising moving into and out of the position as you need to be confident in reaching back to your brakes efficiently and safely. When you’re happy in your new aero position increase your pace and spend more time in it. How To Fuel/Drink Drinking and eating in the aero position is a more advanced skill. Obviously if you’ve got an aero water bottle between your bars you should just have to locate the straw with your mouth whilst keeping both hands on the bars in front of you. If however you've attached a normal drinks bottle between the bars or your using one behind the saddle or on the down tube then it might be necessary to quickly get out of the aero position to take a drink. Stretching Being on the aero bars puts more strain on your lower back and hamstrings and can tighten up your hip flexors a little more. Therefore make sure you keep on top of a regular stretching and conditioning routine to enable you to find that efficient position.

How To Run Using Heart Rate Zones | Running Training For Triathlon
 
07:00
Running well is not always about training hard, it’s about training smart. Using the heart rate zones in your triathlon training is a great way to tailor your plan. In this video, GTN explain how and when to train using heart rate, and the benefits it can bring to your running. Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/8g ZONE 1 100-120bpm, 50-60% This is super easy, you'll hardly working and might well wonder why it’s even worth running at this pace. It’s a good idea to make this run social, you should feel like you’re out enjoying life and not training as it’s all about recovery and flushing your legs out. ZONE 2 120-140bpm, 60-70% We’re staying in the aerobic zone here, it’s moderately light training but a step up from zone 1. You’re building your aerobic base in this zone, this could be your long 1 hour run with a friend, holding a conversation is a good sign you’re working at the right level. ZONE 3 140-160bpm, 70-80% This is zone is used less commonly when training to HR but it’s the grey area that athletes often slip into as you’re not pushing up your lactate threshold but you’re working too hard to be purely building aerobic base. That said, your coach might set zone 3 work early on in your base training as it will help to build muscular endurance and can make your body more efficient. ZONE 4 160-180bpm, 80-90% This is where the hard work happens and it won’t feel comfortable. This training will improve your speed endurance and lactate tolerance as you’ll be close to, or in, your threshold zone throughout this effort. If you’re targeting sprint or Olympic you'll be running close to your race pace in these sessions. ZONE 5 Over 180 bpm, 90-100% You won’t be able to stay in this zone long as 90-100% of your max is over your lactate threshold and basically all out. Lactic acid will soon catch up with you and prevent your muscles from working in this zone very quickly. Note that in the lag time needed for your heart rate to reach your max, you're legs may well have failed you.

How To Cycle Like A Pro | Cycling Tips For Triathletes
 
04:25
All triathletes can cycle faster, ride more efficiently and look smoother on the bike! Here are Mark and Heather's pro top tips to improve your triathlon bike leg 🚴 Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/14 As well as being strong on the bike, pros also ride smoothly and efficiently. So, to be a pro, its not just about being able to put out a lot of power, its about getting the small things right too. Here are Mark and Heather's pro top tips for a faster bike leg: Bike Position - Being super aggressive isn't always faster, its about what is most comfortable for you and allows you to put out lots of power over a long period of time. Spend a lot of time in this race position to allow to be more comfortable on race day. Training With Data - Being able to monitor power during training and racing is a valuable tool for getting feedback on your effort. Its also good to know when to push harder and to back off. Heart Rate is also a valuable tool to help you ride at the right intensity and you can work out your zones by doing an FTP test. Half Wheeling - This is when one person rides half a wheel in front of another on a group ride. This is very frustrating for and can lose you a lot of cycling friends so don't do it! Fuelling - No pro's will fuel the same on race day as every athlete responds differently so make sure to find something that works for you. However, all pros will hydrate and fuel regularly throughout a race. Be smart about when and where you take this fuel onboard. Flying Mount/Dismount - This may not be strictly cycling but is still very important for triathletes. This can really make the difference in a short distance event where every second counts. The mount is a skip and hop onto the saddle whilst the dismount takes a little pre planning and stepping over the saddle before hopping off.

Top 6 Swim Cap Hacks | Wear Your Swim Cap Like A Pro
 
02:34
It might sound obvious but you'll be surprised at the method some people use to try and put on a swimming hat. Now, I've still got childhood memories of my mother trying to scrape my hair into a latex hat and it usually ended in tears and that was until I learned how to do it myself. New Swim Cap? If you've bought a brand new swimming cap, you'll find that it sticks to itself, your head and your hair. Now, the best way to avoid this is add a little talcum powder on the inside and the out. Give it a rub and then it'll be nice and comfortable and ready to wear. Tip For Long Hair It's down to personal preference but I like to just tie my hair in a bun at the back of my head and then I put my hat on from the back to the front. Now, you can try going from the front to the back but you're usually left with bits sticking out the bottom. Race Day Cap The race organisers will usually provide hats that must be worn throughout the race, so don't go swapping it before your event as a colour will have been assigned specifically to your swim wave and don't panic if your race hat splits or gets a hole as the organisers will usually have spares. Wear Your Cap Correctly You'd be surprised that the variation in position of caps on some swimmers heads. Now, most hats have a line running down the centre and the idea is you want that going from the front to the back of your head, not across because let's face it, we don't really want to add any extra drag. Now, another thing to bear in mind is making sure your hat's far enough down over your forehead because there's nothing worse than it gradually creeping up and taking your googles off with it when it falls off in a race. Colour Choice When buying a new hat, consider choosing a bright colour for open-water swimming, so you can be seen easily if you're training alone and it's important to be clearly visible to boats using the same water and in the worst case scenario if you do get into trouble, you'll be found more easily. Double Up Now, another little extra tip if you're heading to your first race and you want to look like you know what you're doing, put your usual hat on first and your goggles just as you would do normally and then put the race cap over the top. This protects your goggles and stops them getting knocked off by other swimmers in a mass start.

The Pull - How To Swim Front Crawl | Freestyle Swimming Technique
 
07:46
The pull phase of the front crawl stroke is the propulsive phase - when the hand and arm are pulling against the water. Get this part of the stroke right, and you can considerably transform your technique; making it both easier and quicker. Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/fR After entering our hand into the water first, we should aim to catch by applying pressure down onto the water. This maintains our body position in the water and begins to load the arms ready for the pull phase. With a perfect catch, you should see the elbow above the hand as the hands presses down and through the water. As the hand starts to come underneath your head, then this is the start of the PULL PHASE. There are different teachings on this pull phase, but the one that I recommend for symmetry, balance and efficiency - is a direct pull straight underneath the body. This prevents any movement or snaking from side-to-side. To do this effectively, you should have a slight bend in the elbow. Somewhere between 90-120 degrees. As demonstrated earlier, this really allows maximum force production. If you’re in a pool with a line on the bottom, as I am now...and you are fortunate enough to have a lane to yourself, or you’re in a squad session...then you can use this line to help teach this movement. Imagine the line is a ladder, and you have to pull yourself up this ladder. Each hand entry and pull should track over this line.

10 Triathlon Bucket List Races You Must Do
 
06:54
The first official Triathlon took place in the early 1970s, and now there are a number of iconic races that should be on everyone's bucket list. And the great thing is, you don't need to qualify for most of them. Anyone can do them. At number one, we have the Norseman Xtreme Triathlon tipped as one of the toughest triathlons out there, starting from Eodfjord in Norway. And in a similar way to Escape from Alcatraz, athletes start off the back of a ferry, plunging into freezing cold fjord waters to complete a 3.8 km swim. Then, they start a 180 km bike through the scenic Norwegian terrain, and then they finish with a 42.2 km run to the top of Mount Gaustatoppen, at 1,800 metres above sea level. At number two, we have the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon. Now, this race starts with you jumping off the ferry near to Alcatraz island, into the icy cold waters of San Francisco Bay, and then swimming the 1.5 miles back to shore as if you are an escaping prisoner. And to make this event really epic, you're jumping into 12 degree Celsius water, choppy conditions and even strong currents. But the fun doesn't stop there, because you exit the swim onto a hilly, 18 mile bike course and then it finishes with an eight mile run, including the Equinox Sand Ladder of 400 steps up the cliff. However, the event has become so popular, organisers have had to resort to a lottery and qualification process to fill the slots, capped at 2,000 entries. At number three, we have Challenge Roth. Now, this historic course is considered to be the fastest, iron distance course in the world, with the men's record currently standing at seven hours and 35 minutes set by Jan Frodeno in 2016. Whilst the women's record stands at eight hours and eighteen minutes set by Chrissie Wellington in 2011. It's a 3.8 km swim in the canal, started with a cannon and hot air balloons, and then a 180 km bike over a spectator-packed course. And you even get to split the spectators as you climb the Solar hill. And then it finishes with a fast 42.2 km run. This race has a great festival atmosphere and it concludes with a giant firework display. Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/3E 1.

How To Adapt Your Road Bike To A Triathlon Bike | Ride Faster In Your Next Triathlon
 
06:36
Do you wish you had an aerodynamic triathlon bike to have alongside your regular road bike? In this video, Heather delves into the aerodynamic adaptions that you can easily make to your road bike to turn it into a triathlon bike and help you go faster in your next event. Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/84 In association with Profile Design. Having both a triathlon bike alongside a regular road bike, is a luxury that many of us can’t afford. However, there is so much you can do to your road bike to get similar benefits you’d experience with a triathlon specific bike. Thanks to our partners at Profile Design, we’re going to be delving into those aerodynamic alterations that you can easily make to your road bike to help you go faster in your next triathlon. The adaptions that you can make to your road bike include: - Adding clip on aerobars - Adjusting you handlebar height - Adjusting your saddle position - Adding a front hydration - Adding a top tube bag - Thinking about where you have your bottle cages These are a few simple changes, all of which add up and together can end up making a significant difference to your aerodynamics on race day! Play around with the set up until you find what works for you. And don’t forget, there’s no point in being aero if you can only hold that position for a few minutes so make sure you are still comfortable.

How To Warm Up Before Your Run | Get The Most Out Of Your Running Workout
 
03:00
Before I start any type of training, I always make sure that my body is fully prepared for the activity ahead. It can be a little bit tempting to cut your warmup short, especially when you're tight for time, but you will get far more out of your training session if you're thoroughly warm and loosened up. The key part to a warmup is getting warm, so there's no harm in starting with a few extra layers and you can always take them off as you go. It's a bit chilly today, so I've borrowed this beanie from the GTN guys. Well, to get us started, I'm gonna warm up by going into a steady jog and then building through it as I go. I'm back from the jog, and I'm nice and warm. Now it's important to do some dynamic stretches. So start off, I'm just gonna do some leg swings. Forwards and backwards. Make sure you find something to hold onto so you can really focus on getting the action properly rather than losing your balance. Lamppost will do, or find a friend. The idea is opening up your hips, getting them ready to be able to run. Now onto full body twists. Great for rotation and opening up your hips. It's important that one foot goes in front of the other and then you alternate, and don't forget you've always gotta go back in the other direction. High skipping is all about the height. You can use your arms to help, and you want to get your knees and hips to 90 degrees, and this will make sure those glutes start firing. Now this one involves a little bit of coordination. Start with your arms at the top, you're gonna swing one forwards, one backwards, and then the other way. And if you're feeling really coordinated, you can add in a clap at the top. It's another brilliant exercise for rotation and getting your body fully warmed up. On to side steps. Now it's important to use your arms as well because you want the blood flowing to the whole of your body. And the key for this is getting as much height as it is distance. And don't forget, you need to go in both directions as well. Now before you start this, just check behind you that it's safe to go. And then, the idea is running backwards really firing those glutes. But it'll also help open up the front of your hips. We're almost there, it's just high knees again. It's about reactivity, speed, and keeping a really nice upright posture. Staying with speed and reactivity, this helps open up your hips, but really getting your feet reacting off the ground. You don't need to move forwards fast, just need to use your legs fast. Now if you followed this warmup, you will now be fired up and ready to nail that session. But just remember, when you finish, a cool down is just as important.

Gear Ratios Explained For Triathlon | Choosing The Right Cassette, Chainrings & Shifters
 
06:18
The gearing you have on your bike is such an important factor when it comes to improving your performance and your enjoyment, yet it’s possibly one of the most commonly forgotten things. So, let’s take a look at the gearing you should choose for a triathlon? Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/6L In association with Shimano. Gears really do have a huge impact on our riding. Gears that are too low, or too easy, may leave you spinning out, wishing you had a couple of harder gears. Whilst, gears that are too high, may bring you to a grinding halt on a steep climb. Firstly you have the chainset. Simply put the lower the number of teeth on the chainrings the easier the gear. So, there are a few common options with these. There is the standard, with a 53t outer ring, and a 39t inner ring. You also have the semi-compact, that has slightly easier gears, with a 52t outer ring, and a 36t inner ring. Then you have the compact, that is even easier again, with a 50t outer ring, and 34t inner ring. The other area you can customise your gear ratios is with your cassette. It sort of allows you to fine tune and optimise your gear selection and you’re not short of options either. Shimano cassettes come in a number of ratios including 11-25T, 11-28T, 11-30T, 11-32T, 12-25T, 14-28T! Whereas a larger number on the chainset means harder gears, on the cassette a larger number actually means easier gears. So, for example, I have quite a nice range on my bike as it goes from 11 teeth on the smallest sprocket, up to 30 teeth on the largest. So, it’s very well suited to a hilly terrain because I have a range up to 30 teeth. There are so many options when it comes to gear ratios but we hope this video helped you to understand what is available.

How To Run A Fast Half Marathon With GCN's Dan Lloyd
 
08:48
You’ve done a 5km, a 10km, and perhaps you’ve already done a Half Marathon, but now you’re looking to do a FAST Half Marathon! Here is GTN's guide to running a fast half marathon with the help of Dan Lloyd from our friends at the Global Cycling Network. Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/7q Training - For a half marathon, threshold and long runs should take a greater importance in your training programme. The threshold run helps the body adapt to clearing lactic acid more efficiently, whilst the long run helps to increase aerobic capacity. Pacing - You can monitor your time through each km. Some people like to write the splits down on their hand and know what time they need to go through 5km, 10km etc. Depending on the time you’re doing, the races often have pacers running too. Normally with a big banner or flag so that you can spot them. Fuelling - As most races take place in the morning, a big carb-heavy breakfast probably isn’t the best idea. It's a good idea to fuel well in the couple of days before and the evening before. Not bowls and bowls of carbs, but a good regular size meal to stock those fuel levels up. And to avoid any issues on the run, we normally suggest trying to eat your breakfast around 2.5-3hrs before the race start. You may also want to take a gel around the half way or 10 mile mark. It helps as an incentive and energy for that final push. It’s personal preference so if you don't like gels, you may want to take on another fast releasing carb source. Warm Up - As a warm up, we suggest heading off for a short 10-20 minute jog. Its a good idea to finish with a few strides of around 50-60 meters building to a fast pace.

Side stitch, side pain, side cramp? Why do you get this annoying pain whilst running? And more importantly, how do you solve it and prevent it returning in the future? Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/8k In the medical world, the pain is referred to as Exercise Related Transient Abdominal Pain, ETAP. However, you might have heard it called a side stitch, side ache, cramp or even a sticker. There are varying theories as to what causes this side pain including: - Eating and drinking too much - Too many sit ups - Poor bike position - Lopsided gait/breathing on one side The one thing these seem to have in common is the diaphragm as it’s thought that the reduction in blood flow to the region for whatever reason produces the stitch pain. To get some tips on how to combat this side stitch we speak to two experts: - Fiona Lathander, Sports Nutritionist at Team Bath - Barry Edwards, Sports Physiotherapist at Team Bath Both kindly share there tips on how to prevent getting a stitch and how to deal with it when you do!

How To Train With A Heart Rate Monitor | Running Tips For Triathletes
 
03:17
You could get more out of every run by using heart rate! Here are GTN's tips on how to effectively use HR in your triathlon running training. Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/1v Using heart rate (HR) for triathlon training is nothing new, but most people do not know how to use it effectively in training. With technology advances, we can take our HR continuously using a chest strap sensor and a watch. HR is a clear indicator of effort so it's important that you work to your zones. Zones relate to a specific percentage of your max HR. Each of these zones has a particular training effect and you can therefore train more effectively. To calculate your zones, complete a 30 minute running time trial at race pave. Take your average HR for the final 20 minutes and this is your lactate threshold heart rate that you can input into many online calculators. Now you know what range to stay in get the most out of every session.

5 Swim Toys To Help Improve Your Technique | Swimming Tips For Beginners
 
03:39
We all know swimming can get a bit tedious from time to time. Trawling up and down that black line. Yeah, as triathletes, we are often quite guilty of just sticking to front crawl and not really changing it up much, but there's still other ways in which you can spice up your training and using toys is one of them. You're probably wondering what on earth we're talking about, but I'm afraid we don't actually mean jumping in the pool with a large inflatable and messing about. These are actually toys and tools that can help you improve your swimming technique. Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/5K Thanks to Club La Santa for the locations used in this shoot. Now there's a wide selection of different toys that you can get, so we've just picked a selection that you can add into your training to make it a bit more interesting. So this is quite a common pull toy and it's called a pull buoy and basically, you put this between your legs and it raises your hips slightly out of the water. Yeah, it's great if you are a swimmer who struggles with sinking hips. It basically does a similar action to what a wetsuit would do in open water, but it also helps to single out your arms, so you're really working just on your upper body. You can't really use your legs when you've got that. You might have heard people refer to the pull paddle combo. And so using a pull buoy and a set of paddles, you're basically gonna isolate the front end of your stroke. Yeah, if you're using large paddles like Mark and I, then it's very much about power, working on your strength and if you wanna feel fast, you can just take the pull buoy out, keep the paddles on, and use your legs and it'll give you a great feel of the water. But if you wanna work more on technique, there are actually other paddles available on the market. Slightly smaller ones that'll just really reiterate getting that perfect stroke. Now I know we've already mentioned the kick-board, but as its name says, it's specifically designed for kick. If you're got a board like this, you can just place your fingers through the holes and the whole idea is to be comfortable and relaxed, resting your forearms on top so you can concentrate purely on your kick. And you don't have to bury your face into the water either. Keep your head up so that you can breaths, most importantly, and then it's social as well, you can chat to the person next to ya. But really you're doing it so you can isolate your leg kick. Now another toy, slightly less usual is the snorkel and if you look closely, you'll notice that it's different to the snorkel you'd use on holiday. This one goes down the centre of your face. So you can concentrate on keeping your head completely still when you're swimming. Now a lot of swimmers struggle with the breathing. It's the movement of the head that upsets the stroke. But if you've got this, you can breathe as much as you want and consistently and then you're purely focusing on what your arm and legs are doing.

How To Train At Sweet Spot For Cycling | Triathlon Training Explained
 
05:55
You may have used sweet spot workouts in your training before, but do you know what it’s doing? Or, how to use it to it’s best advantage? Mark answers these questions and gives you 3 sweet spot workouts to try! Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/dg In association with Training Peaks - http://gtn.io/TrainingPeaks Sweet Spot - as the name suggests, this refers to a specific training intensity that aims to deliver the ultimate ‘bang for your buck’, where the training effort and volume are ideally structured for maximum physiological gains. This makes the idea of sweet spot training particularly appealing to triathletes with limited time for training. But to work out this sweet spot intensity we need to know our Functional Threshold Power, or FTP for short. This is our best sustained effort for 60 minutes, essentially our Lactate Threshold, the point at which lactate begins to accumulate in the blood faster than it can be flushed out. So, knowing our FTP, we can work out our training zones. Our sweet spot is the area just above tempo and just below threshold. It kind of crosses into the upper Z3 and lower end of Z4, when using the Dr Andy Coggan 7 Zone system. It’s defined as being between 84% to 94% of our FTP or 75% to 85% of our maximum heart rate. If you’re riding by feel, your sweet spot is ‘moderately hard’ - it’s a tough but sustainable tempo just short of your upper threshold. You might be able to hold a short conversation with your riding mates, but to be honest, you’ll probably want to save your breath for the effort. The beauty of sweet spot training is that it has the same physiologically benefits and promotes the same adaptations as doing threshold, but it’s far less taxing on the body you can do more of it and recovery quicker from it.

GTN's Guide To Shin Splints | Pain, Prevention & Treatment
 
04:03
Sore shins are the most frustrating pain. But what are shin splints? And how do you know if you've got them? And more importantly, how do you fix them? Well, here are eight points on how to get rid of your shin splints and stop them coming back. Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/6b Shin splints are a pretty common running injury, and frustratingly, one that I experienced a lot throughout my career. Normally you find them on the inside front part of your shin and they're a result of overloading of the muscles and the bones. And they lead to inflammation and micro-tears in that area. Shin pain down the front fleshy part of your shin, down here is actually less common. It's only seen in about 10% of cases. But it's a sign of exertional compartment syndrome. And this can actually worsen under load or during exercise. But if you do have pain in a really small specific area, that it hurts to touch and only in that place, especially down the front bony part of your shin, then it could be a sign of a stress fracture. So go and see a professional as soon as you can. Obviously, no one wants them, but if you do have sore shins, then you need to know how to effectively heal them and stop them reoccurring. So first on the list, and probably one that you won't want to hear is rest. Your bone and surrounding area needs time to heal and recover. So if that means reducing your running or maybe even having no running, it will reduce the symptoms and help with the healing process. An ice pack, or in this case, a packet of frozen peas can help speed up the relief as it encourages reduction of the inflammation between your muscles and your bones. So just place it on the area that's sore. And anti-inflammatories can also do a similar job. Compression socks will also help with inflammation and muscle recovery, post-run session, by increasing the blood flow. And wearing socks during your run, as well, can reduce the microtrauma of the muscles and the fascia. Just make sure that you've got a pair that fit correctly for their purpose. And don't forget to stretch out those tight muscles. Check your shoes. Make sure that they've got enough cushioning and that they're not worn out. And also that they're providing the right type of support for your foot and running gate. Correcting a collapsing arch can make a positive difference straightaway whether that's just from getting new orthotics or changing your running shoes. If, however, you want a more detailed approach, then I would recommend going to see a podiatrist and you can have orthotics specifically made for your own needs. Just make sure if you are using them, that you put them in a neutral running shoe. Work on engaging and strengthening your glutes because this will have a knock-on effect on your foot control and the position which your foot makes contact with the ground.

And a lot of people, when you say catch, they're like what do you mean by catch. Basically, it is the front end of your stroke. You want to anchor it, you want to catch the water and you want to feel the water. And the main thing is really to be more efficient, so the more water your can catch, the easier you're going to get through the water and the faster you're going to move through it. My next tip is structured swim sessions. I think if you get in and you haven't got a plan and you're just floating up and down aimlessly, one, it's going to be really boring and you're also not going to get a lot from it. So if you've got a plan when you get in, you're going to get tonnes more from the session, and it's actually going to be way more enjoyable. Up next, I want to talk about arm rate, which is, basically, your cadence with your stroke. And for Triathlon in open water, a high cadence stroke rate often works a lot better, and I'm very lucky in that, even when I was a poor swimmer, I had quite a high cadence stroke rate. Well, if you compare me to my other half, Reese, he had quite a long, slow stroke rate, and he was always much faster than me in the pool, but when we went over to open water, he often struggled. So he's actually had to adapt his stroke rate now to a high cadence, especially for open water. Particularly, if it's really choppy in the water, it actually helps a lot more to have high cadence because you don't have to fight with the waves. Then it's bilateral breathing, which basically means being able to breath to both sides. And when I was a swimmer, I actually only breathed to the right hand side because I was a lot faster like that. And when I moved into triathlon, I actually found I had a lot of issues and some injuries from bike and run because I was so imbalanced from only rotating to that direction. So, in that respect, I would definitely say you should bilaterally breathe, but also in open water, you need to see what is going on on both sides of you. So yeah, I'd definitely say get in the pool and breathe to both sides. My final tip is speed work, and you may think this sounds pretty crazy because the distance I'm doing is an Iron Man, and it's very much endurance, but I definitely wouldn't neglect the speed work, you want to make sure you've got that initial speed to break out at the start, and then if somebody's going to surge in the swim, you want to make sure you've got that speed to be able to react.

How To Choose Your First Triathlon Event
 
06:38
Combining swim, bike and run into one event, a triathlon, is becoming more and more popular. With so many choices on offer, here is how to choose your first event! Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/64 When working out what distance to enter as your first triathlon, it is important to consider your current fitness, and the time scale you have to train for this event. A shorter distance triathlon is easier to complete as your first. However, if you are more suited to endurance, there is nothing to say you can't complete a longer distance event straight away. It is easy to get drawn into the big, well known events for your first race and that is fine if its what gets you motivated but there are many smaller events out there. These events are just as fun, and often cheaper. Many newcomers will opt for the small local races to test the water and therefore doesn't put the same amount of pressure on the day. Either way, it's important to choose a triathlon that excites you! If you are someone who finds the thought of open water swimming daunting then don’t worry, you can give yourself a more pleasant introduction to the sport and search for a pool based triathlon for your first event. There are plenty of triathlons that start in the comfort of a heated pool. You’ll have the added security of a lane rope to grab if you need to and a wall to push off at the end of each length. Plus all you need is a swim or tri suit which will help make the transition easier too. Do a little research on the race profile before signing up. If you know you struggle on the hills, perhaps avoid a super hilly course for your very first race. The same goes for a technical twisty turny type course, try to find something smooth and flowing if you’re not so confident with your bike handling skills. The terrain is not limited to just the bike, check out the run course for the same reasons with regards to the hills but also the surface. The bike course has to be on asphalt unless a cross triathlon where as the running can be cross country, track, road or a mix of all. It is worth checking this out so you can tailor your training a little and have appropriate footwear. Doing your first race or any race is made that bit more enjoyable if you have friends there to support or to compete alongside. Maybe ask what event people in your club are doing, seeing a familiar face will automatically help with pre race nerves and the post race celebrations.

Check out GTN's tips on how to train like a pro in the pool... - Structured sessions - Each session should have a focus. Including one aerobic, one speed and one threshold session per week will lead to a greater improvement than steady swimming. - Technical Analysis - Get a friend or coach to film you and someone to analyse your stroke will help prevent forming bad habits. Regular drills will help reinforce good technique, especially if done at the end of a session. - Breathing - practise breathing bilaterally help keep your stroke symmetrical however it is okay to breathe every two to prevent swimming hypoxic. - Open Water Skills - Practise open water skills such as sighting, swimming in a group and swimming without touching the wall. - Drafting - This is a skill that needs practising and can be done in the pool with familiar swimmers.
