1. Avoid injury that can occur due to the repetitive training of the same muscle groups. By strengthening the core and opposing muscle groups we can establish balance and stability that will support your performance muscles to their full potential.
2. Increase power that will increase your speed. By adding resistance training (extra stress) to your performance muscle groups you can increase the force applied at the same effort level. Additional power applied to the road, the pedal stroke, or the water will allow you to run, bike, and swim faster!
3. Increase your endurance. The wear and tear from road impact while running or continuous cycling or swimming will break down muscle tissue. By increasing your overall strength, your body will withstand the tiring effects much longer during training and racing. Being durable under stress allows you to hold form and speed to produce new personal bests!
