Reviews - What do customers think about The Triathlete's Training Bible (2nd Edition)?
A great starting point Sep 19, 2008
When I first began doing triathlons there were not many resources available. I was excited to try the sport but I had no idea where to begin. This book provided me with coverage on all topics. How to prepare for the swim and make my stroke efficient. Drills for the bike and run and even tips on gear, clothing and transitions. It was truly a savior. Now there are communities like [...] and online coaching services like trainingpeaks but if you're old school and just want to pick up a book, this is a great place to start
Positive Review Sep 8, 2008
I would recommend this book to anyone looking to train for multisport competition. It has giving me a guide for preparing for my 1st event coming up in May of 09.
Read his original sources instead Aug 2, 2008
This is the Wal-Mart of Triathlon training guides. There is a representative in every department of training, but it does not contain enough of the depth of knowledge and detail that you would like from a "Bible" to be truly satisfying. Throughout the book you will find diluted versions of other works and training books/products (Pose Method, Total Immersion, Paleo Diet, etc). I've found that reading the original sources is much more satisfying for that craving of knowledge. If you are really looking to gain in depth knowledge about the skills, training, and diet necessary for triathlon I would recommend reading the following books as either a supplement or replacement for this book:
1. Dr. Nichloas Romanov's Pose Method of Running (and DVD) 2. Daniel's Running Formula 3. Triathlon Swimming Made Easy: The Total Immersion Way for Anyone to Master Open-Water Swimming 4. Easy Freestyle DVD (also by Total Immersion) 5. Bicycling Magazine's Complete Book of Road Cycling Skills 6. The Paleo Diet
AWSOME Jul 28, 2008
One word: AWSOME.
Get it as fast as you can. Everything is finally available for even the non-pro.
Great book for someone he needs to learn all they can about triathlons. May 12, 2008
This is a great book for both beginnners and intermediate triathletes. The book contains the basics, as well as advanced techniques, of training. The concept of "periodization" was especially helful for me. It is easy to read and the author fully explains everything. It is does not matter whether you train for sprint events or Iron Man level events, the concepts still apply.
