Triathlon Books at Amazon.com (more reviews available at Amazon.com):
This intensive guide covers the specialized training needs of triatheletes, who must stretch, strengthen, and tone the muscles used in three different sports. It includes the latest research on nutrition; covers racing, rest, and recovery; and outlines the best techniques for increasing endurance without overtraining. Appendices include training-plan worksheets and suggested workouts.
USA Today, 1995
The format allows both elite and beginners to chart their progress and set goals while also reaping the latest advances in physiology and motivation.
|Great Training Guide
(Amazon.com review by a reader March 12, 1998)
I've started reading this. It is very, very technical and hard work but the information is great. I'm sure it will be worth it once I make my way through all the charts and calculations. It has all the information that anyone could ever want on training for the swim, cycling and running events.
|Mark Allen's Total Triathlete||A source of real mental energy for any endurance athletes
(Review by Steve Nicholls from New Zealand, September 15, 1998)
Since the date this book was written Mark Allen has progessed as an athlete to reach even greater glory and to conquer the Hawaiin Ironman, winning the race more than any other man in the 90's. In a sport where any of the top ten competitors are physically capable of winning on the day, I have no doubt that the mental strategies contained in this book have been the distinguishing characteristics between Mark and other athletes. The book deals with a brief description of Marks history in the sport, mainly with his 1987 season and the successes and dissapointments of that year culminating in the Hawaiin Ironman. Unlike the plethora of training material available today, this book deals with how the author motivates himself, focuses, faces his fears, and controls his mental energy in all aspects of his life particularly in triathlon.
If you are serious about getting 100% out of your body and enjoying training and racing in any endurance sport, read this book.
Biophysiology, regimented training, nutrition
(Amazon.com review by Dan Moriarty from Boston, Mass, October 14, 1999)
Dave Scott's interests and college background in biophysiology shows. The book objectively describes the biomechanics of endurance racing and how to train the energy systems for maximum performance. Included is a section on sports nutrition. There is enough material to keep a modern successful triathlete busy reading and referencing. A few items are dated (incorrect). Some sections are overly detailed. Overall it is a self contained guide to success in triathlons.
Good training advice! Technical info you can understand.
(Review by a Female Triathlete from Colorado Springs, February 11, 1998)
This is the training book I've been waiting for. Niles is very good at explaning the physiology and mechanics of multisport training without going overboard on technical jargon. As a recreational triathlete, I devoured this book in two days and can't wait to put some of it into practice. His sample workouts seem too aggressive for beginners or older athletes, but they do demonstrate how to balance training time and level of intensity to optimize performance gains. The book helps me understand what I did wrong during my last racing season and where I can focus for improvement.
Great information source for First Timers!
(Review by a reader from California, USA, February 25, 1999)
I would say that this book can truly motivate those to get started on their first Triatholon with realistic goals in mind. The author gives realistic goals for those who are about to embark on a unfamilur journey into Triatholoning! Everywhere from Training to Technique to stoping for a Hamburger in the middle of a Triatholon. The author is so easy to relate to, and very entertaining! Can't wait to start my first Triatholon!
An experienced competitor offers a complete primer for triathlon training, with specific programs for each event, race training and tactics, race transitions, equipment/technology, injury prevention, and nutrition. 16 illustrations. 65 photos.
Great overview with great references
