3 Triathlon Myths BUSTED!

1. I don’t need to strength train. Strength training, especially for older athletes is super valuable for performance and preventing common injuries. Ok, we understand that time crunched athletes may well ignore strength training for more time spent on the swim, bike...

Carbohydrate myths and facts uncovered.

I bloody love these memes but it does highlight ONE thing. There are a lot of anti carbohydrate memes out there. So lets turn the table and start showing some love for whole food carbohydrates -------- Carbohydrates get a good old kicking from the Keto crew and main...

Why you should learn how to RPE like a pro

Lest talk Data Max Power, Average Power, NP Power, Average Speed, Cadence, HR… All that DATA is cool but what happens in a race when it all SWITCHES OFF?? I know a few athletes who would have a minor break down if that happened in a race. By minor I mean Chernobyl!...

Don’t be average be powerful

I often hear friends say thing like this. * What’s your average speed? * What do you average on a Long Ride? I can see why athletes would ask those questions but does it mean anything? Now I’m not saying having a fast average speed is bad, In-fact it’s a real...

Does performance nutrition really matter?

Got caught up in a debate on book face all about keto and fat adaption the other day. Now I love to chat. I’ll happily get involved when it comes geeking out on performance nutrition, the when’s, the whys and should you even do’s… BUT it all got a bit face palmy when...

How to pace your run like a PRO

How to effectively get to your best racing weight.

I’ve had this conversation with a number of athletes this week. It’s clear that most athletes just choose a random figure and say “I want to get to that weight”. The problem is that’s NOT the right way to think about it and I can guarantee it’s NOT the right number....

It’s been a mental week for Tri Force. We’ve had a lot of clients racing, competing, prepping for A races and myself doing the Long Course Weekend in Tenby. I won’t lie to you, I almost lost my sense of humor after a 9 hour car journey that should have taken closer to...

Chocolate, bacon and biceps.

My Face Book feed keeps getting bombarded by adverts from some good looking ripped dude with massive biceps trying to convince me that lemons, apple cider vinegar and ketogenic diets will help me magically melt body fat and get healthier. It’s funny really because...
