Free Webinar: Racing Weight: Performance Weight Management for Triathletes
Topic: Racing Weight: Performance Weight Management for Triathletes
The most successful triathletes are also the leanest triathletes, and getting leaner is one of the surest ways to improve in the sport of triathlon. Most triathletes know this, yet more than half of all triathletes report struggling to reach their optimal racing weight. The Racing Weight system is a six-point program based on the latest science and the best practices of elite endurance athletes that can help any triathlete overcome the common obstacles to getting leaner.
This webinar will explain why and how to practice each of these steps:
- Improving your diet quality
- Managing your appetite
- Balancing your energy sources
- Timing your nutrition
- Monitoring your progress
- Training for racing weight
