This plan draws on Steve’s 25+ years experience of coaching and racing all triathlon distances. Steve works on a daily basis with all levels of athlete from complete beginners to talented elite, youth, junior, and student athletes. He has coached national youth, junior, student, elite and age group medal winners.
This plan is designed as an 'off season' training schedule with the dedicated youth (13 - 16 years old) triathlete in mind. It includes 9-15 hours of training per week, generally consisting of 3-5 swim sessions per week, 2-3 bike sessions and 3-4 runs as well as strength and conditioning sessions appropriate for young triathletes. It is periodised into 4 x 4 week training blocks, with the 4th week being a lower volume 'recovery' week.
It is expected that the athletes have a background in competitive swimming and swim training and are moving into multisports.
