Book Review: Training Plans for Multisport Athletes!

Book Author: Gale Bernhardt

Training Plans for Multisport Athletes is a book which covers training plans for athletes who practice a multitude of endurance disciplines. This includes a number of Triathlon specific plans for all distances!

 The book covers specific training plans for:

• Sprint, Olympic, ½ Ironman and Full Ironman distance
• Duathlon
• Exterra (Mountain Bike / Off Road  Triathlon)
• General Multisport training
• Strength Training for multi-sport athletes
• Swim Workouts

One of the great things about this particular book is that it offers readers both a “’Fast Track’ and ‘Long Term’ training option for each discipline. This means that whether you have a target race; one year or 6 Months away – there’s an option for you. Plans can also be adapted (sensibly) for closer races.

This book offers readers a wealth of practical information, in a very clear and readable format. There’s no need to spend long periods of time sifting through irrelevant information, as everything is readily available and clearly indexed. The author of the book is Gale Bernhardt the former chair of the USA Triathlon National Coaching Commission and no stranger to the mechanics of endurance sports!

This is a book which can offer everyday athletes a clear source of useful training information, which in turn can have a tangible and positive impact on their race day performance.

    Hi, I buy this book last week for the 26 week Ironman plan. Did you read it?

    I don’t understand the swim workout. I don’t see the warm-up and cooldown.

    Do you have some idea about it?
