6 Exercises to Mix Up Your Triathlon Training

In many ways, preparing for a triathlon is akin to cross-training. You constantly vary the activity, intensity and workout.

However, if you get too attached to the three disciplines, you may end up losing your edge for competition.

Cross-training can help triathletes add variety to their weekly routine, prevent injuries and keep their mind and body fresh for race day. It can also be a handy tool for injured triathletes and can serve as an important part of recovery.

In short, cross-training keeps the daily grind interesting and athletes on track. That can pay back dividends come race day.
