If you're an endurance athlete in your 30's, 40's or above, you've no doubt experienced the sobering realization we all face after our 20's: performance plateaus (or worse, measurable declines) seem an inevitable part of aging.
You've probably noticed that no matter how many miles you complete week after week, your times just aren't what they once were, and your fitness isn't what it was in your 20's.
Fortunately, you can reverse this insidious trend. Along with reversing many physical aspects of aging, you can increase muscular power, delay fatigue, prevent injury and boost energy stores for late-race performance gains.
How can you do this?
With WEIGHT TRAINING.
You might be surprised to learn this, but the benefits of the right weight training program for endurance athletes can't be overstated.
In fact, Mark Allen (who ESPN named "The Greatest Endurance Athlete of All Time" for his 6 Ironman wins and his 21 consecutive victories over 2 seasons) credits weight training for much of his career success, particularly after age 35.
Today, Mark is a world-class endurance coach, and has said the following about weight training:
"...a well-executed strength-training program can allow you to carve up to 25 percent out of your swim, bike and run volume while improving performance and enjoying better race-day results."
Sounds GREAT, right?
The problem is, a weight training program for an endurance athlete won't look like a strength athlete's program, which has different objectives, so where do you turn for a well-designed program tailored specifically for endurance athletes?
Well, one way is simply to hire a coach or buy coaching programs, but even that doesn't ensure your weight training program, which is just one part of an endurance athlete's overall training protocol, will be optimal or even adequate.
And then there's the expense. Coaching costs typically average hundreds of dollars a month, and there's no guarantee that this will include strength training.
That's why we enlisted the help of some of endurance sports' most respected authorities on weight training, and developed a program that, for a limited time, will be available for instant download:
