Announcing a new Meetup for The Baltimore Area Triathlon Club Meetup!
What: Strength Training for Endurance Athletes
When: Friday, February 26, 2010 7:00 PM
1134 York Rd., suite 101
Lutherville-Timonium, MD 21093
It's been rather rough for biking and running outside lately and I'm sure just about everyone is getting tired of their bike trainers and treadmills, I know I am. So I'm happy to say that the topic for our February meeting doesn't revolve around biking or running. Instead, the topic is Strength Training for Endurance Athletes, something that, when done properly in a training program, will help reduce the likelihood of injury and result in huge gains come race day. And now is a good time for most triathletes to start strength training if they aren't already!
Krista Schultz, BATC member and Performance Testing Director of TotalPerformance, Inc. will be our speaker. Believe me when I say Krista knows what she's doing! You can learn more about Krista at www.totalperformanceinc.net. So, come dressed appropriately to participate as Krista demonstrates various strength training exercises as well as proper form and technique. Please RSVP so I can give Krista an estimated number of attendees.
Date: Friday, Feb.26th
Location: ProFit, 1134 York Rd., suite 101, Lutherville, MD 21093
(3 story white office building on the first floor next to 695.)
Topic Summary: Strength Training for Endurance Athletes
Muscles provide the movement for swimming, biking and running. Triathletes cannot
maximize their power output without first developing sufficient strength. By incorporating a
progressive strength-training program, an athlete will not only get stronger but also go faster
while reducing the likelihood of injury. This seminar will tell you how to properly incorporate
strength training into your training.
Also, don't forget to renew your BATC Membership! Online registration is open up on Lin-Mark. Don't forget that you will need to set up an EZE ID if you don't already have one. https://www.lin-mark.us/page.asp?prmName=eventcalendar
For those that are interested, there's a good possibility of an informal social gathering after the meeting, place TBD.
