from increased stability in the water and on the bike to a faster metabolism.

training indispensable to endurance athletes.
The best feature I think is the way the book is laid out. It's
clearly organized by discipline (swim, bike, run) and by muscle group,
This book helps any athlete quickly find the best exercise
for their unique training needs. Every exercise is accompanied by full-color
art, making the routines easy and inviting to follow.
