Build Your Own Triathlon! Four Killer Multisport Workouts

Build Your Own Triathlon! Four Killer Multisport Workouts | Multisport News | Scoop.it

"As the popularity of triathlons grows among women, there's something that's impossible to ignore: These multisport females have amazing figures.

 

When you consider their disciplines, it's not that shocking, since swimming, biking, and running engage almost every major muscle group, but in different ways. Swimming hits your arms, back, shoulders, and core. Cycling mainly works your quads, while running targets your hamstrings. The result: You get the arms of a swimmer, the legs of a cyclist, and the leanness of a runner—all in one super-sexy package." http://bbcom.me/16gswRx

Over 40? Rethink Your Next Triathlon

Over 40? Rethink Your Next Triathlon | Multisport News | Scoop.it

For men competing in triathlons past the age of 40, the grueling slog to the finish line could be their last.

 

As the average age of competitors in endurance sports rises, a spate of deaths during races or intense workouts highlights the risks of excessive strain on the heart through vigorous exercise in middle age.

 

Among the recent casualties: American Michael McClintock, senior managing director of Macquarie Group Ltd and a triathlete, who died at age 55 of cardiac arrest earlier this month after training.

 

The men's 40-to-60-year age bracket - often referred to as middle aged men in Lycra, or Mamils - now holds 32 per cent of the membership in USA Triathlon, the sport's official governing body in the US.
