Stretching! Probably the most neglected component of any amateur training program. We all know the pros do it... But why not us? Is it that we could be drinking coffee instead? Or perhaps that it feels like wasted time because we aren't working up a sweat? The pros do it because those triathletes with greater flexibility and elasticity perform better and are more efficient. Heck, we're all for training right and training less to achieve our goals. So efficiency is high on our priority list. It can also mean the difference between finishing and not. Spend 15mins doing these to be better and Race like a Boss.
Each of these exercise are meant to be static, i.e. no bouncing. Hold each exercise for 30-60secs and take it to a level of discomfort, but not pain. Do each exercise 2-3times. It will take 4-6weeks to see some great benefits, but it's worth it. And seriously, we wouldn't be telling you to do this if we didn't think it was necessary.
