USA Triathlon Webinar: Strength Training for the Female Multisport Endurance Athlete

On Wednesday  July 17 I will conduct this webinar in partnership with USA Triathlon.  Please visit HERE for the registration link.  

Topic: Strength Training for the Female Multisport Endurance Athlete

Coaches and athletes have many variables to consider in designing strength training programs for endurance athletes.  One critical variable is gender.  With the female demographic being one of the fastest growing segments in multisport, coaches must understand the differences between female and male athletes to optimize training programs.  Self-coached female athletes can also learn principles to help translate programs that are often generically targeted for the male strength athlete. 

In this webinar, Allan Phillips will cover the unique strength demands for female triathletes and distill the key principles for this specialized population.  Among the topics to be covered:

  • Unique physiological qualities of the female endurance athlete
  • Getting strong without getting bulky
  • Biomechanical differences between males and females
  • Pelvic floor: one of the leading contemporary topics in female strength and rehabilitation    
  • The psychology of training females in the gym
  • Strength for sport AND life
