What to wear:
Women may wear swimsuits or trisuits as desired. Men MUST have a snug fitting swim suit, tri shorts or a tri suit. No boardshorts, surf shorts or baggie trunks! These types of shorts cause drag and make learning much more difficult than it needs to be.
Please do not wear wetsuits or any type of suit that provides flotation or drag.
Why? most triathletes struggle with balance and sinking hips, especially men due to a denser lower half and different distribution of body fat. Board shorts/baggies cause drag only around the hips making the problem worse. Learning how your body interacts with the water is vital and difficult enough without the added “baggage” of baggy trunks. Set any modesty aside and invest in a durable pair of swim shorts such as “jammers” or tri shorts.
Required: Must-have for this course
#1 Effortless Endurance Workshop manual. Included with the cost of your course. Download this and study & practice prior to your clinic.
#2 Finis Tempo Trainer/Tempo Trainer Pro – optional purchase. Your coach will have enough of these for each swimmer to use, but you may wish to purchase your own.
This is a small digital metronome adjustable to 1/100th of a second. It is slightly thicker than a half-dollar and slips under your swim cap. For participants that purchase a tempo trainer, I will have specific tempo trainer sets during the last 2 sessions of bootcamp. I will have only a handful of tempo trainers for people to try & buy during the sessions.
Optional Equipment for this course
Finis Zoomers (Blue) If your kick is not very propulsive, these will help you perform many of the skating drills we will cover. The blue fins are designed for fitness and long distance swimmers. It is a short fin that aids in momentum without creating too much fatigue in the legs.
Optional purchases for pre or post course study:
