During the camp you will get individual advice on swim, bike and run techniques, while applying the Trisutto training methods to improve your performance. No two camps are the same but a typical camp will include 18-22 hours of training across all three disciplines.
Aspects that are covered during the camp are:
Training philosophy – learn Trisutto principles of periodisation, the training mix, psychology + physiology, athlete development and the use of races within these considerations.
Swim training – techniques for the individual athlete, use of swim tools, stroke correction.
Bike training – positioning, technique for the individual athlete, bicycle and component selection, skills, tools.
Run training – technique for the individual athlete, shoe choice, use of run tools (hills, track, treadmill, road).
Triathlon – integration of swim, bike and run into the one training approach.
Stretching – massage, warm up and warm downs.
Injuries – prevention, treatment, athlete mentality and training around or through them.
Race execution – strategy for the individual athlete and season goals.
Usually, we meet at 07:45 am at the pool for a swim session.
Following the swim, and depending on weather, we will either a cycling or run session (or both). Between, or after session, we will then meet to discuss training relevant topics.
Cycling: Whether you take your time trial or road bike in the mountains, it is up to you. On the time trial bike, it is always a competition-specific training. Much more important, however, is the right gear ratio - otherwise, it will be tough on the mountains. Even strong cyclists should bring a gear ratio of 39/28. If you have a bike time of 6 hours in an Ironman, then we recommend a compact crank.
Swimming: We swim in a heated 25m indoor pool. Please bring Pull buoy and Paddles with you.
Running: We run on the track, on good tar or gravel roads. Technically savvy runners can also do challenging trail runs in the Swiss Alps.
