i’m going to start training for a triathlon on august 10. i’ll be training for 8 weeks. my question is, the training routine i found calls for training for that 5 days a week. Would it be good to throw in upper body days on my off days? I’ve got good recovery, and am considering doing a ME day and a repitition day for my upper body on the off days. would that be too much? would i be better off working on the triathlon, and then after the triathlon’s over going on a strength cycle, followed by a hypertrophy cycle, or working just to maintain my upper body?
any help would be advised. I think bartl did a triathlon, while doing thibs routine but from my understanding his recovery capabilities are really good.
