Weeks 1 to 8

Weight trainining.

Guidelines:
That's right. Don't forget your strength training. It's time to lift two days this week. No specific time limit and no weight requirements. But, you need to work your arms, back and legs. Build those muscles so you can add power and speed to your Run, Bike and Swim.
