These 9 swim, bike and run workouts are very effective, and I find myself going back to them time and time again. But since they're less well-known than your typical "6 x 3 minutes" or "20 minute tempo run", you've probably never heard of most of them, let alone used them in your training. Feel free to steal them and incorporate them into your program!

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN:
-"CSS rest cutdown", "Mixed pace progression" and "Open water beach start" workouts for swimming
-"Criss-cross", "Multiset VO2max", and "Power sprint" workouts for cycling
-"Squires long run", "Hill sprints", and "Hudson 1-2-3-2-1 Fartlek" for running.
