Training camps are great (and fun!) ways to increase fitness and build up towards a strong triathlon racing season. But there are several important do's and don'ts you must pay attention to if you want to make the camp a successful one from which you come out the other side stronger.

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-The objectives of a training camp

-How much volume can and should you do on a training camp

-How much intensity can and should you do on a training camp

-Training tips for swimming, cycling, and running when on a training camp

-Nutrition, hydration, workout and post-workout fuelling, and recovery tips for a training camp
