For anyone that can truly commit to being in shape

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
There's a book called Core Performance by Mark Verstegen. It's a pretty all-encompassing program that's refreshingly up to date (includes both foam rolling and active-isolated stretching, for example). What I like about it is that he includes every facet for anyone looking to obtain the caliber of a professional athlete: strength, power, elasticity, endurance, prehab, regeneration, flexibility, joint function--the list goes on. Some of you with different goals may have to tailor the program a bit, but it's worth picking up just for the prehab and core training areas. The guy knows his shit. You'd be surprised how out of shape you are when you start this program.

lol, I'm never surprised by how out of shape I am. Thanks for the recommendation though. Core is one of those nagging things I'm perennially putting off. The off-season starts for me in a couple of weeks (after a marathon to round out the year), so it's a perfect time for me to start these exercises again. CTGuy, What triathlon are you planning for? Depending on my future work schedule, I'd like to do the California Half-Ironman again next year. Sigh, April is a lot sooner than I'd like to think.
