Day 7 and Day 8 – Triathlon Training Program

Day 7 – Today was a rest day.  I tried to rest completely, but I wanted to get in a TRX training session.  So I did an upper body strength training session (Functional Strength Training, Strength Workout #2).  I really enjoy the TRX Suspension system because of its simplicity, and the intensity that it provides in a workout.  Plus, you not only get a free book with exercises in it, but you also get a DVD and some free training sessions as well.  Me?  I like the training that is provided in the book (TRX Military Fitness Guide) since it is a slow progression that allows you to increase resistance slowly.
