Book Review: One Hour Workouts
One Hour Workouts by Scott Molina, Mark Newton and Michael Jacques
One Hour Workouts is a great solution for a hectic day. You don’t need to miss a workout just because you are short on time. Training for a triathlon can be very time consuming but this book focuses on effective workouts whether you are training for a triathlon, or if you are just trying to fit in a quick but balanced workout.
Former pro-triathlete Scott Molina and multi-sport coaches Mark Newton and Michael Jacques have compiled 50 high quality swim, bike and run sessions to complement your current training program. This book is the book you take with you when you only have an hour but you need to focus on a specific area of training. The workouts are divided into three broad themes- base, tempo and speed work. There are workouts for swimming, biking and running under each of these categories.
The workouts are easy to follow and there are helpful tips with each category. They also cover ‘brick’ workouts when training for triathlons. Cross training and strength workouts are also laid out at the end of the book. The explanations for each workout are clear, concise and easy to understand even if you are a beginner. The spiral binding and laminated pages make it easy to take with you to the pool. I would recommend this book to anyone looking to improve their training on a busy schedule but also to any athlete looking for effective workouts
