I am going to write my training plan for the upcoming year, and was looking for a scientific approach to overall training. This was the twelfth site I visited in my search and it's the only one I use. Keep at it Mikael!
The program covered all of the essential core exercises that I can think of. It is very time effective - which is good. If to long program there is a risk that it won't be done. Also, great explanations of the different exercises.
The core programme is excellent. It feels far tougher than it first looks. Improvement in swimming, holding technique even as I start to tire. Could also be true on the run but hard to be certain. I will continue to follow advanced programme twice per week.
Let's take the guesswork out of triathlon training!

This Is What I Do...
And Here's How I Do It
That Triathlon Show isn't your typical triathlon podcast. It's focus is 100% on helping athletes train smarter and race faster by giving actionable tips and advice.
I provide proven training plans that I believe are the best value-for-money plans put together so far (I know because I've bought so many of them myself). A few plans are available now, and more are added regularly. I also offer customised race plans tailored to your abilities, goals and constraints.
If you really want to get the best out of yourself as an athlete, whether you're a beginner or semi-pro, and whether your 4 or 34 hours per week, you need a coach. I offer remote individual coaching only to a select number of athletes (15). I also offer bespoke consultations (remotely) on specific topics (like how to use running power meters) or as a feedback and advice session on your overall triathlon training.
Who is Mikael Eriksson?
I'm an endurance sports fanatic and science nerd. I'm a competitive triathlete myself, but my real gift is in coaching, and in educating others get the best out of themselves. Until August 2017 I worked as an engineer in medical devices in Helsinki, Finland. But a what-the-heck-moment and flight ticket later I was a full-time triathlon coach living in Lisbon, Portugal, living my passion and loving every second!
I've helped thousands of triathletes train smarter and achieve their triathlon goals through the education I provide in my newsletter (sign up here) and podcast (check it out). I coach a significantly smaller number of athletes (fortunately), but that really is where I can make the biggest impact through my coaching approach which is practical, but still very much scientific and analytical. I do love the data and numbers, and I'm very good with it, if I may say so myself. Most of all though, my approach is driven by my passion and dedication for my athletes' success.
Personally as a triathlete, I focus on sprint and Olympic distance races at the moment. I want to really see how fast I can become on those distances. I've checked the boxes for top-10 finishes at the Finnish national championships at both those distances. The next goal is top-5, and after that, who knows? The sky is the limit!
