In The Well-Built Triathlete, elite triathlon coach Matt Dixon reveals the approach he has used to turn age-group triathletes into elite professionals and champions.

Dixon's method breaks new ground in triathlon training, introducing a new, comprehensive approach that builds the whole athlete for stronger performance. Dixon details the four pillars of performance that form the foundation of his highly successful purplepatch fitness program, showing triathletes of all abilities how they can become well-built triathletes and perform better year after year.

The Well-Built Triathlete does not focus narrowly on workouts and training, but instead gives equal weight to training and workouts, recovery and rest, workout and daily nutrition, and functional strength and mobility. Dixon considers the demands of career and family to prepare athletes to achieve their goals through a realistic, practical ecosystem of stress and recovery.

The Well-Built Triathlete is Dixon’s guide to every aspect of triathlon performance. Chapters on swimming, cycling, and running explain the most effective ways to train for each. His pragmatic approach to stretching, recovery, and effective strength training shows athletes where they can recover valuable time. A purplepatch section shows how triathletes can achieve long streaks of high performance.

Dixon’s whole-athlete approach to triathlon will help triathletes become greater than the sum of their workouts. By becoming better all-around athletes, well-built triathletes will train and race faster than ever.

This book is a serious must. Having been involved in Sports science for over 12 years, I initially read the first couple of chapters and thought, here we go, another book on sports science 101. Then I got to Chapter 5 and beyond; I’m really glad that I did. This is where the book completely springs to life and where the sheer breadth of knowledge and experience of the author begins to shine through. Having re-read them I can now also see how the early chapters really complement the book. They do in fact broach some pretty current developments that will be of major relevance to those who don’t hold sport as their main profession.

Talks a lot of sense, reasserts things I’ve known and forgotten in the pursuit of getting lean – definitely helping me get back on track for Ironman number 4… I hope!

I like Matt balanced approach and the departure from the traditional periodisation model is certainly refreshing and makes a lot of sense.
