Video: A 30-Minute Endurance-Focused Strength Routine

This strength focuses on endurance, with lower intensity exercises and short rest.

This strength routine from Rehab United co-owner Bryan Hill is focused on building endurance. Most exercises also have the option of being multi-directional to work in all planes of motion, since we triathletes are only accustomed to moving in one direction,

Do three rounds of the six exercises. Do each exercise for one minute followed by 30 seconds of rest. Then rest for two minutes between the rounds, before doing it all again—for 30 minutes total.

The exercises include: lunge to clean and press, an x-chop, step-ups, supine knee drive, elbow-hand walk-ups, and jump. See the full descriptions of the exercises here.
