The Triathlete Beat podcast welcomes its FIRST GUEST EVER…Dr. Ryan Balmes! Ryan is a sports physical therapist who co-runs the ENDVR Health physical therapy clinic in Atlanta, Georgia. He is passionate about helping all athletes enjoy and play their sport. I was lucky to catch him while on a weekend trip to Atlanta and really glad we met up to make some content. Definitely check the episode that we recorded on his podcast, The ENDVR Health Podcast as well.
How much training time should one spend on swimming vs. biking vs. running? This is a very common thought that every beginner triathlete experiences when first entering the sport. For those just starting out, I discuss why one shouldn't initially think in terms of swim/bike/run training ratios. Instead, focus more on training to one's weaknesses and building up overall fitness, which will get you primed and ready for that first triathlon and more.
