Many triathletes spend what is not written to have the best material in the competition, and that is fine to perform and enjoy in our sport, but we often neglect other attentions. Sure, having a good bike, a good wetsuit and good shoes is great, but if what we want is to get the most out of it all without getting injured, you have to pay special attention to the following.
1- Stress test: We rule out serious pathologies that may impede our favorite sport and serve as the basis for a specialized coach to set the course for us to follow.
2- Visit to the Physiotherapist: Find a specialized and trustworthy physio to help you with their advice and treatments to avoid injuries and overloads. Visit him at least once a month.
3- Cycling biomechanics study: Get a serious and rigorous study with a specialist. It is essential to perform more, injure less and be more comfortable.
4- Visit to the podiatrist: There are more and more expert podiatrists in the sport. After the review they will tell you whether or not you need templates and why.
5- Visit to the nutritionist: Eating is not the same as eating. Find a nutrition expert to advise you to achieve your goals safely.
