Trisutto Stimulus programs are one week programs which give focus to one triathlon discipline whilst maintaining fitness in the other two.
Stimulus programs are typically repeated for a training block of 4 weeks before athletes return to their normal training schedule or triathlon program.
It is appropriate for the off season but can also be incorporated during the year if we are wanting to focus on a specific discipline or weakness for a short period.
An example of how it is used during the race season, is that we finish a big race, recover and then commence the stimulus program, before moving back to our normal triathlon program.
Professional Stimulus Programs
These programs are designed for a professional/elite level triathlete who does not have time restrictions either on weekdays or weekends, and who is able to rest between workouts.
The program can be started on any day of the week (i.e. does not necessarily need to be started on a Monday).
