Legendary Kiwi star gets top IRONMAN billing

Legendary Kiwi star gets top IRONMAN billing

Tuesday 03 Mar 2015 [Triathlon News]

The remarkable career of Cameron Brown could have another twist after he was awarded top seeding for the 31st Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain IRONMAN New Zealand. The 42-year-old has already carved out a special niche in the sport. He is the only person to win the same IRONMAN race 10 times, which he achieved at the Taupo event in 2011. Last year he became the oldest male to win an IRONMAN event when he triumphed after a three-man battle on the run in Cairns. more

Dry land exercises for a strong swim core

Thursday 05 Mar 2015 Paul Moore
Photo: John David BeckerPhoto: John David Becker Photo: John David Becker Photo: John David Becker Photo: John David Becker Photo: John David Becker Fast swimming comes from powerful strokes. Powerful strokes come from a strong core. And a strong core comes from more than just a few crunches in the gym. Here are five exercises that will improve your core stability and reduce fatigue in the water. Reverse Wood Chop With Stretch Cords Anchor the stretch cord near the ground. Grasp the other end with both hands. Squat down and twist toward the cord, then turn up and away from the cord until your arms are fully extended. Use an explosive motion to twist your body and engage your core. Repeat 15–25 reps on each side. X-Crunch Up Start by lying on the floor, on your back, with arms and legs extended in the shape of an X. Lift opposite arm and leg off the floor until your hand touches your foot. Lower to the ground and repeat on the other side. Do 20 reps total. Superman Plank Start in a...

Q&A: Simple swaps for better nutrition

Thursday 05 Mar 2015 Paul Moore
Photo: ShutterstockQuestion: What are some easy switches I can make to my diet to yield the greatest nutritional benefits? Answer: Minimising refined carbohydrates such as sugary snacks and candy, white breads, pastas, cookies, cereals and sodas will be beneficial, and there are some great whole grains you can add to your diet, such as oats, barley, quinoa, bulgur, brown and wild rice, faro and spelt. Search for whole grain varieties of pastas, cereals and breads—just make sure you read labels carefully, including the back of the packet ingredient list and not just the front, where marketers weave their magic. True whole-grain varieties will be dense, filling and create less havoc with blood sugar levels and insulin response. Legumes, including lentils, garbanzo beans and cannellini beans, are also good substitutes for refined grains and provide valuable nutrients, including protein and fibre. The key is to get creative and truly interested in your health and your food. Try some of...

Josh Amberger – 5 Things I Wish I knew Before Turning Pro

Thursday 05 Mar 2015 Admin
amberger Words : Josh Amberger | Pic Phil Wrochna Answering a question like this isn’t as easy as it sounds. The problem that first comes to mind is when is one actually considered a pro? Is it when they get their pro card, or when they are actually turning over a living from the sport? One could even break this down further; what constitutes making a living, or even, are you really a pro if you’re not at all competitive? Pro triathletes know how to get by on a shoestring budget, and some pro’s lives are far less than envious. At some point in time, every pro has been against the odds and had to make it work, and I know from experience that I could have not got here today if it wasn’t for the amazing generosity of others, but that’s another story for another day. But my life now is certainly different and easier to what it was then, and I’ve been racing as a professional all along. So the question remains, ‘when I qualified for my pro card when I was 16 & made the Junior Elite team for...

The Warm Up

Thursday 05 Mar 2015 Liam Bromilow
brown Words : Liam Bromilow A buffet of racing takes centre stage this weekend with Ironman New Zealand and Ironman 70.3 Philippines tantalising our long-course taste buds, while the ITU World Triathlon Series is the entrée to the short-course season ahead. Ironman New Zealand Dubbed the best little race in the world, Ironman New Zealand has a raft of local talent looking to add their name to one of the oldest triathlons in the history of the sport. Cameron Brown is the 10-time champion and leads the charge for the men, eager to increase his tally to 11 wins. Standing in his way is another local hero Terenzo Bozzone, who looks to have his end-of-2014 worries behind him. Cutting the course or not, Bozzone was a man possessed last weekend in Dubai and looked the goods. Ironman 70.3 Philippines The battle of Asia rages on this Sunday with Ironman 70.3 Subic Bay Philippines attracting a classy field. Craig Alexander, Tim Reed, Josh Amberger and Luke McKenzie headline the men’s race, which is...

Monitoring Recovery

Wednesday 04 Mar 2015 Melanie@racergirl.com (melanie)
 Steps to Recovery Your body will not be ready to do another workout if it hasn’t adequately recovered from the last one.  In between hard workouts, pro athletes will take some steps to facilitate recovery and complete active recovery workouts to make sure their body is loose and adequately rested to handle the stress of another hard session.  Training is a process of stringing together sessions that challenge the body.  In between the challenging sessions the athlete needs to do everything possible to get ready for another one.  Here are some common practices to improve the process of recovery. Post Session Recovery Recovering from workouts first involves basic steps immediately after the session: 1.   Replenish post workout with fluids and a small amount of protein.  I aim for 0.2g/kg of protein and 0.8 g/kg of carbohydrate within an hour of my workout. 2.     In the hours following your workout, make sure you replenish all the...

Taiwan 70.3

Tuesday 04 Nov 2014 Admin
Taiwan Photo Shoot 1 When Guy and I traveled to compete in Taiwan 70.3 last year for the first time we had such a great experience we said we would definitely be going back. No just the race itself, but the location at the Yoho resort, the organisation and the fun atmosphere. So it was always going to be on the schedule. When our season was thrown a curveball after IM Louisville with the cancellation of IM Lake Tahoe we took a bit of down time, although it felt like we have been resting for weeks anyway!! We focused on GKEndurance, in particular our athletes racing in Hawaii. On returning to Boise it was back into it…we had 3 weeks…including packing up our life from the last 6months and returning to Perth. It was going to be CRAZY! After 2 days of travel via Auckland we were back on the West Coast of Australia for 4 days then few the red eye Thursday night to Taiwan. We arrived Friday afternoon. Excited to be back! The lead up to the race including getting to hang out with the AWESOME crew from Ceepo! A...

What Now??

Sunday 28 Sep 2014 Admin
As always it has been a crazy few months with many high’s and low’s that are all part of the emotional roller coaster and life of a Professional Triathlete! Guy sums it up nicely in pictures and few words here: http://www.guycrawford.us/news.php This was done a few days before Ironman Lake Tahoe! I was pretty excited about the opportunity to do this race. I had a little bit longer taper than normal but better to be fresh than over done!! It was also the last chance for Professional’s to race in Tahoe as it will be a non-Pro race next year. Plus it is just stunning! Guy and I arrived 10 days early to adjust to the altitude and know everything we can about the course. We both felt good and ready to go come race day! But as you know by now the Ironman was unfortunately cancelled! Massive fires in California had resulted in excessive amounts of smoke being blown in and trapped in the Lake Tahoe area. A few days out weather forecasts were showing the wind changing...

Persistance and Perseverance – Busselton 70.3 Champion!

Tuesday 20 May 2014 Admin
Busso 70.3 Swim Start Finally!!!! I am so excited to say FINALLY I have won the Busselton 70.3! I have been competing in this event for many years, and love it!! I consider it a home race and also the last of our summer season in Western Australia. So everyone makes the annual trek to Busselton to either compete or support. It is the place to be! The last 3 years I have been on the start line I have had great days and finished 2nd every time! Not quite able to crack that top position. One year…I kept telling myself….just keep plugging away. You have to be in it to win it!! After trying to do probably a little too much early in the year with not enough training, there were no expectations going into the race. Guy and I had a reasonably easy couple of weeks following a failed attempt at Challenge Taiwan where we realised we were pretty tired and it was time to step back and reload before the USA summer season. But we just could’t say no to Busso!! We love everything about the race too much and were...
