Let's get technical

We are heading into summer and the “Santini Trio Senigallia” triathlon is approaching. We still have a lot to do, but if we look back over the last months we can see the amazing progress made by Mbaye and Oumar.
From the day we turned on the treadmill and get back a blank stare, we moved on to the first experiences on the athletic field. With the help of the coach Luca Zaina we are working on the technical gesture during the race. This is a very important activity, together with the metabolic training, because a correct running style prevents injuries an increases speed too.

Now it’s time to leave the safety of the pool and venture into the true aquatic environment of the triathlete: free waters.

Finally in the free waters!

The improvements on swimming are even more evident, since it was a discipline totally unknown to Mbaye and Oumar only a couple of months ago. The pool has been the place of great advancements – from familiarization with water, to floating, to swimming – but now it’s time to leave the safety of the pool and venture into the true aquatic environment of the triathlete: free waters. Whether it’s rivers, lakes or the sea, swimming in open water is totally different from the indoor. The four walls of the pool disappear, the space is limitless, the bottom goes dark, the water is deeper and connected to weather conditions. Swimming in open water is getting in touch with nature, floating on your own fears, looking for adventure! With Mbaye and Oumar we faced the first session in open water at Bilancino’s lake, with the help of the Performance Builder staff and the magical 2XU wetsuits.

Let’s float, dreamers!

Don't be a fish; be a frog. Swim in the water and jump when you hit ground.
