Ep 103- Lee Welton: Hiking as Cross Training for Cyclists & Triathletes

Lee Welton
Do you enjoy hiking as a cross-training activity for your cycling or triathlon?
While I have used it regularly for my athletes since 2008 as part of their training regimen, it’s not as easy it many make it out to be:
– Risk of overuse injuries
-Aches, pains, and soreness in small stabilizing muscles that can last for days (and thus detract from your training!)
and many other things, can sap the fun and enjoyment out of what should be a re-energizing break from the endurance sport grind.
Lee Welton is a Physical Therapist and strength coach for hikers and backpackers. An outdoor enthusiast himself, Lee enjoys adventures in the great outdoors, and spent some time with us discussing:  The similarities between hiking and biking The importance of strong feet Mistakes cyclists and triathletes make when adding hiking to their fall or winter training How to stay strong, resilient, and injury free and much more! Lee is a wealth of knowledge, and shares some deep insights into how to tie together strength training for performance and cross training, while allowing the latter to be an enjoyable mental and physical break from your chosen sport!
