My Perfect Training Week (Ron Saetermoe)

Because of the normal demands of “life,” it seems we seldom have time to squeeze in all of the quality training that we’d like to. When “life” doesn’t get in the way, here is my perfect training week:

Day
Morning Workout
Afternoon Workout
Monday
Swim
Strength
Tuesday
CompuTrainer
Treadmill
Wednesday
Swim
Strength
Thursday
CompuTrainer
Treadmill
Friday
Swim
Off
Saturday
Long Ride/Short Run
Off
Sunday
Short Ride/Long Run
Off

Here’s why this is my perfect week:

1. I get three good workouts in each sport.
2. I incorporate two strength sessions.
3. I get two CompuTrainer (CT) workouts. The CT allows you to get a very high-quality workout in a short amount of time.
4. I get two treadmill workouts. Like the CT, the treadmill allows you to get a high-quality workout in a short period of time.
5. This format allows my upper body and lower body to rest alternating days.
6. I get to do my long workouts on the weekends when I have more time.
7. I do bricks both Saturday and Sunday, which helps me in competition.

How often am I able to do my “perfect training week”? Not often enough, but I’m always trying.

I’m sure you have your own perfect training week. If so, let us know what it is – we’d like to know.
