Summer is the time for lazy beach days, delicious BBQs, & hilarious road trips. What triathlete could possibly have time for a strength training workout on top of their regular workouts during the busy summer months?!

The SMART one.

All it takes is a moment of motivation – a twinkle in the eye, a twitch in the muscle fiber – & a killer 5-minute song to help maintain your fitness level & toned triathlete status.  Let me show you how with this awesome 5-minute muscle massacre for triathletes that can be done on the
beach, at the BBQ & even at the rest stop on the summer road trip!

Hit play on your current favorite tune or set a timer for 5 minutes & complete as many rounds as possible of:

5 Deep Squats
