Here are some strategies I have found to be useful. Do not program a separate shoulder day. Prefer push/pull split routines instead. Otherwise your supraspinatus and front deltoids will work twice (during chest day and shoulder day) and so your infraspinatus and rear delts as well (during back day and shoulder day). This reduces their recovery ability and ...

Get a coach or join a team. Although I can recommend the Couch to 5k/10k, it's harder for me to do the same for a Couch-to-Triathlon scheme. Triathlon is not just Swim/Bike/Run - There is Technics involved, transistions to master and flows to understand. You need to gradually increase your abilities in 3 (three) different type of sports, which each has ...
