Managment consultant. Focus on yoga, swimming (beginner, TI) and general training.

Training background:

  • Childhood: playground soccer, ice hockey, cross country skiing, swimming
  • 1973-1986 Basketball. Played in the Swedish junior national team and in the Swedish level 1 series (Brahe, IFK Linköping). Coached kids team, camp leader.
  • 1986-2000. Tried various martial arts, fencing, weightlifting, played in lower divisions of basketball. Constant problems with knees and back.
  • 2000-2007. Sporadic training due to becoming the father of twins, weightlifting, running, was only consistent with two years of Jodo. BMI peaked at 27 in 2002
  • 2007- . Mix of "everyday active" (bike to work, take the stairs instead of elevator,...), yoga, weightlifting (squats, deadlift, military press), functional training (e.g. MAQ, burpees) and swimming. Feels great.

Working out for 90+120 minutes and not filling up with water and energy seems a bit on the destructive side

The answer is a bit on the short side. Also, it seems like the progress has stalled

Perhaps you can add some links/references to the studies? Google scholar is great.

Perhaps you can add some detail on your overall goals, e.g. if this is for the purpose of general well-being, there shouldn't be any time pressure. On the other hand, if you have a specific goal in time, it is a different matter.

See this question fitness.stackexchange.com/a/7127/3778 for the BMI of world class female swimmers. If you put together a similar table for the best triathletes, I will put it in a similar diagram as an answer.
