Ok I will admit. I’ve never competed in a triathlon. The only closest thing that I’ve done to a triathalon is doing Tough Mudder (I hope to do a triathlon one day) but off of Robb Wolf’s website (the guy who popularized the Paleo Diet)I read a different approach to training for a triathlon by Ben Greenfield who runs a popular triathalon blog that specializes in training efficiently for it. I thought it was so interesting that I had to repost it. The true source is found at this link. But if your too lazy to go there, I just copied and pasted it here. Enjoy!

I cannot express how important it is to work out your legs for Tough Mudder. And there is also so many benefits of working out your legs. It has one of the largest muscle groups in your body and when you work them out it releases the most testosterone and growth hormones.
And plus you need your legs to do these things:
These days we don’t see old school action flicks like we use to in the 80′s and 90′s. Hence the big draw and success with the first Expendables. This is a sad fact but how many kids born in the 90′s would know Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Commando, Sylvester Stallone’s Cobra, Jean Claude Van Damme’s Universal Solider, or Jackie Chan’s Drunken Master II?
How can you not love Terry Crews?
He is probably the most funniest, jacked actor out there. Just look at him.
So you want a six pack?
Lets review Equinox’s “Science of a Six pack”. Before I get into this, you need to understand that abs are made in the kitchen. Everybody has abs. It’s just that some are covered in more fat than others. And the easiest way to burn that fat off is by doing a low carb diet or go on a paleo diet. It’s hard to do but you’ll get results. Trust me because I got some semblance of abs a little while ago.
