Triathlon Legend and Hall of Famer Dave Scott on Developing Young Talent within Endurance Sports


6-Time Triathlon World Champion Dave Scott joined Stephen McCarthy of The McCarthy Project to discuss current trends in the world of triathlon and the development of young athletes.

We covered the following areas specific to endurance athletes.

1. Strength and Conditioning needs to remain or become a vital part of a triathlete's overall program.

2.  Balance within each athlete's training program is a key to success, not survival of the fittest training or who works the hardest as method of choice to develop your talent as an endurance athlete.

3.  Art and Science are feathered together to find the best program based on the individual athlete, not "mythical, old-wives tales or "science says do this" training programs.

4. Recovery must be promoted as one of the pillars to success in triathlon.
