The level of intensity is unreal – they take the swim out hard, and then push the pace from there. To be able to do that they must train their bodies to switch disciplines quickly and maintain max effort levels. There simply is no time to ease into the bike or the run.

Their transitions are pure efficiency – every movement maximized and practiced to eliminate redundancies. Given the first three were mere seconds apart, any hiccup in transition would be very costly.

Amazing!

How do you practice transitioning from one discipline to the next?
