Mark Allen Gives "Strength Training" a Thumbs Up
A recent article that Slowtwitch (slowtwitch.com), a popular triathlon website, did with Mark Allen validates that even triathletes (good ones at that) feel that lifting weights is important- especially as we age. Slowtwitch asks Allen:
ST: You looking fit and healthy, what do you do to stay in shape?
Mark: Surf, run and lift weights. So I still have my three workouts or sports but the emphasis is different. I live two blocks from one of the main breaks in Santa Cruz and can go out most days of the week. Running is my backup because it is so easy to do anywhere, anytime. And the weights is something that I am realizing is more and more important as the years add up on my life scorecard.
