Thanks, periodization was the plan but I got sick for a few weeks so things are a bit behind now/out of sync. In the build periods do you recommend stopping altogether? do you think maintaining strength work year round is completely without merit?

Hi Joe, thanks for this. I introduced strength training in November as part of my triathlon training, I feel it causes a huge amount of fatigue but this has not been reflected in my overall ATL, I will give your method try. I have a more general question around Strength Training, if it is causing a lot of fatigue (DOMS for 2 days) should I use lighter loads, I'm reluctant to give up altogether and would like to maintain a strength program all year round as I feel overall strength is a limiter. My program consists more or less of the main compound moves with some core work twice a week, it may be affecting the quality of my key workouts though.

Thanks for the advice. yeah I used "ctl" when I meant to use "tss" when referring to workouts! Thanks again.

Joe, as a triathlete should I be using individual PMCs for each sport to dictate how hard a workout should be? So for a bike workout, my current ctl is 20, a hard workout based on this would be around 80 ctl, but my overall fitness is 45ctl a hard workout based on this would be around 140ctl. In reality I'm riding with a small group of strong roadies and ctl often comes in at 200ctl, which I'm finding difficult to manage but feel that sticking with it may be beneficial, is this wise?? Thanks
