Pro Triathlete Renée Tomlin’s Strength and Conditioning Routine

With the weather getting warmer, this time of year is great for being outside and going for a run, bike ride or swim. Renée Tomlin does all three of those outdoor exercises multiple times per week.

As a pro triathlete, Tomlin needs the strength to push through nearly a mile of swimming, 24.8 miles of biking and 6.2 miles of running in a row on race day. No, that’s not a typo! Those lengthy race distances are a big reason why she added BiPro to her workout routine last year; it’s helped her get stronger without bulking up. For Tomlin, stronger means recovering faster and optimizing the adaptation the workout offers physiologically.  

“If you’re a serious athlete and are training so much per day, your muscles are breaking down and your body needs something to restore them,” Tomlin said. “BiPro hasn’t bulked me up. It’s helped keep me strong.”

Aside from a run, bike or swim workout, Tomlin spends a lot of time stretching and doing strength training exercises to develop her core. Some of Tomlin’s moves include reps of overhead squats and lunges, high box step ups and side planks with a knee raise-to-chest movement. Her routine, developed by leaders within the Australian Institute of Sport, is dynamic and body-weight centralized. In addition, Tomlin also likes to work her abs for 10 minutes and then do myrtl exercises to help with flexibility, hip and glute strength.
