12 Ways to Improve Your Triathlon Time

Want to power up your triathlete performance without training more? You won't have to log extra miles to get a personal record with these expert tips to race more efficiently.

Swim Faster

“A wetsuit should make you go roughly 10 to 20 seconds faster per 100 meters,” says Jake McLaughlin, Aqua Sphere Triathlon Specialist. “Even the fastest swimmers will choose to wear a wetsuit given the option.” That’s because wetsuits improve buoyancy, and many are coated with slick silicone to help vastly decrease drag. Tip: Try cutting an inch or two off of the legs so you can peel it off more easily to get out of the transition area faster.
