The Wednesday Wrap: A short list of fitness things that Kirkwood Head Trainer, Ethan Duff, is enjoying right now.
The moment that lingered in my mind after a recent triathlon-science conference came from a panel discussion with “gold-medal coaches,” including Iñaki Arenal, head of the Spanish high-performance team, and Malcolm Brown, coach of the Olympic-medal-winning Brownlee brothers.

Instead both gave the same answer: strength training.
