Super League: Georgia Taylor-Brown’s Guide to Swim and run Mobility Exercises for Triathlon
Georgia Taylor-Brown knows the key to success in triathlon lies beyond just solid swim, bike and run workouts.
The 26-year-old British star has enjoyed a stellar rise to the top of the triathlon world, finishing third in the WTS rankings in both 2018 and 2019.
Taylor-Brown has been using lockdown to stay fit and motivated ready for a push for the Olympics when they eventually take place in 2021.
She uses her Yorkshire base as the perfect training centre, completing the majority of her work there each year and it has paid dividends.
Taylor-Brown gave up some of her time to guide us through her top tips for staying mobile ready to both swim and run. You can see the exercises below and watch Georgia demonstrate them on the video.
