Reasons Triathletes under-perform and "overuse" structures of their body:
1) Lack of Mobility- optimal motion in a joint of a series of joints is a requirement for any athlete to perform at their best; This also encompasses the soft tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments) that move and stabilize each joint
2) Lack of Stability- control in the presence of change; Developing stability of a region is essential in order to generate force during any sport specific motion.
3) Lack of Functional Movement ability- all athletes need to be able to move their bodies through a full range of motion while generating force... the essence of "Functional" movement.
4) Optimal sport specific movement(s)- Optimal technique is critical in any spor and with triathlon especially as three sports need to be performed as efficiently as possible. With optimal technique in each sport less "wasted" motion occurs, fewer compensatory movement need to be performed to get the job done and as a result less fatigue and less chance of injury to tissues that cannot handle the stress.
