Star Physio and Podiatry – Preparation=Performance Workshop
Countdown to Busso! How to maximise your chance of a great race through smart training, the right equipment and setup and management of niggles!!!
WHEN: Thursday 10th March, 6.00pm
WHERE: Star Physio West Perth, 3rd Floor, 31 Outram St West Perth
Free street parking and secure bike parking available upstairs
TWA in conjunction with its physiotherapy partner Star Physio, presents an evening lecture and Q&A with three of Western Australia’s most highly regarded triathlon physiotherapists, James Lewin and Dan Davis who are also sports scientists and Julie Pham, who has the dual qualification of podiatrist! Check out here for more info on your presenters!
The Star Physio Team will share their expertise and thoughts in what to do and what not to do in the lead up to the Busselton 100, in particular, what to do if you get pain or an injury. You might be surprised how often it is safe to train through or around an injury to still achieve your goals – but only once assessed and diagnosed by an expert.
While we encourage all to attend for the full experience, we will also stream the content online for those unable to join us in person or if we exceed our COVID limited capacity. Be sure to book early!
Other key topics
-Training volume, intensity, recovery, and injury risk
-Running shoes and technique – what is the evidence
-Bikefit in triathlon – sustainability v’s power v’s aero – how to balance it
As we remind triathletes, “Not all physiotherapists are the same”!
The presentation will be followed by a Q & A session where triathletes are welcome to ask specific questions of these experts with our aim to be all done in just over 1 hour so that everyone can get their valuable recovery sleep!
We have two options available for this workshop, attend in person, places will be strictly limited so get in early! Or register to attend online and further information and links will be sent prior to the event.
