How to Make the Most Out of Your Brick Workouts

Bike-to-run workouts, or brick workouts, can help you rebuild fitness after a long injury and train your mind to bear the change from cycling to running. Bricks can even speed up your transition time.

To get the most from your bricks--and to be certain they are building blocks for future success--make sure each one has a purpose. Here are some ways to put intention into your bricks.

Neuromuscular Training

Neuromuscular training means you're training your body and mind to tolerate the unusual change in motion from cycling to running. By practicing the adjustment from circular cycling to forward and backward strides of running, your body is trained to recognize the change as normal. This training includes muscle pattern programming and learning to be efficient in that motion. Muscles, tendons, ligaments and the mind are all trained to be more comfortable going directly from cycling to running.

As with single-sport training, it is best to begin with aerobic brick workouts. Once you've gained endurance, you can add speed later.

Speedy Transitions

Brick workouts are a great way to reduce transition time on race day. One helpful technique is to set up a transition area in a parking lot and video your transition from cycling to running. After recording and timing the transition, look for ways to reduce the time.

It may be tough to recognize where you can save time. To get some tips, try looking at videos from pro races.

Last weekend we had the pleasure of attending the Jenson Button Trust Triathlon in Luton Hoo in the UK. If you won one of our competition places for the race it was fantastic to meet you and chat about your swimming at the event. Or if you came down for our special coached open water session on Friday night it was great working with you!

We’d not seen Jenson swim before but we had a sneaky little look at his stroke during the race from one of the support boats. As one of those annoyingly talented sports people you might be unsurprised to learn he’s a great swimmer with a really nice stroke!

One thing Jenson does really well which you should look to replicate in your own stroke is that he breathes out of the side of his mouth to allow him to keep his head low in the water whilst he breathes:



If you’ve got our DVD Boxset you’ll know we call this ‘Popeye Breathing’ as you shape your mouth to the side like Popeye chewing his spinach:

Try this the next time you swim. Keeping the head as low as possible as you breathe helps keep the front of your body lower in the water and brings your legs up higher, reducing your drag.

Many swimmers suffer from low lying legs in the water, creating large amounts of additional drag, slowing them down hugely. If you are much faster with a pull buoy and/or a wetsuit then you know this is an issue for yourself - in fact it will be the single biggest thing holding you back.

There are many reasons why a swimmer may have low lying legs including holding their breath, pressing down at the front of the stroke, poor kicking technique and lifting the head to breathe. But here’s another that is often overlooked:

PRESSING UP At The Back Of The Stroke

Pressing up at the rear of the stroke is often overlooked by coaches because it is quite hard to spot without video analysis:





On the simplest level, propulsion in swimming is about pressing water backwards to send you forwards. Pressing up at the back of the stroke can feel quite nice because you feel quite a lot of water pressure on your palm but by pressing it upwards you are not producing any propulsion and only creating downward pressure on your legs. All by itself this can be enough to create a low lying body position.

Instead, think about pressing the water back to the wall behind you through your arm stroke and as your hand passes the top of your thigh, smoothly turn the palm to face towards the thigh to finish the stroke neatly. That will leave you perfectly placed for a relaxed recovery over the water:





Remember not to extend the arm fully straight at the rear, you’re not looking to force your arm out bolt straight, that will put a lot of stress on the elbow (commonly leading to medial epicondylitis - “golfers elbow”) and not give you any additional propulsion. Elite swimmers don't do this, they actually finish at the back of the stroke with a slightly bent elbow:
