A man exercising

Doug Scott is the Strength and Conditioning Coach of the Pingry School, a college preparatory country day school in New Jersey.  Not only is Doug a leader in his field he is an outstanding triathlete. 

Relegated to home he has had to change his training techniques, as well as address methods for training his student athletes.

Using tubing with plastic paddles for swimming or normal bands, Doug recommends doing 30 pulls with each arm, alternating as if swimming. Following the movement jump into the bed of the truck and lying on one’s back do 30 scissor kicks until achieving 30 with each leg. The number of sets and/or changes in repetition schemes is relative to individual and/or team needs.
