I am not your typical triathlete. definitely not your typical anything, period. Like everyone else, I need to fuel my brain. However, I only partially look to triathlon or other triathletes for inspiration. I have a different approach.

My inspiration mostly stems from UFC ( admittedly I was not a fan of that in the beginning ), NASCAR ( American Stock car racing ), Golf, Street Skateboarding, big mountain skiing/snowboarding and credible rappers.

I am able to recognize minute details in these things like aerodynamics, core strength, agility, endurance, visualization, instant focus, mental strength, proper technique, killer instinct, courage, strategy. I can then implement what I saw/feel/sense into triathlon.

This outside the box thinking makes me better at the end of the day.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKtqKKugzus     NASCAR. try to steer a V8 800BHP car with the aerodynamics of a Timberland shoebox with +200mph through a corner during 3 – 4 hours straight. you gotta to have stamina, focus on what’s instant and understand aerodynamics. easier said than done.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKsv50AMvHw UFC. not an MMA fan from the beginning. But when I studied it closer, I realized that these guys gotta have it all. the complete package: core strength, endurance, power, killer instinct, proper technique over all the disciplines otherwise you end up as mince meat.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbXSIa1zAAI Golf. being a former scratch player myself, I love it. If you want to be a pro golfer nowadays, you need to have the best core strength paired with immaculate mental strength. just check out Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart himself.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FXI90KR_xnU Big mountain snowboarding. gotta have mega cojones and visualisation  to do these tricks. Gosh, having grown up in Switzerland, I miss the winter.

Sure, music taste is subjective, but proper technique is not. check out how tight and clean the flow is, plus when you get interviews with Warren Buffett, you on top of s***.
