Howie, what is your training regimen like leading up to the Warrior Games?
I train for sports year-round primarily for triathlons, I swim, cycle and use my racing chair for about 15-20 hours a week. That doesn’t include all the other stuff we do as far as meal prep, nutrition, recovery, massage. I train full time.
You won five Gold Medals, what’s your secret?
