Strength Training for Triathletes has some good movements and routines with explanations on how each helps but could be underwhelming if you know your way around the gym.

I worked with a PT for a couple years when I started racing and we focused mostly on hip mobility. Our workouts focused on one big lift followed by a couple rounds of complex/supplemental movements and core work. The general framework was:

Warm up: 3x circuits of activating movements, like KB sings, leg swings, PNF stretching, SMR if needed. These movements would activate the muscles used later in the workout

Main set: 4×8 of Deadlift/Front Squat/Power Clean – We’d rotate these according to a certain schedule, but our big lifts were limited to these three

Circuit: 2x of 3 movements 10x reps each, the second circuit would complement the first. These would be movements like single-leg RDLs, KB swings, KB Squat to press, DB snatches, box jumps, TRX-based movements, and core workouts leveraging balance tools like an AIREX or Bosu/Swiss Ball.

Cool down appropriately with stretching or more SMR.

I am a powerlifter in addition to being a triathlete, so I just do my powerlifting stuff, but I have heard positive reviews of this book: https://www.amazon.com/Strength-Training-Triathletes-Triathlon-Endurance/dp/1937715310/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1486532797&sr=8-1&keywords=strength+training+for+triathletes
