Had our first LC meet this past weekend. I’ve worked with only 3 of our teams swimmers this summer on 100% USRPT for 6 weeks (4 days/week, 3-4sets each practice).
the 14yo boy had a good meet & dropped time in almost everything BUT, I’m not sure if it’s just because his hormones are in full effect or because this is only his second year of swimming & some technique changes are helping him.
the 2 girls (13yo & 10yo….13yo being my daughter) swam like they’ve been out of the pool for 6 months. Now they both have been in traditional programs for 7 & 5 yrs respectively & I know it’s going to take some time but it was disheartening to see. I felt the blame & obviously questioned everything I was doing, even though I believe in USRPT. They looked “de-conditioned” if that’s a word.
oh well….not going to say it’s not working but not sure at this point what to change if anything
