Reply To: Training LCM, 200 Pace struggles?
I wouldn’t change the rest time from 20 seconds. I would change the target time.
I don’t know if you have been doing USRPT for an extended time or not, but I believe that if you make the target time a bit easier, the swimmers can get some confidence making the target time. Once they do that, then have them work at actual 200 RP.
You might try starting out at 2 seconds above their target time, then once they can make 20 of them, bring it down another second.
