I would like to gain an advantage in my sprint, preferably longer ones such as 100s and maybe 200s, no 50s or anything longer than 200m, by using the paddles to give myself resistance to build my fast twitch fibers and anaerobic system because i have been reading around and ive found alot of sources online saying that 60-70% of a 100m race, doesnt matter what stroke, is using the anaerobic system, and the other 30-40% is aerobic so i thought maybe if increased my resistance through the water odd days of the week, i could stimulate my anaerobic system and on even days of the week i do normal usrpt i will stimulate my aerobic system and my muscle fibers to get a feel for race pace
