Unless you’re going to swim in a meet with that drag suit……no go 🙂

Here’s your answer about “total completion” straight from the doc:

“The reaction to total completion should be to increase the velocity of swimming for each repetition so that the swimmer will fail to complete the total number for the set. Total completion indicates to the swimmer they have maximized their capacity to perform at the race-pace over the repetition distance for the
target swimming event. In traditional swimming, completing all the repetitions is good, but in USRPT it indicates that the training set was too easy and the swimmer did not experience a maximum training stimulus that would produce a full training-effect. Thus, in USRPT completing all repetitions (i.e., not failing) is not good because training was not as effective as it could be.”

hope that helps
