Lefthanded swimmer,

Are you saying that you are moving the rest from 30 to 20 seconds within the same set? I would keep it consistent at the same rest interval throughout the set. If he is doing 28 reps on 20 rest, he is ready to move the pace down. Go to 14.25 with 20 rest for the whole set. It may be very difficult at first but don’t panic. The first few times he does the set, his body is going to have to adapt to the new stimulus. But he should be able to progress at 14.25 pace if he is doing in the upper 20’s on 14.75.
