Reply To: Stroke Effiiency & USRPT
I haven’t worked anything longer than 200s. I “stroke count” by knowing if I’m pulling into a turn with a different hand or finishing with a different hand so I guess that’s also the unconscious understanding for me.
I was mostly referring to an age grouper or inexperienced RP swimmer like his son not being able to concentrate on 2 things. However, if you “train” to move stroke count awareness to the subconscious while you work on a technical element I think that would work just like any other mental awareness training. I’ll back off that mutually exclusive statement.
This is a great representation of stroke inefficiency when rate is increased:
