Reply To: Do you think USRPT is same as HIT or HIIT?
Club coach, same club 35 years. They train to swim the 50, 100, 200 an occasional 500 free, 100 and 200 of stroke along with 200IM. Don’t have many interested in distance not sure why as they do well when they swim it. Although they don’t like the USRP format for distance, hurts like hell.:)
The 60% reference or what we call “showing mastery”. It’s of total offered for current point in the season. Look at it like putting money in the bank, you’re “accumulating potential” of your principle so you can earn interest that you can go spend or “utilization of potential”. Just like putting money in savings it takes awhile before it really starts earning enough interest for you to use. So, more mid-season volumes will you be able to use for predicting perfomances. We ask the kids early season to be within 3% of LTB when racing and wait until numbers made come up before we start predictions. So one set, one time is not “mastery” or even over a week. Probably hasn’t accumulated enough potetinal to utilize just yet.
Hope this helps.
