Reply To: N=1. USRPT works.
Wow, that’s impressive. He is a bit of a double-edged sword for this training concept, though. I asked a person who has been coaching some elite/national level swimmers if he had any opinions on usrpt, and he replied “It works for Michael Andrew because he is 6″4″. Otherwise, it doesn’t work”
It was clear to me he hadn’t even bothered to read the literature. Sigh… so disappointing. Coming from a basketball background, I am absolutely astounded sometimes at the complacency I see from some coaches in this sport. Heck, give me 500 10 and under swimmers, and even I will probably turn out a few good ones. Never mind the dozens left behind with injuries or sheer boredom.
