I make camera footages of my swimmers regularly. They’re swimming 25s, 100m race-pace, 15-20s rests, 20 reps, USRPT-style. Only difference is when they swim ‘for the camera’, I don’t let them stop at failures, ’cause I’d like to know what changes in their technique when they swim slower. I’m completely stuck with this guy though. Can anyone help me what’s different when he swims a way faster than his race-pace (16.8) and when he swims 3 seconds slower? 3 seconds in 25m are an eternity…
He’s my best swimmer, and I’m stuck with his BR-development. Almost 2 years ago, his PB was 1:11.27, 5th place at the Nationals. Now, his PB is 1:10.99, only 0.3 seconds better, that’s just virtually nothing. He developed fine in BF, BK and FS, even IM, but we’re stuck with his BR – and it used to be his best event.
Any advice is appreciated!
