Crazy time drops! It’s obvious the system you have in place works quite well. Quick question, I noticed some of the sets the swimmers only attempted <10 times. I’m just curious when you decided to offer certain sets like before or meet? That seems low compared to some of the others which had 50+ attempts.
What was your practice schedule like? (how many practices a week, how long was the season, and how long were practices?)
Thanks for the help! Currently typing up workouts and cycles to test out in the fall season. Here are the basic sets I’ve picked to test out in the fall. It’s funny how I used to do a bunch of these before USRPT even came about.
Nx25@2:00 – goal time in half
Nx25@2:00 – 1st 50 time in half
Nx25@1:00 – 2nd 50 time in half
Nx50@2:00 – 2nd 50 time
Nx50@2:00 – 1st 50 time
Nx25@0:30 – 2->8th 25 me
Nx50@1:00 – 2->4th 50 Time
Nx75@1:30 – End of race
Nx100@2:00 – End of race
Where can I find information on the Parametric System you spoke of?
Interesting, so you just split 50 goal time in half and start from there for training pace? e.i. Someone shooting for a 22.00 should be doing Nx25 @ 2:00 while holding 11.00? Do you have your swimmers duck under a second early and leave on the 0 or do you have them duck under on the 0? Sorry for the all the questions!
Any idea why some of the sets / events correlate better than others? Which events correlated the least? I’m curious as to why some correlate better than others.
Also, how often do you repeat sets throughout a week or month, and about how many of each 25,50,75 are most swimmers completing during one of the sets, not including the failed reps?
I read your post about prioritization of lifting and the similarities and differences of swimming. Do you think allowing more or less failure reps during different parts of the season will yield better performance? e.i. peak of season allow the swimmers to reach 5 failure reps then slowly “taper” down to only one failure per set right before a big meet. Just a thought.
The correlation between the training pace and end result is mind-boggling. More teams need to try this. Good work keeping track of everything and keeping organized!
Any data for the 50 FR and the other strokes? I’m still not sure how to train and write sets for 50s.
