Reply To: Location and USRPT Status
Hi, my name is Donna Hodgert. I was just hired as the head swim coach at Sweet Briar College in Virginia. I am a triathlete and master swimmer. I have read similar training theories for cycling and running especially for master athletes, which I am one. In my personal training, especially running, USRPT has worked and I continue to drop time, even as I get older. I have experimented with USRPT with a former team, but I am excited to really give it a good try. I too an concerned with the fact that USRPT does not incorporate strength training. I got faster after my college swimming career because I spent 2 years in the weight room before competing in Masters Swimming. I swam my best 50 fly time as a 35 year old. I look forward to sharing my experiences with others.
