Reply To: Location and USRPT Status
I am a high school coach in northeastern Minnesota. I am interested in learning more about USRPT. We had a successful girls’ season this fall, breaking six school records, and only one of those was done by a senior, so I need to be convinced that USRPT is better than what we have been doing, which is my adaptation of the 3S system and some additional race-paced training, particularly Tabata sets.
Some practical questions I have:
Do you start with USRPT on the first day of the season? We have some girls who don’t train from the day the high school season ends until the next one begins. Can they jump right in to USRPT training?
What sort of warmup and cooldown swimming is done in USRPT?
How do you time 25s with 20 girls in three lanes?
