A lot of swimmers don’t give tech suits the credit they deserve because they want to believe it is all their abilities and not the suit that made them fast.
A lot of coaches don’t give tech suits the credit they deserve because they want to believe their magical taper is what made their swimmer drop all the time at the end of the year.
I believe a good tech suit gives a 2% improvement and that might be conservative. Depends on the swimmer’s body type. Just let my flyer wear her tech suit for our last dual meet of the year in her 100 back to go for the school record. It was a 1:01.70 and she broke it with a 1:01.3. Her time this year without a tech suit was a 1:03.5 (though that was coming out of the 200 free relay).
All I’m saying is your swimmers might be a lot closer to lifetime bests than you realize.
