Reply To: Do you think USRPT is same as HIT or HIIT?
Offering 14.9k is not the hard part, it’s doing 14.9k that’s difficult. At 6 workouts a week that’s only 2.4k per workout, again that’s offered, not made. As a Club Team we also train for the 200s of the stroke, so we do 75s in the USRPT protocol which can bump up RP offered volume.
We train Monday thru Friday 1.5-2hrs depending on what we need to get done and Saturday mornings 1.5-2hrs. We run 3 USRPT per workout and on some days 4 depending on the group. 1 coach and 22 swimmers, 3 workouts we’re in 6 lanes and 3 we have 8 🙂
Your numbers done are going to be all over the place. They will have great days and make over 75% of offered and then they have days that they do 2 of 20. But that is how the system is set up “auto-regulating” I attached one of your recording sheets so you can see they get all over (mainly attendance issues have the greatest impact). We have these for every stroke and distance.It looks like right now that if they can achieve just over 60% offered that speed becomes “race reliable” meaning you can use it to perdict performances, below that and it becomes “iffy” at best.
