Reply To: Teams first full USRPT practice & some questions?
I think your introduction to USRPT is too demanding for your kids. If you keep with these number of reps after a few days they will be completely exhausted.
Dr Rushall has anticipated this situation and proposed a protocol to introducing kids to this type of training.
I think the number of repetitions should be reduced and first find out what the are the right target times for each kid individually and then gradually increase number of repetitions.
Start from the block in set of 50’s is not connected with situation from particular 200 m race. There is only one start from the block and three underwater works.
It takes up to mimic the situation in specific disciplines, which means do perfectly every underwater from the wall.
Also, the rest of 20 seconds should be used to maximized preparation for the next repetition (which includes trainer’s suggestions for technique corrections)
