Does anyone have information on these younger kids recovery time out of the water? I am reading some of these kids are doing 2 workouts a day which means for most of them (who are not home schooled) they are practicing before school going to school all day and then doing another 1 and half to 2 hour practice in the late afternoon or evening. Parents are asking questions about their child practicing more than once a day because Michael Andrew and another child who is training race pace is doing it. I have read research about a child’s recovery time and the need to fully rest their body in order do race or any sport at peak performance. Isn’t USRPT suppose to be less time in the water? Anyone have any thoughts? Really would like to hear from age group coaches who are having success with your younger kids.
