    Anyone experience with acromial apophysitis. Read about this on the carlile coaches forum. Seems this is coming from increasing the intensity and by doing this increasing the traction on the growth plate of the acromion. I started this season by implementing 100 % usrpt and now I do have some younger 12-14 year old swimmers with shoulder problems. Some with imbalance between front and back shoulder muscles. This can be solved with some shoulder stability exercises but 2 of my younger swimmers are struggeling with apophysitis of the acromion. Anyone experience with this? Is this due to usrpt or just because of bad luck?

    When I look at the chart, i see some swimmers with low numbers made. Do you use the 3 times missed is leaving the set rule or do you let them swim the number offered and record the numbers made?

    you often mention the parametric system. There is not that much of information I can find about this method when I google. Where can I find this?

    Thx Ottercoach

    started to put in some social kicking and starts and turns in between the sets as well as some drills. But I am still facing the problem that the numbers made in the 2nd and 3rd set are low compared to the 1st set. I suppose this is normal due to fatigue.
    One thing I am worried about is that some of the swimmers start to complain about shoulder pain. These are the swimmers who are eager to beat their last number and start to swim with poor technique and get their time due to the power they put in their stroke. I am wondering if the implemantation of the usrpt sets should be more gradual in the beginning of the season instead of throwing in 3 set/training. Anyone facing the same problem?

    Those usrpt sets are not my problem but I am still figuring out where and how to put in the technical sets. If I read the papers this has to be in the beginning of the training but if I read this forum a lot of people just do technical set in between the usrpt sets. What does give the best results and hiw do you do it? Just swimming at race pace with some instructions or real drill while this is against the format of usrpt. Really looking forward for some advise.
