Plan Description

Add more speed, power and stamina to your front crawl! Improve your technique, Pacing, reduce your stroke count by up to 10%, and your stroke efficiency (SWOLF score)

Learn how to control your pacing, reduce drag, become more streamlined, build your fitness, and become a Speedier Swimmer!

This 12 week swim training plan is designed to transform your front crawl swimming with 2 sessions a week of core strength, progressing into upper body and arms and core strength over the course of the plan

You will work through each phase of front crawl, including catch, pull, recovery, streamlining, and have test sessions every 4 weeks, including at the start to bench mark your fitness. The test sessions will be short to measure changes in fitness and will look at stroke efficiency too.

There are 2 drills and technique swim sessions per week, 2 core strength and 2 swim fitness sessions, each of which are progressive each week, so that you improve in both technique and fitness over the 12 weeks.

You'll have your own training peaks account for the duration which you can then downgrade to a basic account after the plan has ended. You can upload data from a garmin 910xt or similar to track your swim metrics on Training Peaks

This advanced program is for triathletes and super speedy swimmers whom want to improve their triathlon swim times. You're swimming 400m in 5-6 minutes and want to go even faster!!
