You will be a long-term athlete, experienced and proficient in your sport and used to training regularly but maybe with little structure or accountability or used to more general pace club based sessions. This programme is suitable for an athlete at the top of their game wanting marginal improvements that make a real difference or an athlete wanting to take the next step up to being one of the top performing in their sport. You may be focussing on improving all aspects of your sports or the one discipline that you need to move up the swim pack to complement your expertise in the others. These performance programmes and their data driven rationale and integral fitness ramp rates will ensure you can become the best you can be with many protocols taken from the UK’s high-performance centres.
The plan will work your threshold pace and long endurance pace, ensuring that you knock significant time off your swim performance at the end of the training period. Shorter harder sessions are in the week, with a longer swim and optional technique sessions at the weekend
This swim boost programme is suitable as a stand-alone performance programme for competent and confident 1500 swimmers and Olympic distance triathletes. It is POOL BASED' with some additional Open Water and Sea sessions included if you want to use them at the end of this plan. This programme will be suitable for you if you are regularly swimming between 1500 and 2500 per session, front crawl with times per 100 between 1-25 and 2:15. All timings are set according to your swim ability
The programme is 12 weeks and you’ll need to know how to use a pool clock or timing device to pace yourself. Theraband or old cycle tyre inner tube handy too. If you want to rely on a similar programme that uses CRITICAL SWIM SPEED by Swim Smooth, BTF performance partner then select the performance swim programme with ‘CSS’ in the title.
