This plan is designed to prepare a novice swimmer for the demands of the swim portion of a sprint triathlon. Daily workouts will be delivered through a free app called commit swimming, where I will better be able to manage your yardage and ensure you have very specific exercises tailored to you. Included in the plan is a biomechanical analysis of your stroke. I will need you to film and send it to me. Please reach out with questions prior to a purchase to make sure you have the correct plan.
