Webinar: Building Effective Swim Programs


(0 votes)


Building Effective Swim Programs

Building effective swimming programs can be a challenging process - especially when working with athletes who require stroke remediation or need to improve aerobic or anaerobic limiters.  In this webinar, we'll look at how to build effective swimming workouts that not only prescribe the correct reps and recovery, but are based on the individualized physiological athlete profile. We'll also look at the importance of skills development and ensuring proper mechanics are employed for maximum efficiency.

By breaking down the mechanics of the swim stroke and employing proper test sets to determine physiological limiters, learn to maximize strengths, diminish limiters, and ensure the most efficiency and effectiveness for your athlete.
