Swimming Workout Periodization: It's easier than it sounds.

Coaching is an art, a science, and a maddening pursuit of refining excellence in another's performance. And designing a swimming workout and/or season(s) plan is no different.

Training Aerobic Capacity into Swimming Workouts

As a high school swimmer, coaches would constantly refer to the need to build an 'aerobic base' for future swimming success in college. As a coach, I heard the phrase shift from 'base' to 'capacity'. The clear sustained implication that copious amounts of 'work' were a pre-requisite to reap long-term benefits that may or may not be correlated. Only now do I understand that the aerobic capacity'is a function both of cardiorespiratory performance and the maximum ability to remove and utilize oxygen from circulating blood.'

Augmented reality (AR) is opening up nearly endless possibilities to communicate and engage with our world. And with AR on a swim paddle, you can experience just about anything you can imagine at the pool. Break down the swimming mechanics of freestyle before diving in. Or have a coach walk you through the most important parts of a workout before you push off. The boundaries for coaching anyone, including yourself, are virtually limitless.

Clearly, the solution to performance plateaus must be sports science. So we did the submaximal work. The same ridiculous collection of CO2 and VO2 gases to determine a specific VO2max from graded, stepped efforts of long breaststroke swims – now what to do with it? The man was ‘fit’. After all he was an Olympic athlete.
