To get the most out of these sessions you should ideally be able to swim 200m of front crawl in one go.
Swimmers will be grouped in the lanes according to their individual pace; from the novices and improvers, right up to the advanced swimmers.
If you are still in doubt give us a call and we can work out the best option for you to take your swimming to next level!
TECHNIQUE & FITNESS
After a weekend of long training sets, this is a great way to start your week. This session will focus on technique work to refine your individual stroke. Take your time and focus on YOU! The goal is to improve form and efficiency for your long distance swimming.
There will be very little emphasis on target times during this session, instead we keep you focused primarily on certain aspects of your technique.
Squad members will get access to drill videos that we are using in the session.
MONDAY 5.45 -6.45 AM
If you want to enhance your speed in the pool and the open water over distances greater than 400m, then this is the place to start.
It's a very challenging session and relies upon you knowing your current CSS (threshold) pace. Intervals will range from 50m to 500m and will all centre around CSS pacing.
We often do 10 weeks CSS challenges to deliver average 3.7% improvement in your CSS. Can you beat that :)?
There will be a few drills and a few sprints as well, but the majority of the session is focused on you maintaining your racing speed and becoming very sufficient holding your form.
WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY 5.45 - 6.45 AM
Are you ready for becoming a diesel engine and swim your next race without burning out the matches too soon?
The infamous "Red Mist" Long Endurance Session is one tough 90 minute session.
This session is testing your mental and physical toughness, preparing you for long distance racing (half and full distance triathlons). Interval distances range from multiple 50m intervals up to 1000+m with very little rest.
FRIDAY 5.30 - 7.00 AM
Together with proper pacing skill, working with swim specific strength is another way to boost your swimming and racing. It is a Red Mist type session with more focus on paddle work with proper technique to keep you injury free.
THURSDAY 5.30 - 7.00 AM
Monday is a kick start to a week ahead. This session will give a great taste of each of our weekly session types:
- bit of technique
- bit of strength work
- bit of threshold
- some longer challenging RED MIST intervals
The ratio of these part will evolve over the course depending on what we have in the race calendar and in what season we are. The main goal is to prepare you key events for the season.
It is going to be lot of fun and will have everything that you can expect from an engaging Swim Smooth session!
