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 an excellent challenging session and relies upon you knowing your current CSS (threshold) pace. If you haven't done testing, no worries, we have expertise on how to solve that. 

Intervals will range from 50m to 800m, and we will be using Tempo Trainers to maximise the pacing skill training. Swim Smooth are proud to bring CSS training to the wider swimming community and see HUGE swim gains!
