Event Details

We're pleased to announce the return of our Squad Training Swim Sessions!

Held at Aldershot Garrison 50 metre pool, on Tuesdays at 20.30pm, starting on 9th January 2018.

Participants will improve technique, threshold or race pacing, reduce stroke count by up to 10%, and stroke efficiency (SWOLF score), and above all, have great fun!

All sessions are periodised into blocks of 4 weeks according to our annual swim training plan, building structured and progressive sessions so you can see consistent results and improvement.                        

 

WHAT TO EXPECT:

Each session lasts for one hour and will include 5-10 minute warm up, 45-50 minutes of weekly paced interval training, according to your fitness level and 5 minute cool down with stretches. 

Each week there will be a different focus on a 4 week rolling cycle. Participants will build and improve cardio vascular fitness, lung capacity and muscular endurance. The group will focus on technique, as well as improve distance per stroke, with drills for the 6 phases of front crawl. This will be followed by interval based sets to improve strength, speed, pacing awareness, lactate tolerance, anaerobic threshold and open water skills.

These will be threshold and Tempo trainer based sets to teach the group how to swim at a variety of different paces. There are also some pool based open water skills and drills in these sessions.

Your coach will keep a record each week of how you're doing, and the improvements you'll be making, so that you see and can track consistent progress on your technique and splits, and enjoy each session fully!

How do you know if these squad sessions are right for you?

These sessions are for intermediate swimmers who can swim in the speed range of 1:30 minutes to 2:15 minutes pace per 100 metres.

We require you to be able to swim at least 6 x 100 metres continuous front crawl with 20 seconds rest in the above pace range before booking on the course.

Examples of the types of swim sessions and technique drills we will ask you to do include:

  • Drills to improve your streamlining and reduce your resistance in the water
  • Swimming faster without a loss of technique
  • Improving your feel for the water with an enhanced catch and pull phase
  • Improved kicking technique
  • A higher body position
  • Improved stroke rate and rotation
  • Achieving a more balanced swim stroke

 We also organise monthly time trials (optional) so we can benchmark your fitness levels so that we can see how you're improving. We want to know your training and racing goals and personal best times across our set swim distances, so we can help you achieve them as effectively as possible!

Testimonials for group swim sessions:

 "Nick ran the swim sessions for David Lloyd Triathlon club for 6 months in that time he consistently applied his training methods and approach to swim training that enabled me and all of the other members of the tri club to reduce our 400m time trial times. More than that his sense of humour made these sessions enjoyable and the hour in the water fly by!

I can highly recommend him as a trainer/coach, you won’t be disappointed. “John Leysen

"Nick's training methods and approach to swim training enabled me and all of the other members of our triathlon club to reduce our 400m time trial times." Richard Wild
