The KayakPro® SwimFast 9-Week optimized training plan uses 3 x main training workouts to achieve improvement: each workout having a different training target. It also incorporates a Critical Power test [CP] to determine a base line of fitness / strength levels. Used within the workout and be able to show, CP levels and empirical improvement.
The 9-week plan is a suggested guide rather than being set-in-stone but offers a targeted structure and framework which will lead to improvement. Before starting any training regimen please view and pay attention the Disclaimer notice.
Sample base-line / familiarization workouts are here below, Endurance, Technique and Strength. You can use these as your starting point.
Ideally, try to get three rotational workouts per week (an endurance, a technique, and a strength session), with at least one day of recovery between each session. Repeat these workouts for at least three weeks, in each block.
If a workout is too hard, feel free to shorten the sets, increase the rest intervals or lower the flywheel resistance.
Never compromise form and technique (high elbow catch and acceleration through the pull).
When training on your SwimFast using the 9-week plan, remember to adopt and maintain the basics of good technique using EVF Early vertical forearm. Only Perfect Practice make Perfect!
