Feb 9, 2017 – NTSC – Senior High Performance – Tempo Trainers

Day after test sets – I wanted to do something fun. So we did a workout with tempo trainers to work on learning how to correlate tempo with time.

Understanding that sometimes faster arms don’t mean faster times. After the athletes recorded their tempos on the board, we talked about how those tempos (I use one beat per stroke) felt relative to time.
