Jun 13, 2017 – NTSC – High Performance – Chutes and Sprints

This workout is generated to increase workload in a short period of time while focusing on finishes and racing at the end of fatigue.

I like to make athletes tired, then make them race more. Using chutes to accelerate sprint work.

Additional Comments:
Another piece is to make sure the athletes stay on form and stroke count throughout the workout, as well as work on the perfecting both technical and aggressive finish. It took longer than expected, but the kids did a great job.
