Nov 20, 2017 – Hamilton Aquatics – HR/Vo2

A typical Monday afternoon workout with our Elite Squad (aged 15-18). The warm-up is a general loosen, activating different parts of the body, before going into some variable speed work – all swimmers have skills targets throughout.

The main set is aimed at hitting the Vo2 zone and achieving a high intensity/heart rate. The mid distance swimmers go through all 3 rounds, but the sprinters only go 1 round, before going into some 100 race pace. Most swimmers swim as their best stroke, with IM swimmers switching in stroke blocks. With two coaches, it is easy to split the group and manage different needs from the swimmers.
