i too have trained world class and professional athletes and you are right in saying its impossible to make sense of what you are doing based on limited info regardless of whether myself or someone else disagrees with your training philosophy... the exception would be heavy partials. i am more than curious as to why you are having anyone do these


simple answer

CNS & Confidence with weight, we dont do a tremendous amount of them, sometimes "bottom-up" from full position then adding weight & reducing range

kelly had her first meet this past weekend in over 18 months

swam insanely fast considering her small amount of time back in the water, Got Grand Prix cuts in her events

went a 1:02 in her 100 breast after a week of heavy lifting & not in swim shape yet that is rockin

so... sticking to the plan on getting strong as vinegar & blasting her energy system

should be able to grab some pics or vids on today's session

I would be interested to hear what kind of prehab/ activation/ whatever stuff you program in to make sure that the possible ayssemtries developed by swimming do not turn into chronic injuries of some sort.
Mostly what do you do to prep the body for what in most strokes is a hard eccentric with almost no concentric contraction?

What are her events ?
If she is a sprinter could you possibly ask if she does a specialised type of training because well my caoch is into old methods, no specialisation, everyone trains the same no matter their best distance ect.

been super busy... got 4 clients doing a fitness show this weekend

last heavy day Kelly hit 300 for a double squatting!! & 275 for a double pulling off blocks

we are making a push to bring bf% down too... not really focused on the actual % but shootimg for a triceps fold of 9 or better

to comment on JVivian's question It makes no sense to me why everyone would train the same regardless of event?....

I would say even athletes withjin the same event should train different depending on what weak links need to be addressed - pure sprinter???? get freaky strong & explosive, I argue that to a point.. less water time is important for a pure sprinter... as in 50m only

James sure caused a clusterfuck. I admire your methods, they seem sound. I do heavy partials for the same reason, it also seem to allow me to stress my upper back musculature, posture, and spinal flexibility. Kelly is exactly what I imagine a professional athlete would look like training. She executes very well, good luck in the future.
