ASCA THOUGHT OF THE DAY: Eddie Reese on Age Group Development

“If you take a 12/13 year old and you do something very aerobic for two years, you’ll get a lot more out of that than when they are 20/21. That’s just human beings and the windows where we can develop certain capacities. So if you don’t do that, you’ve missed it. I feel like we are training much to specifically with our younger swimmers. They need the aerobic work because that is what sets them up for real, real big improvement later on in life. You skip that, you limit their capacity to reach where they might have gotten to, if they had done the Aerobic work.”
