Characteristics of an Effective Workout

CHARACTERISTICS OF AN EFFECTIVE WORKOUT

HIGH EXPECTATIONS

Expect to achieve high levels of competence and you will receive greater output..

PURPOSE ORIENTED

Each set serves a purpose. Ask yourself what is. What value is being added? How is it helping YOUR stroke? For more advanced swimmers, what is it doing for your conditioning and race strategy? The first step is admitting you don't know what you don't know!

ABILITY TO FOCUS

Actively participate in workouts. Minimal amount of time spent on wall and sitting out sets. Come prepared. Each lap counts! One stroke at a time.

MINIMUM TIME MICROMANAGING

Team rules and practice expectations are well known and adhered to by all swimmers.

STRONG ADMINISTRATIVE SUPPORT AND LEADERSHIP

Strong support from club administration with assistance in upholding club, LSC and USA Swimming policies

QUIET, SAFE, PLEASANT PRACTICE ENVIRONMENT

Practice is setup in an environment that is conducive to learning and growing in swimming.

SMILES ALL AROUND, EVEN WHEN CHALLENGED

You can't have sound fundamentals without FUN. Period.
