Although American Record holder and distance star Zane Grothe has been quietly building his sprint speed to prepare for a freeestyle sweep in 2020, his training remains firmly planted in distance workouts like the two below. These were done in the lead up to the Mesa Pro Swim Series, where Zane took gold in the 1500 and 800 and silver in the 400 and 200, performances which put him tied with Chase Kalisz for the Series’ points lead. With a week of sets like these from Coach Mike Westphal at Indiana it’s amazing he even finished the races.
