In Louisville, Kentucky, Holden Smith trains as a member of the Race Pace Club. Holden, a junior in high school, was coached by his father, Kenny, for 3 years using USRPT. For the last year and a half, he has done a combination of USRPT and more traditional training with University of Louisville NCAA Champions Carlos Almeida (200 Breast, 2012) and Joao de Lucca (200 free, 2013/2014 & 100 free, 2014). They primarily train at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary pool in Louisville.
While I was there, Joao had written dryland and wetland workouts for Holden. His dryland routine included stretching and warmups, then some extensive core-work and explosive motions.
In the pool, Holden was working on his freestyle/backstroke speed, with a main set as follows:
3×200 A3 Paddles 2:30
