Practice + Pancakes: Louisville Throws Down on VO-Tuesday

FORM is swim goggles with a smart display. FORM is a sports technology company with a simple mission: to break down the barriers between what swimming is and what it could be.

After going to practice with Indiana, SwimSwam drove down the road to Louisville, where we filmed the cardinals Tuesday PM workout. On Tuesdays, Louisville has what they call “VO-Tuesdays”, aka they do a VO2 set. The team went through this main set 3 times. For the girls who were getting ready for the SMU classic, they built the 1st round, went hard on the 2nd round, and chilled the 3rd round.

This week’s set was simple, but got the job done in making everyone go fast and be in pain while doing it.

what were the 500 times????


I think I heard 4:29. Might have been 4:27


4:27 and 4:28 👀


Who was the younger looking distance swimmer, I’m assuming the guy winning most races was Marcelo Acosta?


Acosta was the lead guy. I think other guy was Ilia (starts with an I) Sibirtsev their Freshman from Russia with some pretty fast LC times. Don’t think it was T.C. and heard something like Ilia when he finished 500.


Putting a tech suit on was the workout
