SARASOTA, Fla. — U.S. Masters Swimming has launched its Workout Library, a revamped member benefit that contains hundreds of workouts designed exclusively for its members by expert coaches, the organization announced on Thursday.
The Workout Library will allow USMS members to filter workouts by the course they’re swimming in, their desired practice distance, and types of sets they want to do.
Once members find the perfect workout for them, they can easily print it to bring with them to the pool. They can also subscribe to a specific workout and receive the upcoming week’s workouts emailed to them each Monday morning. Members can also customize their workouts via USMS’s integration with Swim.com and send those workouts to their smartwatch or log them on the Swim.com app.
“Many of our members train by themselves or aren’t able to practice with their Masters programs because of the novel coronavirus,” says Dawson Hughes, USMS’s chief executive officer. “We hope they’ll be able to use this new member benefit to train safely and stay motivated. These workouts will be in an easy-to-use format that our wide range of members will enjoy.”
USMS’s Workout Library has seven types of workouts: basic, sprint, high-volume, stroke and IM, open water, triathlon, and low-volume/limited mobility. USMS’s new Workout Library can be accessed at usms.org/workout-library.
Swimmers interested in gaining access to these workouts can join or renew their USMS memberships at usms.org/join-usms/join-or-
