Release provided to SwimSwam courtesy of W Ross Macdonald Swimming:
Dr. Brent Rushall is coming to Brantford March 22-23, 2014 to present a clinic on Ultra Short Race Pace Training. Dr. Rushall will also cover many key aspects of technical development for swimmers.
Rushall believes, and research supports that long accepted training methodologies for competitive swimming are “largely irrelevant” – even detrimental to swimming performance. He believes that relying on stroke drills to “teach” swimming technique is responsible for the obvious lack of technical development in a majority of the programs in North America.
Ultra Short Race Pace Training (USRPT) is a training methodology that focuses on maximizing training volumes at event specific race pace. The 2 day clinic will present an alternative to currently accepted teaching and training programs for competitive swimming.
The clinic will offer an early look at what Rushall (and WRMS staff ) believes is the future of training for competitive swimmers. The clinic will include plenty of time for what is expected to be a lively and sometimes heated discussion of the benefits of USRPT.
The clinic is focused on USRPT for Coaches but Senior Swimmers and Parents are welcome to attend.
