This plan is modeled after the popular Masters swimming program that Adam Hodges coached at the University of Colorado in Boulder. It is ideal for Masters swimmers, triathletes, and fitness swimmers accustomed to swimming three times per week with weekly yardage ranging from 8,000-13,000 yards.
The plan begins with a focus on aerobic development and gradually shifts towards higher intensity training. Time trials are scheduled at the end of each phase. The training is designed to peak an athlete for a final time trial or race at the end of the 16 weeks.
