Sample text

You now know the basics of using a pace clock, enough to understand the sample workouts in chapter 9.  You will have to focus your attention on these fibers in your training program in order to keep them.  Aerobic capacity improves substantially with training, at any age. Glycolysis: also known as the lactic acid or anaerobic lactate system.  The glycolytic system improves substantially with training, at any age.  The ATP­PCr system is highly dependent upon the genetically determined characteristics of the muscle fiber and responds only slightly to training.

Since each individual is different and responds differently to a training stimulus, he or she needs to recognize when it's necessary to apply more training stress and when it's necessary to back off.  We need a plan that will program in periods of recovery.  The basic concepts associated with periodized training are not new.  We'll present only those concepts of this complicated subject that will help us design a structured training program for the past­50 swimmer. The central theme of periodized training is that optimal performance cannot be obtained by stressing the body with the same training stimulus day in and day out.

Glycolysis: also known as the lactic acid or anaerobic lactate system.  The glycolytic system improves substantially with training, at any age.  The ATP­PCr system is highly dependent upon the genetically determined characteristics of the muscle fiber and responds only slightly to training.  The swimmers that can generate the most power are the ones that perform the best.  Clearly, you must keep power in mind when you design your training program.  The nomenclature may vary from reference to reference, but the basic concepts are the same.
