Saturday Swim Session: Cameron McEvoy – The Hardest Sets Ever #1

Com Games Gold medalist & Olympic Bronze medalist, Cameron McEvoy has swum some tough sets during his career, over the next few weeks I’m going expose you to a number of his toughest training sets (and variations for mere mortals).

Each Saturday I will post a Swim Session, most weeks I will load three options up for you to do. Option A is for swimmers who are after a workout between 1,000 & 2,000 metres. Option B is for swimmers who are after a workout between 2,000 & 3,000m and Option C will be greater than 3,000m.

The inspiration for today’s workout comes from an article by Olivier Poirier-Leroy at YourSwimLog.com, you can read the full article here.

  • 18x 400m on 5:00min
    • 6 F/S
    • 6 F/S/Bk
    • 6 F/S/Fly

The Main Set is made up of eighteen reps of 400m. Start each rep every five minutes. The first six reps swim Freestyle. The next six reps are swum as 200m Freestyle, straight into another 200m of Backstroke. The final six swim as 200m Freestyle and 200m Butterfly. Yep, you read right Butterfly!!!!
