Saturday Swim Session: 8 Week Fitness Swim Training Plan Week 1

I’ve been working on a new Fitness Swim Training Plan to improve your swimming over 8 weeks. The sessions for this programme between 1,500m and 2,100m long and there are three sessions each week. I’ve got variations of the training plan for people who can complete four or five swims each week, as well as for people who can only fit two swims per week. As well as a 12, 16 and 20 week variation of the programme. These are the sessions for the first week.

Saturday Swim Session: Sprints & Stamina

Within this session I’ve included some longer reps for stamina and some shorter reps to build your sprint speed. This session is perfect for Ironman and Olympic distance triathletes or people doing longer Ocean Swims.

Saturday Swim Session: More 200’s

200m is a great distance to build elements of both stamina and speed. Not pure speed like for a 25m or 50m sprint but sustained speed for longer events. This session is perfect for Ironman and Olympic distance triathletes or people doing longer Ocean Swims.
