Vetenskapen om mättat fett: En stor fet överraskning?

Mättat fett har ingen betydande roll i hjärtsjukdom. Tron att mättat fett skulle vara farligt har sedan början saknat bevis och moderna genomgångar av all forskning visar att det varit ett misstag. Här är en utmärkt ny artikel i ämnet från en av Englands största tidningar: The Independent: The science of saturated fat: A big fat […]

At Swim Smooth, one of the things we're most pleased about is how many people are using CSS to improve the training side of their swimming preparation*. We've heard from so many of you about how you've taken 5 or 10 seconds per 100m off your swim times after just a couple of months of CSS training - which is fantastic!

For more about CSS and see the calculator here: www.swimsmooth.com/training

One of the most common questions we receive about the CSS calculation is that if you keep your 400m pace the same but get faster over 200m then your CSS pace actually gets slower! This seems quite counter-intuitive that you are getting faster and yet your CSS pace is getting slower - in fact we get a lot of emails from swimmers (and coaches) telling us the calculator is broken and we need to fix it in a hurry!

The calculator is actually right though and is just telling us something interesting about fitness which is very relevant to how you should train. The calculation looks at the rate of drop-off between your 200m and your 400m times to predict what you would do over a longer distance closer to CSS pace (e.g. 1500m). So someone who is very quick over 200m but dies a little over 400m will have a slower CSS than someone who is much more evenly paced, even if the first swimmers times are quicker combined.

Mind bending isn't it? What the test is assessing is whether your current fitness is more attuned to sprinting or distance swimming. If you have a large drop off in pace from the 200m to the 400m then this suggests you're more sprint-based and you will be significantly slower over 1500m. If you have little drop off between the 200m and 400m then you're well trained for distance swimming and you will be able to swim 1500m at only a slightly slower pace than 400m.

If you think about it, this has to be the case otherwise the best sprinters in the world would also be the best distance swimmers in the world and vice-versa. You can see this explained more visually here:



Of course if you're a triathlete or open water swimmer then you are aiming to be fast over longer distances - developing your diesel engine. If your CSS is getting slower it could be you have been inconsistent with your training or you could be doing too much sprint training (very fast with long recoveries) and not enough CSS type training (not quite as fast but with short recoveries).

Example Athlete: Michael Japp

Michael has improved both his 400m and his 200m times since May, which is great news. However, his CSS has slowed by 1 second per 100m - how so? Michael improved his 400m by 5 seconds but his 200m by 7 seconds. As the 200m is much shorter, this means his speed improved relatively much more over 200m than 400m which is symptomatic of biasing training towards very fast, short intervals with lots of rest and recovery rather than longer intervals at around CSS pace.

In Michael's case being of a very strong athletic background we felt that his anaerobic system has come back to life a little quicker than his aerobic endurance and recommended more CSS training and even some "tough love" Red Mist endurance sets: www.feelforthewater.com/2012/07/red-mist-set.html

Gaming CSS

There's even been some discussion recently about how you can "game the test" in order to get a better CSS result. You might do this by swimming deliberately slowly over the 200m which would give you a better CSS pace but this would be totally pointless as the whole idea of the test is to get a real picture of your current fitness so that you can train accurately going forwards.

Gaming the test will only see you having to target unrealistic CSS target times in training which will ruin the quality of your training - so please don't do it! Both the 200m and 400m time trials have to be maximum effort but they still need to be well-paced to yield your best times. This in itself can be confusing - how can an all-out effort be well paced? See our classic Gradual Crescendo post here: www.feelforthewater.com/2013/05/the-gradual-crescendo.html

Swim Smooth!

* Swim Smooth didn't invent the CSS calculation but we are huge fans and advocates of using it to help swimmers train better. To improve the accuracy of this training try doing it in conjunction with a Tempo Trainer Pro to set your training paces.

Here's a neat swim session to work on the rhythm of your stroke. It's a lot of fun to try, in fact many of the Swim Smooth squad in Perth said it was probably the best squad session they've ever swum - wow!

If you've had a bit of a lay-off from swimming or feel a bit stagnant in your training then this is the perfect session to kick-start things again.

Un-Funk Your Swimming

You will need a Finis Tempo Trainer Pro for this session and also know how to perform the Scull #1, Doggy Paddle and Javelin Drills.

Warmup

Wear fins for the Javelin drill and take them off for the freestyle 100s:

100m Javelin Drill
100m Freestyle breathing every 3 strokes
100m Javelin Drill
100m Freestyle breathing left every 4 strokes
100m Javelin Drill
100m Freestyle breathing every 6 strokes (right on way up the pool, left on way back down)
100m Javelin Drill
100m Freestyle breathing every 7 strokes
100m Javelin Drill
100m Freestyle breathing every 6 strokes (right on way up the pool, left on way back down)
100m Javelin Drill
100m Freestyle breathing right every 4 strokes
100m Javelin Drill
100m Freestyle breathing every 3 strokes
100m Javelin Drill

Then with Tempo Trainer Pro in Mode 3:
2x 50m at 55 SPM
2x 50m at 65 SPM
2x 50m at 75 SPM
2x 50m at 85 SPM
2x 50m at 75 SPM
2x 50m at 65 SPM
2x 50m at 55 SPM
Swim each 50m as:

12½m Scull #1
+ 12½m Doggy Paddle
+ 25m Freestyle to stroke rate

Take 5 seconds rest after every 50m.
The range 55 to 85 SPM will suit most swimmers but if you are an Overglider or Bambino with a low stroke rate, reduce all stroke rates by 10 SPM.

Lastly:

Pick what stroke rate felt 'optimal' from the previous set. This doesn't have to be exactly 55 or 65 etc - it could be 58 or 63 etc.

Now swim:

200m at this self-selected stroke rate
2 or 4x 50m at 2 SPM below
2 or 4x 50m at 2 SPM above

What do you notice? What feels good?



Remember when it comes to rhythm don't over-think it - FEEL IT!

Swim Smooth!
