The article presents information on scientifically based seasonal training design for swimmers. The goal of every coach is to have his or her athletes swim their fastest at the peak of competition. Ideally, daily and weekly workload volumes should correspond to the training condition of the individual swimmers. To evaluate the swimmers' level of conditioning, swimming test sets should be done on a regular basis. Because younger swimmers will be able to build aerobic and anaerobic work capacity earlier in a season, coaches may design more seasons for younger swimmers within the training year. INSET: SEASONAL TRAINING DESIGN: In Review.
