This course begins with the conception of Race-Pace Training in the 1960s and works it way forward to the present model of USRPT being used at pools all around the world today.
We will travel through history to see how key pieces of research came together in various decades to allow Dr. Brent Rushall to develop the revolutionary training method now known as Ultra-Short Race-Pace Training.
You will see multiple USRPT sets written and explained and you will also write your own USRPT set in Section 2 of this course. There are also a few quizzes in this course to give you opportunities to check your knowledge.
Whether you are a coach parent or swimmer, at the end of this course you will definitely be able to write and manage your own Ultra-Short Race-Pace Training workouts on your own
The only requirement for this course an open mind to question what you think you know.
