Road to Hawaii – Ironman Workouts

This week I started working with Mike Aigroz, world class Swiss triathlete and Ironman athlete. He’s getting ready to leave for Hawaii in about 10 days to get ready for the big show. He has been doing his swim training with Vevey Natation for a while now but never really asked for specific help. He approached me last week, asking if I were interested in helping him with his swimming before his departure for Hawaii.

3×3 Training Plan – Get Back in Swimming Shape

I recently got contacted by a friend who needed a plan to get back in the pool after some time off. So I came up with this 3 workouts plan where each workout has 3 options for the main set. This will allow to adapt your workout on how you feel and how you shape up on a daily basis. If you cycle through this once, it will add up to a 3 week plan (with 3 workouts a week). This should allow enough time to get back in swimming shape working on aerobic capacity, kicking and of course drills and technique. You can get the 3x3SwimPlan as a PDF file on ProSwimWorkouts.

Triathlon Swimming Workout

Last week one of the local Masters swimmer had a friend visiting who’s into Triathlon. He started out last year and I gave him a couple private lessons back then. So when he came back last week, he asked me if I could come up with a “triathlon” specific workout for him. There’s probably no such thing as a triathlon specific swimming workout other than actually being out in the open water. But I think this quick workout covers most of the important parts you would like to work on. You can download the workout as a PDF file on ProSwimWorkouts.

Workout Thursday, January 13, 2011

Last Thursday I went to Maggligen for a workout with one of my former teammates and oldest swimming friends. His team was away for a meet and he went through some hard training earlier in the week so it was sort of a recovery workout with some smooth build swims. I’m thinking about making a subscription based workouts stream available, so I though you might like this one in the meantime. Download the workout as a PDF on
