I also used Urbanachek’s step test which I felt gave a much truer assessment.
Example: 4 x 5 x 200-yards with one-minute rest between sets.
Descend the intervals per set by 5 seconds.
If on the last set, the swimmer can make at least 3 within the intervals that equals the threshold.
- Set 1 @ 2:25
- Set 2@ 2:20
- Set 3 @ 2:15
- Set 4 @ 2:10
If the swimmer makes 3 then that gives a 1:05 threshold.
