CSS Time Trial & Testing New Threshold

Hi gang!

Last night, the squad had Time Trial taken to estimate their swim threshold pace or in another word, CSS (Critical Swim Speed). Right after I acquire the data in Set 1, I tested the swimmers with their new CSS in Set 2. Here is the result of CSS Time Trial.

Full Data of CSS Test

Yaroslav has improved his CSS from 2:01/100M since last January 06 to 1:56/100M. Steven 1st CSS test is 1:56/100M while KC and Rizwan is 2:29/100M - 2:34/100M.

Note: CSS/ Threshold test is a test to measure your average swim speed within the range of 400M-3.8K. This test is a shorter version of you swimming for 1.9K / 3.8K distance which is challenging to perform in monthly basis. Learn more about css training here http://www.swimsmooth.com/training.html.
