Well, I created it for a few reasons.
- Synchro swimmers often get a 2-week break in December in which there is no training and sometimes they get one or more weeks off in March/April. The body does need time to recover, however taking 2-weeks off with no deliberate training can put you 6 WEEKS BEHIND. 2 weeks behind due to no training, 2 weeks of lost training opportunity and 2 weeks that someone else has gained on you if they have trained.
- Without a plan we are all less likely to follow through on our intentions.
- Swimmers can get stronger in key areas in synchro WITHOUT having to get into the pool during a break.
- When the break is over the first practices back will not feel as bad and training over the break may prevent some injuries.
