Helpful guide to swimming training plans

As we have just started another year I thought it would be good to offer a little help to some of the abbreviations the coaches may use on the whiteboards or session plans for swimming.

Here are some (not all) abbreviations.

 

FC – Front Crawl

NFC – No Front Crawl

OC – Own choice

BS – Breast Stroke

Back – Back Stroke

BF – Butterfly

IM – Individual Medley (Not Iron Man)

On- includes rest ie 200 on 2.10

RI or R – Rest interval ie RI 15 is 15 seconds rest

N/S – negative split, ie do second half faster than first

Progressive – getting faster through the set.

 

Hopefully this will help you make sense of the training plans each week.
