Thanks for the replies.
I’m thinking the hardest thing will be trying to lift heavy whilst swimming high volumes, hence why I was thinking about applying RTS to the lifting part of my program. I should add at this point that I work shifts that change from week to week hence even more reason why I’m thinking about trying to use the RTS method.
The swimming part I will have to follow a set out program as I have no experience of long distance swimming.
The basic template I was thinking of involves trying to limit how often I lift and swim on the same days.
So basically something like this:
Swim - drill sets (low intensity)
I’ve taken direct shoulder work out, as I reckon there’s enough shoulder work with all the swimming. I might also be content with taking out the pull ups and rows. It depends how hard the swimming is.
I think the Bench and Squat variations should be light as it might be too much to lift heavy twice a week.
Anyway, if you guys want to critique that or have any suggestions that would be great.
