I posted back in January looking for a strength program, and Phil helped me out. I ended up getting a program from ElitFTS (the Beginners training manual) and im about to be at the end of it soon. Right now I am swimming again for fun/ for any 18 and older comps that come up.
I have one comming up in about 2 weeks. and I"m pretty focused on it right now.
The only problem with everything is that I’m wondering whats the best way to go about strength training and swimming at the same time. I dont’ want to lose the foundation I have just built, yet I don’t want to stop swimming. I dont’ know if i’m being stupid or naive, but I am a little worried that I will have a harder time gaining strength when im swimming 2 hours practices.
The other question is, the EliteFTS manual has got me into deadlifting, benching, and squating. I love them more than any other excercise, and it’s all I want to really focus on. When will I be reaching the points of overtraining? As in if I train them twice a week, but without a Dynamic day… is it bad news?
I’m just looking for some advice as to where to start when planning a program for when this one is over. I love doing Dynamic and Maximum effort day but I kind of want to train more than 4 days of the week.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
