Swim Smooth / Triathlon Clinics are based in the spectacular and peaceful mountains close to Alicante in Spain and provide a unique training opportunity to develop your swimming and triathlon performance and boost motivation.
A full Swim Smooth Clinic is included so that you can apply the new skills in the swim sessions after the ‘theory’ presented during the seminars
For more information email Martin for an outline schedule
Each athlete will have their stroke filmed in High Definition and then analysed (see video analysis for more information); the analysis will be provided on DVD for you to take away but the week’s coaching in the pool will focus specifically on areas that need to be addressed. Further pool sessions will cover pace awareness and Critical Swim Speed (CSS) / threshold training to really develop your speed and you will use the Finis Tempo Trainer Pro in both the stroke rate and pace modes to allow you to become familiar with the advantages of using this training aid. To complement the pool sessions there are coached open water sessions to develop confidence, starts, drafting, turning and racing skills.
Coached bike, run and strength / conditioning sessions are included for a challenging week of training. Bike rides will include the excellent roads in the local area that have often been used in La Vuelta Espana (three stages in 2010 used the immediate area that provided the most mountainous days of the 3-week tour). Guided and coached rides will also provide opportunities to stop and relax in local cafe’s – if required! There will also be the opportunity to use the on-site Wattbikes to assess both your performance (again to use as the basis for training when you get home) and your cycling efficiency.
Run sessions will use local on- and off-road routes, whilst triathlon specific strength and conditioning sessions will be coached within the grounds of Almoraig, the base for the training camp. These sessions will provide the athlete with the skills and knowledge required to enhance overall performance, using a range of equipment.
The camp will be limited to 4 athletes to ensure a high quality training week with Martin.
Clinics include accommodation and full board, all transport in Spain and coaching to provide excellent value; Note that flights are NOT included.
