Dutch Team in Training

As the Dutch Team continue their stay in the beautiful city of Phuket, we asked what kind of training each swimmer went through on a regular basis.  We were told that each camp had its own set routine, and that the Dutch team’s was as follows:

Monday and Tuesday:

Morning: Swim training from 9:00-11:00am, followed by strength or dry-land training. Dry-land training is important, as it helps improve strength and stamina. Cardiovascular endurance, such as running, increases the ability of the heart and lungs.
Afternoon: Group strength (push-ups . swim cords), followed by Swim training from 5:00-7:00pm.

Wednesday:

Morning: Swim training from 9:00-11:00am, followed by strength or dry-land training.
Afternoon: The team is free to do what he/she wants. This may be to take extra rest time (which is vital to a good recovery),  or activities, such as visting the beach or a nearby town.

Thursday and Friday:

Morning: Swim training from 9:00-11:00am, followed by strength or dry-land training
Afternoon: Group strength, followed by Swim training from 5:00-7:00pm

Saturday & Sunday:

Saturday Morning: Swim training from 9:00-11:00am, followed by strength or dry-land training
Saturday Afternoon & Sunday: Free
