Subject: Maffetone and masters swimming
Just starting to try the maf method for my running and biking ... However just signed up for a new gym with a masters swim class, so the question is will the hard swim workouts screw up my attempt at maf? Thanks for the help

No they will not (assuming you mean because you'll be over your "aerobic" heart rate).

Yes, sorry that is what I was talking about swimming cranks the heartrate for me and will put me over the maf heartrate. I'm new to swimming and think the masters swimming will really help so I don't really want to skip out. Thanks for the response.

Is beating yourself up on intervals you can barely maintain the best way to get the most out of your swim workout?

Can you tell me how my LT and V02 max have not decreased after 8 months of absolutely no speedwork? I did very minimal running up until February 2005.

Sometimes the best way to master something is to be around people who are masters of it. For non-swimmers - there is the Master’s Swim group.

The most common question I hear in the triathlete world about the mysteries of swimming efficiently usually involves something with breathing.

Work your weakness. In the sport of triathlon, most coaches agree that you should spend the most time working on your weakest of the three sports. For many of you this will be swimming!

Most of us in the triathlon world are concerned with more than just fat burning. There are certain situations when it’s appropriate to use fins during a workout.
