If you’ve tuned into any of our recent videos, you’ll know the importance of stroke rate.

When you race competitions it’s something that is often forgotten about. Instead we look at splits, technique, positioning, etc but rarely check stroke rate.

Your coach or training partner can do it with a reliable swimming stopwatch or you can check it yourself  if you have your race filmed. In training it’s much easier with a FINIS Tempo Trainer.

I created a PDF document with the stroke rates of the Top 8 Swimmers In The 2012 US Olympic Trials for all events.

It shows the range and difference between swimmers and gives good target stroke rate for you to aim for in training.

In our online coaching program I just added a training workout that we’re using to find the optimum stroke rate for individual swimmers.
