Bob Bowman's Training Philosophy

Post by Captainblood » Fri Jun 20, 2014 8:58 am

From an article about Michael Phelps and Bob Bowman's elite training group.  This reminds me of Tinman's philosophy.  I would love to take a look at his year program and see how he maps out a training plan.

"All of these swimmers came to the North Baltimore Aquatic Club from around the country and around the globe to work under the laser-focused Bowman, who has mastered the tricky art of building daily workouts into a one-year plan, and extrapolating from there to a four-year master vision.

"Bob's mantra is long-term development," says Keenan Robinson, who oversees NBAC's dryland program. "His ability to write a seasonal and quadrennial plan is unparalleled in our sport. It makes him very successful, but it also makes him one of the hardest coaches to train for. In an environment of instant gratification, training for something months or years away can be tough. But Bob has never had a bad Olympic Trials."
