Performance physiology (swimming) is offered through the integrated expertise provided through our partnership with the Sport Ireland Institute and world leading experts in the National Centre (Dublin). This is implemented through a structured programme of training which is differentiated, based on the individual needs of the athlete according to their age, gender and preferred racing event(s). While training prescription is one important part of the physiological puzzle, the other key component is in assessing the ability of the athlete to be able to tolerate training load. With this information at hand, we are able to make informed coaching decisions which will maintain an effective training stress balance (TSB). In support of this, we have partnered with HRV4Training to provide this insight and ensure that we remain at the forefront of athlete monitoring, vital to maximising the potential of our nation’s swimmers.
