What do I need to do to find my CSS time.
To find your CSS time you will need to record your times for a 400m and 200m swims in the same swim session. . Enter these times into our CSS calculator on this page. Then use the calculated time in your training to improve your swim times.
Session to measure your CSS time,
Once you have your times, work with your coach to define suitable training sessions where you can use your CSS times to then improve that swim endurance. Remember to check your CSS times every now and then so that you can adjust sessions as you improve. Again talk with your coach to determine how regular you check the times.
