Club/Author Info:TAT has produced many National finalists and National team members. TAT has been present in the past 4 years at Canada Games, Pan Pac Games, Commonwealth games, US Open, World Cup III, and Olympic Trials. TAT is a rather small sized club with unparallel determination. So far in my swimming career this has been my favourite workout ever. It hits all the basics for breast. I recently came 7th at 1998 World Cup III and 13th in my 200 breast at 1998 US Open.

Main Set This is my all time favourite set swimming 5 years at the national level. It really works the stroke and especially the mental ability! don't get discouraged from this set, as it is a mental challenge!!

The 50's are taken from dividing your 200 breast by 4 to get an average 50 time. then the first roud is +2 second of that avg time, then +1 of avg time, then at your avg time, then minus 1 sec. of your avg time)
