Swimming World September 2021 Presents - How They Train with Rose Bowl Aquatics Trenton Julian - Progression of Times Chart

For a son of two U.S. national team members and a mother (Kristine Quance) who was an Olympic gold medalist and 1996 NCAA Swimmer of the Year, Trenton Julian has done a terrific job of authoring his own aquatic success.

A Cal-Berkeley super senior interdisciplinary studies major, Julian is a 13-time CSCAA All-American. At 2021 NCAAs, he garnered second in the 200 yard fly (1:38.85), third in the 200 free (1:31.55), fourth in the 500 free (4:09.78) and second as a member of Cal’s 800 free relay (1:31.41 leadoff).

Julian, a six-time Pac-12 Conference champion and a two-time national team member, then soldiered on to Omaha, where he registered the following results at the U.S. Wave II Olympic Trials: 100 meter fly (51.78, 4th-tie), 200 fly (1:56.35, 5th), 200 IM (2:04.49, 8th; 1:59.21 semifinals) and 200 free (1:47.50, 13th).

Then he closed out his summer with four individual firsts at the Speedo Summer Championships West. There he went 51.74 and 1:54.71 in the 100-200 meter fly, 1:47.83 in the 200 free and 1:57.86 in the 200 IM. His 51.25 fly leg on the 4×100 medley and 1:46.93 anchor on the 4×200 free relay (second in both) helped vault Rose Bowl to the men’s team title by 4.5 and 12 points, respectively, over California Aquatics and Irvine Novaquatics.

Julian’s early career was slowed by Trenton himself, says his dad and coach, Jeff. Reserved, strong-willed and a fierce competitor, “It actually took him some time to put that all together in a positive form. He’s always done things on ‘Trenton time,’ and as parents, we knew enough not to force it and let it be all on him.
“Sure enough, things changed around eighth-to-ninth grade when he decided he wanted it. Since then he has just enjoyed the process,” says Jeff. A soccer ankle injury and a later shoulder injury derailed his progress for a time, but the selection of Cal, where the drive to excel is a cultural norm, was a perfect fit for his personality.
“In many ways, Trenton’s push through challenging times has served him well,” says his dad/coach. “Swimming can be a tough sport, and he’s no stranger to the downs along the way. Those setbacks have only made him stronger and more determined.”

PACE TRAINING SET
Here is a typical pace training set leading into his 1:59 200 long course fly during his junior year in high school:

4 x 200 swim/kick/drill/swim
__
12 x 50 on 1:15 (25 power catch drill/25 build swim)
__
2 rounds:
• 4 x 50 on 1:00 (goal 200 pace)
• 100 on 2:00 (recovery)
• 4 x 50 on :55 (goal 200 pace)
• 100 on 2:00 (recovery)
• 4 x 50 on :50 (goal 200 pace)
• 100 on 2:00 (recovery)
• 4 x 50 on :45 (goal 200 pace)
• 300 on 6:00 (recovery)

COACH JULIAN: “Trenton would start at 29s and finish the set holding 30s.”
