oops! you already had DPS

This from one of Terry's posts:
"Wingspan Conversion factor--ratio of wingspan to height." - can't figure whether it's wingspan over height or height over wingspan though :(

I know this would be an expansion of your list into a dictionary but ... in the Garmin literature they define a stroke as being counted "every time the watch arm completes a full cycle". This seems to be half that used in other definitions where a stroke is defined as a cycle of either arm. Is there any way to make it clear which definition is being used (at least here)?

Just created a new acronyme (for you ;-) ). You may do it by yourself, so it would pop up to the top soon.

There are some question marks, can you remove them?

Best regards,
Werner

I think you're doing a great job Werner. Sadly though I'd love to help I can't help :( You're the only person who can edit your posts (as this isn't a wiki).

p.s I can't see the question marks. Looks good to me :) Great stuff.

here's more:

LTHR - Lactate Threshold Heart Rate
CNS - central nervous system

What?!? From a search this seems to be the first time the phrase "Lactate Threshold Heart Rate" has appeared on these forums. I'm wondering if it's helpful here to expand the definition of swimming acronyms to include medical ones?

i might have used "LT HR" vs. "LTHR" or maybe i thought i have used it. this is a medical term but more commonly encountered in training circles. it refers to the HR at which you reach your LT, used mostly if you're training via HR.

WFEGb 09-17-2013 06:39 PM

Hello CoachDavidShen, hello Talvi,

thanks for your "list-work"!

Any hints for replacing the question marks?

Regards,
Werner

Talvi 09-18-2013 12:54 PM

@CoachDavidShen: I use a HR monitor (only the Poolmate HR works u/w though) but have no idea of how to read / calculate etc my lactate threshold

@Werner: re those questionmarked acronyms you've got:
EVL may have been a typo?
I use FB to mean Facebook (sorry)
FWIW = For What It's Worth (FYI = For Your Information, etc etc)
I don't know if SB = Season's Best

Oh yes, how about MET? It stands for Metabolic Equivalent of Task and is the basis on which exercise monitors (in sports watches, fitness equipment etc) assess how many calories have been burned in a task. As far as I can tell it's a pretty unsubstantiated form of measurement, but that's what's being fed back to folk as fact.

p.s presumably Tbc means To Be Completed ? ;)

Great stuff

WFEGb 09-18-2013 03:32 PM

Hello Talvi,

thanks again. Put your hints into the list.

Once upon a time I was told tbc as "to be continued" but that's very long ago; nobody even knew what PCs or the Internet would be...

Best regards,
Werner

PS: To the youngsters in the forum: Yes it was possible to survive at those times... How we could survive without TI is still an unsolved miracle...

LoL and of course, yes, I remember now and am surprised that I'd forgotten! tbc used to be quite commonplace. The "unsolved miracle" is something extraordinary indeed. Why did we insist on relentlesssly hitting our heads against the brick wall in the hope that one day we'd enjoy doing it?!? I guess the idea was that to conquer our fears we need only to suffer more! roflol

to be honest, the concept of LTHR, or even HR in swimming is relatively new as only recently have devices come on the market to enable decent readings of HR while swimming. but even then, how can you even take a peek at your HR when you're in the middle of swimming a lap and when it's on your wrist? (FINIS's audible HR monitor is more interesting in this regard).

people have used CSS or Critical Swim Speed in some circles but for TI, it's not as useful as training for swimming fast because in most instances means you shouldn't be anywhere close to a HR where you'll flame out shortly (ie. at LT HR).

For sprint swim training and for elites, managing effort (or more exactly, your effort at which you approach your LT) will be a factor as when you get your swim form skill maximized, then the only thing left to optimize is holding your swim form and efficiency while increasing effort.

Talvi 12-06-2013 06:29 PM

Hi Werner

Here's another one: "BR" I can't help with what it means though, Charles Couturier uses it.

EDIT:
Charles says it means Body Roll :)

WFEGb 12-06-2013 08:17 PM

Hello Talvi,

thank you! I'd read the thread and put it in as "Body Rotation..."
Will correct it at once.

Best regards,
Werner

No probs :) What is a difference between rotation and roll you're seeing Werner?

WFEGb 12-07-2013 01:13 PM

Hello Talvi,

Body Roll seems a little bit on a leisure side and

Body Rotation sounds more physical :-)

But it's clearly open: English/American is not my native language...

Last but not least it is Charles' decision.

Best regards,
Werner

Richardsk 12-15-2013 11:03 AM

Hi Werner

umph or oomph is not an acronym but is onomatopoeia for the involuntary grunt caused by exertion, and hence loosely used for the idea of exertion or force. A well-known advocate of a forceful catch refers to it as 'umph at the front'.

WFEGb 12-15-2013 11:21 PM

Hello Richardsk,

umph-oomph .... thank you very much. I'll push them out, including Quotation marks :-)

Best regards,
Werner

Talvi 05-17-2014 09:45 AM

Hunted for this thread today looking for a definition of CSS (normally Critical Swim Speed I think though combat swimming sounds fun!), so thanks Werner for putting the glossary together. I just wish Terry would make it a sticky thread! :)

While I'm here I thought I'd extract the entries you have question marks against and add some input fwiw

SDI: Speed Decline Index (?)
TMMV: ??
w/s: ???

I think the question marks for FB and OR could be got rid of. The s2bf entry could be deleted imo.
NLP often means Neuro Linguistic Programming (a very commercially successful bit of scientific mumbo jumbo)
OCD can refer to Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
OMG and OWS I have no alternative to the ones you give, but I wouldn't encourage the use of OWS so I'd delete it! :D
ROI often means Return on Investment (I've a bad feeling I'm responsible for introducing some of these).

Thanks again

WFEGb 05-17-2014 03:46 PM

Hi Talvi,

thanks for your hints... put them in at once...

Best regards,
Werner

WFEGb 06-12-2015 07:10 AM

Excuse this post...
 
Hello,

please excuse this post. It's just to push this thread up the the first page. Maybe it's helpflul for a new member... (Very rare additions in last time.)

Best regards,
Werner

Talvi 06-19-2015 08:10 PM

Good idea Werner :)

Talvi 06-29-2015 11:01 AM

Congratulations on becoming sticky!!

And can anyone show me to an explanation of RPE calculation? erry uses numbers like 2.5 etc for RPE so how does he calculate that etc?

AWP 06-29-2015 06:10 PM

Talvi
I believe the answer lies in the term "perceived" (Rate of Perceived Effort), it will be dependent on skill level, mental/physical fitness... on a scale of 1-5, 1 being easiest 5 being hardest... Terry's experience level allows him to determine this quite 'naturally'. The more one practices deep observation in their own swimming the more natural it will become to determine your own effort levels, and the more attuned and skilled you become you'll see change in those levels; what was once very difficult, let's say, may become quite comfortable.

Talvi 06-29-2015 07:39 PM

Thanks AWP.
