Sustained power. We all want it. How do we get it?

Get the ANT+ monitor.

The ability to get data from the Vasa Swim Ergometer into a platform was a major breakthrough. That happened with power meters for other sports, but before the Vasa Swim Erg, never in swimming. Open sourcing it changed the game. It’s where things are headed. Period. The Swim Erg has so much application for open water swimmers. I can get them to do 10-15 minutes on the Erg and derive a lot of value from that. Most swimmers don’t lack aerobic power, they lack muscle endurance. And the Erg is hands-down the best way to do that. ~Tim Crowley
