SPEED SET: 200
No fins. Swim twice through the following — all freestyle.
4 X 25 on :10 rest interval
1st 25: First 6 strokes are a “cycle burst,” which means really fast with high turnover. Then cruise EZ to the end of the length.
2nd 25: First 8 strokes are a cycle burst
3rd 25: First 10 strokes cycle burst
4th 25: First 12 strokes cycle burst
Try to HIDE YOUR EFFORT on the cycle bursts. Go for a high turnover and speed, but try to RELAX your shoulder and arm muscles at the same time. Make this easy, CONTROLLED speed.
