300 IM, donw as 25 kick/25 scull/25 pull in stroke

MAIN SET: 1600
Did this with Zura Alpha fins, but you could do it with no equipment. Focus on breast was keeping head down during the outsweep and feeling the forward pulse while doing this — and making first pull after the wall a powerful pull then back into streamline. When doing pulse breast with fins, I don’t do pulldowns because it doesn’t feel good to come to a complete stop on the hand recovery. Instead, I do 3 to 4 hand-lead dolphins off each wall, to work on breath control.
