Swimming Set of the Week 2 – January 6, 2009

A couple sets featuring pulling and kicking, and starting to focus on raw speed.  Remember:  When you’re doing sets with a speed focus, don’t swim the slow part too fast.  Take your time, relax, recover, and gear up for the hard part.  Raw speed is about raw speed… there’s no time to think; it’s all about power and aggression.
