Swimming Set of the Week – September 9, 2011

Another set this week that helps swimmers train for the SCM season while in a SCY pool.

Make sure you take plenty of rest between each swim.  When we did this with our Masters group, we rested 45-75 seconds after each active-recovery length before starting the next swim.  This allowed all swimmers (of all speeds and doing various strokes) to get back to the starting wall and regroup before starting the next swim together.  This turns the set into more of a speed-training set.
