Main Set Monday – Pull Buoy Kicking

Incorporating drills in to practice sometimes involves more than just doing the drill.

While it seems pretty easy initially, the extra thought required to kick with a pull-buoy, as well as the extra effort (which you’ll discover), can prove as a great way to work a bit more, and think about a specific aspect of your stroke.

The drill we focused on was Backstroke – Pull-Buoy Flutter Kick

Main Set (short course yards):
 – 6 x 100 on 1:30 freestyle – using a pull-buoy.
 – 6 x 100 on 1:35 freestyle – keep the pull-buoy in, but use a continuous flutter kick.
 – 6 x 50 on :45 freestyle – no pull-buoy but continue using a continuous flutter kick.

 – 6 x 100 on 1:40 50 freestyle 50 backstroke – using a pull-buoy.
 – 6 x 100 on 1:45 50 freestyle 50 backstroke – keep the pull-buoy in, but use a continuous flutter kick.
 – 6 x 50 on :50 backstroke – no pull-buoy but continue using a continuous flutter kick.

Try the set, and tell us what hurts the most.
