Main Set Tuesday – Underwater Free

Starting practice focusing on Underwater Freestyle, and then trying to carry that feeling in to longer, and increasingly faster intervals.

Sometimes, it’s not as important WHAT the focus of a practice is, rather than that you have SOMETHING to think about while you’re training.  Starting a practice showing a specific technique, many times allows the athletes to pinpoint during standard training.

Main Set (short course yards):
• 16 x 25 on :30 – On the odds, start with 6-10 strokes of underwater freestyle, focusing on the fine points of the drill.

5 sets of the following – go straight through from set to set, no break in between:
• 3 x 50 on 1:00 – these are easy, which will become important later in the practice.
 • 2 x 75 on 1:15 – start to build
 • 1 x 100 on 1:15 – this interval should be challenging, and then go directly in to the 50’s for the start of the next round.
