Swimming Set of the Week – June 1, 2012

Our set of the week is really four mini sets of 200 yards/meters each.   As suggested with our previous mini sets (#1#2#3#4), you can spice up a workout by inserting one of these sets at any point during practice.  Or…you can string them together for a tough IM set.   Or…if you’re training, say, for the 200 fly, you could string two or more of the butterfly sets together.  Ouch!  

Faster/stronger swimmers could add 2 X 25 to each set at the end, repeating the 25-second sendoff or taking the sendoff down to 20 seconds or even :15 seconds.
