Main Set Monday – Posture

Another drill / swim set.  This one is actually a bit more challenging in a few ways, but enjoyable.

This set incorporates the ankle buoy drill to help develop and maintain posture through the core while swimming.  It also helps to teach stabilization of the bodyline through the feet… and… well… it helps build strength in the groin by squeezing the legs together to hold the pull-buoy in, and also works the core because you have to keep everything tight to maintain all the lines.

Sure… that’s a horrible gramatical sentance, but the point was… this is a great drill with lots o’ benefits.  If you don’t know what it is… check it out here.
