Swimming Set of the Week – May 17, 2013

Short set this week to wake up the connection between the catch and the core.

Four rounds:
1 X 50 freestyle pull with pull buoy held at ankles.    Goal:  Pull buoy moves along a steady, straight “track.”
1 X 50 pull with pull buoy in “normal” position and with hands in fists (or holding pieces of noodle).  Goal:  Initiate hip movement and catch at the same time.
1 X 50 freestyle swim, no equipment   Goal:  Descend time on these swims, 1-4.

Note:  Your sendoff/turnaround for the fist 50s might be 10 seconds slower than for the other 50s.
