09/02/04 CCB Masters  Speed Bumps

WARMUP: 400400 your choice, on your ownMAIN SET: 1650I've found that this progression is one of the best ways to get the entire team working on drills. For the swimmers who know the drills, it allows them to integrate the focus of the drill into some actual swimming. And the progression is aerobically taxing if you swim through it with 10 to 20 seconds rest after each interval. For the new swimmers, it allows me explain the drill, watch them try it for a 25, give correction, then watch them do it three more times. Swim three rounds of the following:25 Drill50 Drill/Swim75 Drill/Swim/Swim100 Swim/Swim/Drill/Swim200 Freestyle pull with pull buoy, focusing on streamlining off each wall and not breathing until the 2nd or 3rd stroke.100 SPEED BUMP (This changes each round, see below.)Round #1:Swim = Freestyle Drill is Single Switch FreeSpeed Bump is to swim a FAST 100 free for time.
