Freestyle Rotation Set and Changing-Pace Set

 WARMUP:  400

WARMUP/DRILL SET:  450 + 50/300 + 50
(Beginner lane does 4 X 75.)
6 X 75 with fins on approx. :20 rest interval
Each 75 is swum as 50 of free/back combo (4 strokes backstroke/3 strokes freestyle) + 25 back or 25 free (alternate during the set).  Your focus is clean and smooth rotation on the combo drill and building this rotation into the length of swim.  When you roll from free to back or back to free, make sure one arm is fully extended.  Take your time on the set.  Feel long and stretched out.

50 dolphin kick recovery

MAIN SET:  1500/1100
Beginner lane does the entire set except do only 4 X 100 instead of 8 X 100.
4 X 25 stroke (not free), start with low stroke count and add one stroke on each 25
