World Class 25

I had recently come across this cool little app called viddy just before I flew to Charlotte to do some work.

There’s a certain loneliness about training for open-water swimming, especially when you do your training in a pool. This drill serves multiple purposes to teach and help break the monotony that comes with 5,000-meter swims.

The problem with way too many swimmers is that they take a very long path to the catch. One of the most common long paths: crossing over prior to extension.

Developing power and the proper pull for freestyle takes an understanding of where real power comes from.

Maintaining a stable core is an important part of a good freestyle. This standard drill is a good one to help accomplish this.

Swimming with paddles gives people a feeling of power as they pull, but this drill will help you focus on another aspect of your stroke… reach!
