Working on better dolphin kicks is always a good idea. Incorporating them purposely into a set, demands the athletes focus on just that.
The kids team did a very challenging set last week of decreasing interval 100s, down to 1:00 / 100. No reason not to let the masters into the fun.
Smooth freestyle mixed with some 50s stroke.
This set starts out feeling smooth and easy, and ends with some intense cadences, especially for backstroke and breaststroke.
Taking a standard set from warm-up to something pretty intense. Plan for the future.
Getting the week started with some smooth, then a bit more challenging swims.
There won’t be any point to this set if you don’t SPRINT when you’re asked to SPRINT.
This set works best if you have two Tempo Trainers, but one TT works just fine.
For masters swimmers, throwing in some IMs to a practice adds some heart rate to what would typically be a simple set.
Like on Wednesday, we wanted to just get some smooth swimming in, but challenging ourselves to maintaining a consistent pace through the entire practice.
