Backstroke - Topher Drill

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Apr 23, 2014 07:00AM

Revisiting one of the original Drill of the Week videos. This takes us way back, to working with a very specific young swimmer named Christopher. Christopher had a problem of using a straight arm backstroke pull, and through the process of trying to fix it, we came up with this little process.


All Strokes - Grit Your Teeth and Close Your Eyes

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Jan 14, 2014 08:00AM

The next time your coach asks you to work on a particular skill, and they tell you with a sense of urgency, or demand, give this a try.


Pace Pal Underwater Pace Clock

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Jan 13, 2014 02:22PM

I love underwater pace clocks. The ability to learn something, and remind swimmers that they should always have their eyes and mind on the time.


All Strokes - Soft Hands

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Dec 10, 2013 01:47PM

When taper time comes and you want to swim your fastest, it's a good idea to sharpen your connection with the water with feel.


All Strokes - Partner Sculling

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Dec 03, 2013 08:45AM

Building a feel for the water as well as team bonding, this drill is good for many reasons.


All Strokes - FINIS Fins

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Sep 24, 2013 07:18AM

Since we come across so many variations of fins, we thought we'd put together a brief overview of various types you may use in your training. We're obviously fan of FINIS, and had the opportunity to shoot some video on various types of their fins.


All Strokes - Sculling Variation with Kim Vandenberg

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Jul 23, 2013 08:54AM

When sculling, many swimmers settle for the standard sweep of the hands. Olympian Kim Vandenberg shows a more advanced approach.


All Strokes - Trailing-Hands Sculling

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Jul 09, 2013 06:00AM

Watch the great swimmers' hands, and you'll see how soft they are when they swim. They're always searching to find that constant connection with the water.


All Strokes - Swimmer's Snorkel

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Jun 04, 2013 05:30AM

We've all either seen, or frequently use, a swimmer's snorkel. Here are a couple points to focus on next time you strap one to your head.


All Strokes - Change-of-Direction Relays

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | May 07, 2013 06:00AM

Swim training has a bit of monotony built in to it, so when there's a chance to break from routine, it's good to combine some athletic moves into the fun.


All Strokes - Monofin Sprints

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Apr 30, 2013 08:01AM

Sure, we all know the FINIS Foil Monofin is great for training the underwater dolphin, but there's another great use for it as well.


Changing Your Stopwatch Battery

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Feb 21, 2013 10:56AM

Most coaches have way too many stopwatches sitting around, probably quite a few of them not functioning either.


How To Put Together Swedish Goggles

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Feb 21, 2013 10:52AM

One of the oldest goggle designs is still one of the best. Swedish goggles, or Swedes are simple, inexpensive, and last a very long time. While not for everyone, if they fit your face, they're some of the best goggles on the market.


Drill of the Week - Yoga Scull

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Feb 19, 2013 09:20AM
