Main Set Monday - Tempo Trainer Discovery

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | May 05, 2014 02:02PM

When teaching swimmers how to figure out their rate for freestyle, sometimes you have to put them into a state of discomfort. Some rates are good for some, some are good for others. Treating the entire group the same means there will always be someone who is unhappy. Oh well. ;)


Main Set Monday - Age Group Sprints

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Apr 16, 2014 11:34AM

Working with younger swimmers, thinking about technique, and forcing some speed.


Main Set Monday - Longer Lunchtime Swim

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Dec 30, 2013 03:38PM

We don't typically have much opportunity to swim long swims at the lunchtime practice. Many people show, and it's a short course practice, so long swims would create too much chaos.


Main Set Monday - Catch Until You Can't

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Dec 09, 2013 02:50PM

This set is designed to push the swimmers technique until they can't hold it anymore. Make sure the intervals reach a level that is right on their edge of ability.


Main Set Friday - Deep Turns

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Dec 06, 2013 02:46PM

Learning from Ricky Berens, we focused on deep pushoffs for this practice.

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Dec 04, 2013 02:41PM

Alternating drilling and swimming to teach better extension in Freestyle.


Main Set Monday - How To Say 15 x 200s Nicely

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Dec 02, 2013 01:36PM

Getting your swimmers to swim 15 x 200s without them actually feeling that boredom that can sometimes come with it is always a challenge. Breaking up the set helps.


Main Set Friday - Day After Turkey 25s

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Nov 29, 2013 01:33PM

The set sounds easy, unless you do exactly what's asked.

Main Set Monday - Pace

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Nov 25, 2013 05:48PM

Here's a short set to help swimmers learn what it feels like to swim at a specific pace.


Main Set Wednesday - Flips & Breakouts

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Nov 20, 2013 09:10PM

Incorporating some time to really think about how you interact with the wall is a good idea. Sometimes we take these frequent occurrences for granted and just think everyone is just doing it right. Not always the case.


Main Set Monday - Learning Great Breaststroke with Freestyle

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Nov 19, 2013 01:51PM

When starting the practice yesterday, the goal was to teach the masters swimmers to be better breaststrokers, while at the same time, give them a practice most of them enjoyed from a fitness standpoint.


Main Set Monday - Breaststroke Extension

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Nov 04, 2013 01:49PM

We created a short sequence that got the swimmers thinking of the correct front half of the body for breaststroke extension.


Main Set Friday - Heart Rate

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Nov 01, 2013 11:58AM

The goal of this set is to have the heart rate stay as close as possible to where it starts. When the interval gets a bit tougher, and the distance a bit longer, you'll know if you started with the proper stroke count.

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Oct 28, 2013 06:48AM

Getting the week started by mixing up the strokes.
