Freestyle - Relax and Feel

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | 2 days ago

Sometimes we're so caught up in the hard training of swimming, we forget to just experience the water.


Freestyle - With Dolphin Kick

Here's another twist on combining two strokes into one drill to keep the mind firing on all cylinders.

By Glenn Mills to Butterfly | 23 days ago

Looking to overload your fly just a bit more? Here’s a stabilization exercise that overloads both the front and back of your butterfly.


Breaststroke - Heel Touch Kick

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | Sep 03, 2014 01:07PM

While we've spent years focusing on a narrow breaststroke kick, we can't forget that we need to make sure the feet are connecting correctly no matter where the push initiates.


Backstroke - Med Ball Kick

By Glenn Mills to Backstroke | Aug 27, 2014 06:00AM

Not all drills are about body position, and this one sure isn't.


Freestyle - Reduced Stroke 100s

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Aug 20, 2014 08:03AM

Here's a simple aspect you can add to any set to give you some insight on what you actually know about your stroke.


Backstroke - Shoulder Recovery

By Glenn Mills to Backstroke | Aug 14, 2014 08:34AM

Over a decade ago as we were starting the Drill of the Week, we published a drill called Shoulder Pop. It's great that's still so valid, and here's some advanced views on that.


Breaststroke - Flip Turns With No Pushoff

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | Aug 06, 2014 08:00AM

Nearly 7 years ago, we published a drill that showed breaststrokers using flip turns and no underwater pull to better simulate long course training in a short course pool. Here's another level to that.


Breaststroke - Sneaky Extension Practice

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | Jul 30, 2014 06:00AM

One of the most important aspects of a great breaststroke will be the extended position underwater. Here's a little bit of a sneaky way to get your swimmers to practice this.


Freestyle - Disappear Behind Your Hand

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Jul 23, 2014 08:15AM

Keeping your body narrow on freestyle makes hydrodynamic sense, but how narrow IS narrow?


Freestyle - Double Band Kick

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Jun 04, 2014 08:00AM

Here's a fun way to use the FINIS Pulling Ankle Strap that can help your swimmers learn a better flutter kick.


Turns - Air Control Flip Turn

By Glenn Mills to Starts & Turns | May 28, 2014 08:01AM

Many swimmers, especially ones still learning, can tend to allow too much air to escape during the flip turn. This is done to make sure no water goes UP the nose, but it also has a detrimental effect on your pushoff.


Freestyle - Fin Sprint

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | May 21, 2014 06:00AM

When you're allowed to use fins to go fast in freestyle... USE them!


Developing a Narrow Flutter Kick

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | May 14, 2014 06:00AM

Other than the freestyle pull, flutter kick is the most used skill in swimming. Some people kick well, other people kick poorly, but just about everyone kicks a little when they swim freestyle. While it sometimes takes a lot of thought to develop a good flutter kick, it's certainly worth the time.


Breaststroke - Back Throw Extension

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | Apr 30, 2014 12:11PM

This drill uses fins, and focuses on two specific aspects of an updated breaststroke technique, using your back to get you into extension better, and diving forward into a shallow bodyline.
