Tip #1: Streamline!


Freestyle - Tight Tuck on Flip Turn

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Aug 12, 2005 08:30AM

It's simple. The tighter the tuck, the faster you'll spin on a flip turn. But how tight is tight? Can you touch your legs to your chest? If so, then you know what a tight turn is.

This week's Pic of the Week is in honor of our current swim camp. It serves as a reminder to young swimmers EXACTLY how to push off EACH wall.

In this practice, you are using the 25s as active recovery between the 100s. I like doing 100s with active recovery because then, when you swim JUST a 100, it feels really easy.

08/04/05 CCB Masters Focus IM Practice

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Aug 04, 2005 10:56AM

This is a good practice to work on drills -- and to COACH drills. I was able to stop the group or a lane after each of the 25s and give critiques or instruction, but then they got to do some SWIMMING, with a revisit of the drill during the swimming.


Attitude to Achieve

Who among us has never had a bad race? Who among us has never failed to do what we set out to? Who among us has faltered while the entire world was watching in amazement that you didn't WIN? OK... two out of three for most of us.

07/28/05 CCB Masters IM Practice, Nothing Longer than a 50

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Jul 28, 2005 11:39AM

We've been doing a lot of all-freestyle practices lately, so I wanted to mix things up a little today.


The Competition Is Coming

By Glenn Mills to Articles | Jul 22, 2005 04:03AM

A long time ago, someone told me that it's harder to STAY on top than it is to get there. I never understood what he meant until I actually won a big meet. When you're on top, you are the target. When you're on top, you have to invent ways to keep yourself there. Once you're on top, you have to reassess your goals.
