Breaststroke - 2 Down/1 Up Fast Hands

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | Jun 17, 2005 08:00AM

Fast hands are extremely important in breaststroke, and this week's drill, which puts a slight focus twist on a standard drill, presents a tremendous opportunity to prepare the quickest hands possible.

Scouting Report

By Barbara Hummel to Articles | Jun 17, 2005 08:00AM

There's a cool kid in New Hampshire that you should keep an eye on because I think he's going to do great things. Name's Aaron. Age 13. Soft-spoken, but gets things done. Still in junior high, but could probably be recruited early for the right price. What can he do? What's he good at? Anything he puts his mind to.

06/13/05 Resistance Practice

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Jun 14, 2005 09:45AM

I took a short break from swim training after Nationals three weeks ago, and have been focusing more on biking and running. For swim practice, I've just been SWIMMING, trying to maintain swim fitness and feel for the water, and I've been playing with some new swim toys. Did this practice in a 20-yard pool.

Breaststroke - High Heels Progression

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | Jun 10, 2005 08:00AM

To get the most out of your breaststroke kick you need to connect your feet to the water as high up as possible in your kick. The higher -- or sooner -- you connect with the water, the more time you'll spend in the propulsive phase of the kick.

06/09/05 CCB Masters 600 Tri Swim Prep

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Jun 09, 2005 12:31PM

Several of our Masters swimmers are doing a June 19th triathlon with a 600-yard swim. So today we did two sets of 6 X 100, on decreasing rest intervals, to simulate the race. We did vertical kicking right after each set of 100s, to simulate heavier use of the legs (biking) right after the 600 swim.

1500m Free?

By Tyler to Group (Mixed Levels) | Jun 08, 2005 12:52PM

I am helping a masters swimmer train for the 1500m. I helped her previously for sprinting (2 years back now). Anyway I saw her in the pool and she trains by just swimming the 1500m.

Breaking Point

By Coach Black to Articles | Jun 03, 2005 10:01AM

How much is too much? As a coach this is something that you have to make yourself aware of on a daily basis. You want to be on the fringe without going too far.

Take a Lesson from the Rookies!

By Barbara Hummel to Articles | Jun 03, 2005 10:01AM

On Tuesday and Thursday nights, I work as an assistant coach for a USS team based in Lebanon, New Hampshire. I love working with the kids, but what I REALLY LOVE is working with the kids who WANT to be on swim team, but aren't quite ready. We call them The Rookies, and Rookies Rule.

Backstroke - Timing Your Turns

By Glenn Mills to Backstroke | Jun 03, 2005 10:00AM

Here's a fun, safe way to begin building great backstroke turns. First of all, having a "system" for doing anything in athletics is very important. The typical hit-and-miss, or trial-and-error method of training or teaching has gone by the wayside with the term "dumb jock."

Harness Your Anger

By Glenn Mills to Articles | Jun 03, 2005 09:59AM

Deep in the recesses of the human mind, there is a spot where people go - and can learn to go -- to grab super-human energy. Now, I ain't no expert in this (hence the language), but I know this to be true. I've witnessed it, I've experienced it, and I've read about it. In fact, I recently watched an entire movie about it, The Hulk.

06/02/05 CCB Masters New Toy

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Jun 02, 2005 09:48PM

I recently purchased an 8-inch swim parachute. The chute is a piece of soft yellow plastic that clips onto a long piece of webbing, which in turn clips onto belt that goes around your waist. You push off and start swimming, and before you know it that tiny piece of yellow plastic feels ENORMOUS as it drags behind you. It offers a great aerobic workout, but the best thing is that it teaches you things about your stroke -- like where you have dead spots...or how your head position affects your speed...or how your rhythm affects your speed. I wanted everyone on the team to be able to try the parachute today, so here's what we did. The fastest lane did the parachute set first -- right after the first set of 100s. The next fastest lane used the chute next -- right after the second set of 100s, etc., until each lane got a chance to do the chute set. During the set, the swimmers in the lane do one 50 with the chute, then hand it off to the next swimmer.
