Did this practice in a 20-yard pool.


05/03/05 CCB Masters Freestyle Scramble

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | May 03, 2005 11:05AM

Our Masters team is having growing pains. This is good because we have a lot of great new members. But's it a scramble because we have only 3 lanes for our morning practices, and 4 maybe 5 at night. Today we had three lanes for 15 swimmers ranging from true beginners doing drills seasoned vets. It was amazing to see how well everyone adapted to 6-in-a-lane swimming.


05/02/05 Breaststroke Practice with Equipment

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | May 02, 2005 09:26PM

Was in NYC this weekend, and had another chance to practice at Asphalt Green -- short-course this time. This practice is 2500 yards. If you wanted to bump it up by another 800 or 1600 yards, you could do the main set a third and fourth time, switching the equipment around so that you did each segment (1 X 200...2 X 100...4 X 50...4 X 25) with a different piece of the equipment each time.


Coming Home

Sometimes the final yards of an ocean race can seem longer -- or more difficult -- than the mile (or whatever distance) you've swum. The swimming was's trying to get to the beach that's daunting. For me, the quickest way to get into shore is to hitch a ride -- or bodysurf -- a wave to the beach. Of course you can take advantage of this only when the tide is right and there are waves to ride. But bodysurfing is a lot faster than swimming to the beach. Plus, you get to rest while the wave brings you to shore. If you're not proficient at bodysurfing a wave, here's how to do it.


Butterfly - Med-Ball Kick

By Glenn Mills to Butterfly | Apr 29, 2005 09:00AM

As a coach/teacher, there are a few things that really get you excited about the work you're doing. One really important thing for me, is when an athlete starts to make suggestions, or has new ideas. Such is the case with this drill.

04/26/05 Negative Split Breaststroke Practice

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Apr 26, 2005 10:24AM

Masters Nationals are one month away, so I'm transitioning into taper mode this week and next. My goal is to do a little bit more whole-stroke breaststroke (as opposed to emphasizing kick and drills ) and to introduce some speed and pace work with minimal rest.


04/24/05 Long-Course Breast Drill Practice

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Apr 25, 2005 10:23AM

I was down in New York City this weekend and had a chance to swim at my old home pool -- Asphalt Green. Every Sunday morning they configure this 50-meter indoor pool for long-course swimming, so how can you pass up an opportunity like that? I love to do drills in an LCM pool because you can get a rhythm going and really tune in to whatever drill you're doing.

Resistance Training

By Judson to Articles | Apr 22, 2005 10:28AM

Recently I have been thinking about the pickle I am in for morning practices. I have limited time and limited opportunities: one hour a day of practice time, five mornings a week. My objective is to pack as much quality training as possible into those five hours of time.
