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.

05/26/05 CCB Masters Drill/Swim Sets with Toys

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | May 31, 2005 11:32AM

The idea in this practice is to do 2 X 25 of a drill or a scull or a focus point, and then do 2 X 100 swimming, incorporating the lesson of the drill into your stroke. The practice is more about searching and learning than about fast hard swimming.

Intimidation

By Glenn Mills to Articles | May 27, 2005 10:05AM

It could be a glance, a movement, a written word, or simply the presence...intimidation comes in MANY forms. In athletics, intimidation can be direct, or subtle, and knowing how to deal with it is either built into an individual's character, or developed through maturity.

Pic of the Week - May 20, 2005

This week's Pic of the Week is a bit of playing around with some video from this week's Drill of the Week. I took some artistic liberties, but, in reality, while I was making the DOTW, I just liked this shot.
