Who Will You Be? - Madison Avery Mills - Born 11/11/13

By Glenn Mills to Motivational Articles | Nov 19, 2013 12:53AM

Last week was a pretty eventful week. My wife, Rachel, gave birth to our new daughter, Madison Avery Mills. Since then, and knowing how much lies ahead for this new baby, I started to think about what traits she will exhibit as she grows...traits of some of the closest people in my life.

Main Set Monday - Combining Technique and Swim

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Nov 06, 2013 03:31PM

Workouts that combine technique focus and actual swimming are always popular with Barbara's masters team. This one got a lot of thumbs up.


Turns - Vertical Pushoffs

By Glenn Mills to Starts & Turns | Nov 05, 2013 12:47PM

When first teaching swimmers to push off more on their backs for a flip turn, sometimes there is some disorientation in this process.


Main Set Monday - Breaststroke Extension

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Nov 04, 2013 01:49PM

We created a short sequence that got the swimmers thinking of the correct front half of the body for breaststroke extension.


Note To Swimmers... We See You

By Glenn Mills to Motivational Articles | Nov 04, 2013 01:26PM

Swimmers need to understand something: When you're standing above the surface, you see SO much more than people think.


Swimming Set of the Week - November 1, 2013

By Barbara Hummel to Set of the Week | Nov 03, 2013 04:18PM

This week's set offers two different ways to "encourage" you to speed up your pace.


Main Set Friday - Heart Rate

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Nov 01, 2013 11:58AM

The goal of this set is to have the heart rate stay as close as possible to where it starts. When the interval gets a bit tougher, and the distance a bit longer, you'll know if you started with the proper stroke count.


Main Set Thursday - Halloween!

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Oct 30, 2013 08:08PM

For a very scary Halloween workout you will need:


Headstrong Posture Trainer

By Glenn Mills to Product Reviews | Oct 30, 2013 12:41PM

Backstroke - Learning Spin Drill

By Glenn Mills to Backstroke | Oct 29, 2013 07:00AM

When our swimmers start to move forward to a more advanced level, it's time to take some time to focus on hand speed.


Main Set Monday - Starting the Week with IM

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Oct 28, 2013 06:48AM

Getting the week started by mixing up the strokes.


Swimming Set of the Week - October 25, 2013

By Barbara Hummel to Set of the Week | Oct 25, 2013 03:48PM

Our set of the week features a 300-yard (or meter) mini set that works great as part of a taper.


Main Set Wednesday - Wait for it!

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Oct 24, 2013 05:13PM

The title simply means to not overswim the first part of the set. Wait for the tough stuff that's coming.
