Swimming Set of the Week - March 29, 2013

By Barbara Hummel to Set of the Week | Mar 29, 2013 10:57AM

This week's set is meant as a recovery set after a speed day, but it can sneak up on you if you do the 75s correctly. At the bottom is a modified version for less-speedy lanes.


Swimming Set of the Week - March 22, 2013

By Barbara Hummel to Set of the Week | Mar 22, 2013 12:01AM

Two weeks in a row: a set that will keep the IM swimmers AND the freestylers happy (with some breaststroke love at the end).


Freestyle - The New Hypoxic

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Mar 05, 2013 06:13AM

I have to say, I'm not a fan of hypoxic training for masters swimmer, but I am a fan of learning efficiency to the point of not needing air.


Swimming Set of the Week - February 8, 2013

By Barbara Hummel to Set of the Week | Feb 11, 2013 12:28PM

Yep, we love breaststroke around here.

Continuing to focus on freestyle breathing patterns this week. Today we worked on bilateral breathing.


Main Set Monday - Air Is Fuel

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Feb 04, 2013 03:18PM

Experimenting today with how changing your breathing pattern...specifically, giving yourself more air during the course of a swim...can affect your pace, speed, and energy.


Main Set Saturday -- Resistance Toys

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Feb 02, 2013 11:41AM

This one was just plain fun. Nobody wanted to get out of the pool at the end.


Main Set Tuesday - Hitting Your Mark

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Oct 10, 2012 11:09AM

Making sure you reach your specified distance off each turn is very important. So important, we use noodles.

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Aug 01, 2012 12:20PM

Aerobic distance set plus an aquatic version of the Olympic event of Keirin.


Swimming Set of the Week - June 22, 2012

By Barbara Hummel to Set of the Week | Jun 22, 2012 11:55AM

This week's set asks you to tire the body with 100-125 yards of swim or kick, then climb out and dive in for a really FAST 25...then repeat.


Main Set Thursday - Flag Day!

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Jun 14, 2012 12:50AM

June 14th is Flag Day in the USA, so we did a little flag work today with Masters.
