Main Set Groundhog's Day

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Feb 01, 2012 12:01AM

Here's a set for Groundhog's Day that combines teamwork and a lot of underwater breath control.


Freestyle - Underwater Free

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Jul 13, 2011 07:49AM

Being able to focus on one specific aspect of your stroke sometimes takes isolation. Swimming under water certainly gives you that.


Roque Santos - Breaststroke Breath Control

By Glenn Mills to Articles | Jun 10, 2011 08:39AM

Olympian Roque Santos answers questions from our app users and website. Today's question deals with more ideas on breath control off the turns.


Main Set Wednesday - March 9, 2011

By Glenn Mills to Gold (Advanced) | Mar 09, 2011 07:17AM

Good practice with the masters group today, and a nice opportunity to get some nice training in, and alternate that with some up tempo stroke.


Swimming Pics of the Week - February 10, 2011

By Glenn Mills to Pic of the Week | Feb 10, 2011 12:36PM

The question is... how long are you actually taking air IN when you breathe on freestyle?


Main Set Monday - February 7, 2011

By Glenn Mills to Gold (Advanced) | Feb 07, 2011 08:44AM

Not a major main set this morning, mostly short sets with a lot of focus, which I like.

Four short kick sets this week.


Freestyle - Avoiding the "Fall"

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Oct 05, 2010 08:22AM

While there are many examples of great swimmers loping, or falling, into the water after a breath, for most of us normal swimmers, it's a much better idea to maintain a direct and stable body position while swimming freestyle.

Swimming Set of the Week - August 6, 2010

Working IM and breath control this week.


Turns - Stable Pushoffs

By Glenn Mills to Starts & Turns | Jul 21, 2010 07:51AM

When many younger and older swimmers come off a flip turn, they're sometimes disoriented and push off incorrectly. In order to learn a great line, and stable exit from a flip, here's a good sequence to help.


Swimming Set of the Week - June 18, 2010

By Barbara Hummel to Set of the Week | Jun 18, 2010 12:51AM

This week's set can be used as an aerobic recovery set. For a more aggressive workout, pick one of the tracks (either the pulls or the IMs) and push those swims.


Breaststroke - Breath Control

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | Jun 15, 2010 04:50AM

To really excel at breaststroke, you need to be able to control your breathing...and not just the breathing in, but also the breathing OUT!
