By Barbara Hummel to Set of the Week | Mar 17, 2013 03:47PM

Our set of the week is partly IM but mostly freestyle.


Main Set Tuesday - Negative Splits & Descends

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Mar 05, 2013 04:13PM

Barbara's masters team has been focusing on negative-splitting their 100s and 200s for the past month. Here's what they did today, with a modified version for the "beginner" lanes.

Our Set of the Week incorporates our Drill of the Week. Think it looks too easy? Make sure you do it with NO FINS.


Main Set Monday - Alternating Smooth & Challenging

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Feb 25, 2013 02:55PM

Getting in some early week work with crowded lanes.


Main Set Monday - Challenging Speed

By Glenn Mills to Gold (Advanced) | Jan 28, 2013 10:27AM

Descending 5 x 50's gives you the goal time... next you'll have to hold that a bit longer than one.


Swimming Set of the Week - January 4, 2013

This week's set starts out very easy, and ends up being very hard.


Main Set Wednesday - Descending 100's

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Jan 02, 2013 10:17AM

The intervals get faster as the reps get higher. A good way to challenge your swimmers.


Main Set Saturday - Faster Faster 100s

By Glenn Mills to Gold (Advanced) | Dec 22, 2012 11:39AM

Here's a long set that is as difficult, or as easy as you want to make it. With an increasing interval, it's important to continue to push the performance envelope further and further.


Main Set Thursday - 200s Working Pace

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Dec 20, 2012 11:23AM

Following the theme of controlled descends this week, Barbara's team applied the concept to some 200s.


Main Set Thursday - Logical Descend

By Glenn Mills to Gold (Advanced) | Dec 13, 2012 07:19AM

Learning pace is more than guessing, it's about feeling how the water moves passed your body at specific speeds. Here's a practice that inspires to teach those feelings.


Swimming Set of the Week - December 7, 2012

By Barbara Hummel to Set of the Week | Dec 07, 2012 11:48AM

This week's set is inspired by our Flip-Turn Drill of the Week, and by Glenn's flip-turn set. This was the week's killer set for the masters team coached by Barbara. Careful what you eat before practice....


Swimming Set of the Week - November 23, 2012

By Barbara Hummel to Set of the Week | Nov 20, 2012 07:35AM

We're posting a few days early this week, with a special Black Friday workout, in case you want to plan ahead.


Main Set Monday - Controlled Pace

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Nov 19, 2012 02:01PM

If you just look at the distance and intervals of this practice, there's nothing to it.


Swimming Set of the Week - November 9, 2012

By Barbara Hummel to Set of the Week | Nov 09, 2012 12:11AM

IM set this week. Why do these always look so harmless on paper?


Main Set Wednesday - Hit Your Pace

By Glenn Mills to Gold (Advanced) | Nov 08, 2012 11:05AM

This set grows on you pretty quickly, and keeping the full set from the group makes it even tougher on them. (Insert evil coach smirk here)
