Working underwater dolphins in our set of the week.


Main Set Monday - Dolphins

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Jul 22, 2013 01:52PM

Working on better dolphin kicks is always a good idea. Incorporating them purposely into a set, demands the athletes focus on just that.

Main Set Thursday - All fins to save the shoulders

By Barbara Hummel to Silver (Intermediate) | Mar 14, 2013 12:46PM

Needed to give the shoulders a little break today, so did this main set entirely with fins (except at the end) and mostly kick.

Kick set this week. Actually, it's four short kick in each stroke.


Butterfly - Dolphin/Breast Kick Combo

By Barbara Hummel to Butterfly | Nov 13, 2012 08:00AM

Many swimmers, especially masters swimmers, find it so challenging to do dolphin kick on their back that they just give up. By combining dolphin kick and breaststroke kick, you can learn this important skill and not feel like you're drowning or going backwards.


Main Set Wednesday - When the Ball's in Your Court...

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Oct 24, 2012 01:17PM

Barbara's masters group used their kick day to accept Glenn's challenge to do just a little bit more with the Head-Up Dolphin drill.


Main Set Wednesday - Head-Up Dolphin

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Oct 17, 2012 01:58PM

Thanks to Barbara for throwing down the gauntlet to my noon masters group. When they saw Barbara's group doing the Head-Up Dolphin drill, they said... WE WANT TO DO A LITTLE BIT MORE!


Butterfly - Head-Up Dolphin Kick

By Barbara Hummel to Butterfly | Oct 16, 2012 10:00AM

Finding "fun" and challenging ways to keep practice intriguing for swimmers is partly what drills are all about. It's even better when these drills tax the swimmers' bodies so that physical conditioning also takes place.


Swimming Set of the Week - October 12, 2012

By Barbara Hummel to Set of the Week | Oct 12, 2012 01:54PM

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Sep 19, 2012 11:49AM

We did some pumped-up kick sets this morning, using equipment and body weight to intensify the effort and keep it fun.
