All Strokes - Monofin Sprints

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Apr 30, 2013 08:01AM

Sure, we all know the FINIS Foil Monofin is great for training the underwater dolphin, but there's another great use for it as well.


Drill of the Week - Body Dolphin with Board

By Glenn Mills to Butterfly | Feb 26, 2013 08:16AM

Here's a quick drill we use with our age-group swimmers to teach a more stable body dolphin.


Turns - How Many Dolphins?

By Glenn Mills to Starts & Turns | Apr 03, 2012 08:13AM

Even though the majority of time at swim practice is spent going back and forth, it's the switching from one direction to the other that is more important than ever.


All Strokes - Medball Toss

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Jan 17, 2012 10:25AM

If you're looking for challenging ways to gain fitness for your legs, while adding a fun aspect to your training, medballs can certainly help accomplish that task.


All Strokes - Get-Out Swim

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Jan 10, 2012 07:00AM

Ever since there's been competitive swimming, there have been get-out swims. A great way to encourage swimmers to go faster than they thought they could, with the cherry of getting out of practice 10 minutes early.

By Glenn Mills to Pic of the Week | Aug 04, 2011 08:21AM

With the talk of tech suits coming back up, I thought I'd post a pic and short video of what people still use their tech suits for.


Turns - Dolphin / Group

By Glenn Mills to Starts & Turns | Jul 26, 2011 06:06AM

Coaching in a group setting sometimes requires that you give technique work that everyone is able to do.


Turns - Dolphin Kick on Your Back

By Glenn Mills to Starts & Turns | Jul 05, 2011 07:06AM

Developing a great underwater dolphin is something swimmers can work on every day.


All Strokes - Vertical Dolphin Variations

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Mar 29, 2011 07:53AM

Last week we linked to a video of Michael Phelps practicing vertical dolphin kick with weights strapped around his waist.


New Toy - Finis Foil Monofin

By Glenn Mills to Product Reviews | Feb 11, 2011 08:23AM

Look what we got to play with this morning. It's the new Finis Foil Monofin.


Main Set Tuesday - February 8, 2011

By Glenn Mills to Gold (Advanced) | Feb 08, 2011 10:09AM

A longer set this morning which required some thinking, and pinpointing exactly what the coach wanted done. Just like yesterday, without attacking the focus points, it's just going back and forth.


Butterfly - Dolphin Initiation

By Glenn Mills to Butterfly | Jan 03, 2011 03:00PM

We all know a good underwater dolphin kick is incredibly important in your butterfly. The question is... when do you start your kick?
