By Glenn Mills to Backstroke | Aug 27, 2014 06:00AM

Not all drills are about body position, and this one sure isn't.

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Jun 04, 2014 08:00AM

Here's a fun way to use the FINIS Pulling Ankle Strap that can help your swimmers learn a better flutter kick.


Freestyle - Narrow Flutter Kick

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Apr 02, 2014 05:30AM

Developing a constant kick is very important for freestyle, but making sure it's narrow will also be something to focus on.


Breaststroke - Flutter Kick

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | Mar 12, 2014 08:01AM

Helping swimmers develop faster hands out front, sometimes starts at the back.


Backstroke - Goggle Under Back Kick

By Glenn Mills to Backstroke | Feb 26, 2014 12:50PM

We've focused on backstroke kick before, but this is a small detail that can also help your entire body position.


Main Set Wednesday - Flutter Kick No Fins

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Sep 18, 2013 11:01AM

Lots of groans when the masters saw this before practice...lots of thumbs up after practice.


Backstroke - Streamline Kick

By Glenn Mills to Backstroke | Jul 18, 2013 05:48AM

Incorporating simple balance drills during kick sets has dual benefits to your swimming.


Freestyle - Straighter-Leg Flutter Kick

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | May 21, 2013 07:01AM

While we've covered this many times before, it seems there's always a need to rehash that a "straight-leg" flutter kick really doesn't mean you don't bend your legs.

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.


Main Set Wednesday - Freestyle Technique, then Some 200s

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Nov 28, 2012 12:02PM

First part of today's practice was all about technique and building awareness of rotation, kick, and hand entry. Then we carried the focus points into a set of 200s.

Main Set Wednesday - Flutter Kick

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Oct 10, 2012 03:17PM

Going leg heavy doesn't just mean grabbing a board. Simply grabbing the wall can be a good start.
