Main Set Monday - Tempo Trainer Discovery

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | May 05, 2014 02:02PM

Freestyle - Hand Drive

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Nov 26, 2013 01:55PM

Just like in the real world, the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. When swimming freestyle, we need to focus on making sure we're driving our hands forward during extension.
