We had a great opportunity to spend time with Olympic Medalist Kim Vandenberg yesterday.


Freestyle - Sliced Hand Exit

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Jun 18, 2013 08:00AM

Pushing the hand all the way through the exit of the stroke is something swimmers have worked on for years. Here's a little additional point to think about.


Main Set Thursday - Tempo Trainer Combo 100s

By Barbara Hummel to Silver (Intermediate) | Jun 06, 2013 01:09PM

This set works best if you have two Tempo Trainers, but one TT works just fine.


All Strokes - Swimmer's Snorkel

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Jun 04, 2013 05:30AM

We've all either seen, or frequently use, a swimmer's snorkel. Here are a couple points to focus on next time you strap one to your head.


What Do You Focus on When Everything Is Falling Apart?

By Glenn Mills to Motivational Articles | Jun 03, 2013 09:20AM

Training takes its toll on technique. While THAT sounds like a headline from the National Enquirer, it's a typical occurrence during most age-group swim practices.


Main Set Thursday - Bilateral Breathing

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | May 23, 2013 01:32AM

With triathlon season already in motion, many masters swimmers need to be "encouraged" to practice their bilateral breathing.


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.


Swimming Set of the Week - May 10, 2013

By Barbara Hummel to Set of the Week | May 10, 2013 12:23AM

This week's set integrates drilling and swimming...freestyle and backstroke.


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.


Freestyle - The Finish

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Mar 26, 2013 07:00AM

The sports world is filled with stories of people winning by 1/100th of a second, or losing by 1/100th of a second. While a race can be swum perfectly, it's not over till it's over.


Swimming Set of the Week - March 22, 2013

By Barbara Hummel to Set of the Week | Mar 22, 2013 12:01AM

Two weeks in a row: a set that will keep the IM swimmers AND the freestylers happy (with some breaststroke love at the end).


Swimming Set of the Week - March 15, 2013

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

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


Pic of the Week - Freestyle Head Position

By Glenn Mills to Pic of the Week | Mar 07, 2013 05:45PM

What's your opinion on this head position?


Freestyle - The New Hypoxic

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Mar 05, 2013 06:13AM

I have to say, I'm not a fan of hypoxic training for masters swimmer, but I am a fan of learning efficiency to the point of not needing air.

Nice picture of a great triathlete working on her freestyle extension.
