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.


Main Set Wednesday - Pumped-Up Kicks

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.


Main Set Wednesday - Kick!

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Sep 13, 2012 08:09AM

Inspired by Barbara's recent kick set, we also decided to overload the legs just a bit. Enjoy (the walk home).

The main focus of the set is the kick segments.


Main Set Wednesday - Drill & Kick Practice

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Sep 05, 2012 11:39AM

To protect everyone's shoulders, we've been starting each practice with some dryland shoulder exercises, and using drills and kicking when in the pool.


Main Set Friday - Kick Sets and Aquatic Triathlon

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Aug 10, 2012 12:03PM

6 X 50 (25 freestyle + 25 backstroke); minimum of two underwater dolphin kicks off each wall


Main Set Thursday - Legs!

By Glenn Mills to Gold (Advanced) | Jul 20, 2012 09:54AM

Overloading the legs was the goal today, and from the looks of the team walking to the locker rooms... mission accomplished.


Main Set Tuesday - Pit Stops

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Jul 05, 2012 10:16AM

One of my all-time favorite sets... probably because of my love of auto racing. The ability to prepare for a quick change is important in this set.


Main Set Thursday - Beginner Lane Breast & Flips

By Barbara Hummel to Bronze (Learning) | Jun 21, 2012 10:56AM

Working on breaststroke kick and flip turns with the "technique group" today.


Breaststroke - High Heels Progression 2

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | Jun 12, 2012 09:03AM

Here's a remake of a drill we shot back in 2005. Even with many swimmers trying to get a shallower kick, for some, they've gone a bit too far in trying to reduce the resistance of the recovery, and now get nothing out of the kick at all... time to revisit.

Freestyle technique is your focus in the first half of the set. Putting that technique into practice with a classic 10 X 100 is your focus on the second half.


Swimming Set of the Week - March 2, 2012

By Barbara Hummel to Set of the Week | Mar 02, 2012 12:44AM

Speedwork this week, including some kicking speedwork.


Main Set Thursday - March 1, 2012

By Glenn Mills to Articles | Mar 01, 2012 10:59AM

A mix of swim and kick, with fast kick becoming demanded by the end of each set. Reducing the amount of rest on the swim also makes it a bit tougher toward the end.
