Butterfly - Second Kick

By Glenn Mills to Butterfly | Jul 09, 2010 06:00AM

To swim really fast butterfly, you have to take advantage of every opportunity for propulsion. The place that most swimmers ignore this opportunity... is in the second kick.


Training - Double Med-Ball Eggbeater

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Jul 08, 2010 06:00AM

So you want to get your legs in shape quickly? Here's a drill that's not only fun but also just a bit challenging. It's also a great way to work your legs without injuring the knees.


Breaststroke - Breath Control

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | Jun 15, 2010 04:50AM

To really excel at breaststroke, you need to be able to control your breathing...and not just the breathing in, but also the breathing OUT!


Breaststroke - Separation Drill

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | May 25, 2010 09:01AM

In breaststroke, timing is everything, and knowing when to initiate the kick is a critical element in that timing. Steve Haufler's Separation Drill does a great job in over-teaching this simple step to a great breaststroke.

Backstroke - Backwards Board Kick

By Glenn Mills to Backstroke | Apr 27, 2010 08:08AM

Kicking backwards while holding a board is a great drill for working your abs and thighs, essential muscles for butterfly and for dolphin kick off the walls for backstroke.

Swimming Pic of the Week - February 4, 2010

By Glenn Mills to Pic of the Week | Feb 04, 2010 09:44AM

We all do this just about every day, but when you're kicking, how do you push off?


Breaststroke - Band Kick

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | Nov 24, 2009 08:00AM

Too often, especially when kicking with a board, many swimmers search for the most power possible, which causes the legs and knees to go too wide.


Freestyle - 10-Kick Flutter Variation

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Oct 22, 2009 04:38AM

Wanna work your legs and body position, and have fun with some tools? Here's a fun drill that allows you to vary your flutter kick a few times on each length.


Swimming Set of the Week - October 16, 2009

By Barbara Hummel to Set of the Week | Oct 16, 2009 05:44AM

If you choose easy sendoffs and take too much rest, this week's set becomes just another set. But if you step up and challenge yourself, this will be one of those sets that gets ***** next to it in your workout log.
