Swimming with the Masters this morning

By Glenn Mills to Gold (Advanced) | May 01, 2009 10:22AM

My friends (ABC, The Annapolis Breakfast Club) who swim in the same pool each morning have a standard Friday morning practice. Depending on how you approach it, it can either be easy or hard.


Pulling / Kicking / Swimming Fast

By Glenn Mills to Gold (Advanced) | Apr 30, 2009 09:05AM

The main set is long and, depending on your mood, filled with intensity... at least one part.


Freestyle - 1-2-3 Drill

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Apr 21, 2009 08:00AM

A consistent kick is a skill most freestylers desire; however, most of us weren't born with it. Learning how to incorporate the ultimate kick, a 6-beat kick, into your swimming initially seems like a very daunting task. The 1-2-3 Drill can help you learn this skill.

Tell us what you think this swimmer is doing.


Freestyle/Backstroke - Tempo-Trainer Kick

By Barbara Hummel to Freestyle | Apr 07, 2009 05:00AM

Here's a fun drill that tests the upper limit of your flutter kick...and the lower limit of your Tempo Trainer.


Swimming Set of the Week - April 3, 2009

Are you tough enuf for the Harvard women's water-polo workout?


Freestyle - Egyptian Crawl

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Feb 03, 2009 11:24AM

Developing a quick, productive kick is important for all swimmers, but especially for sprint freestylers. This drill forces the feet to move quickly, and constantly through the entire length.


Swimming Set of the Week - January 27, 2009

By Barbara Hummel to Set of the Week | Jan 27, 2009 06:30AM

IM practice this week, with kicking and sculling.


Breaststroke - Shark-Fin Kick

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | Jan 20, 2009 08:00AM

So you've been working on a nice, undulating breaststroke... getting your body to ride up and down and flow through the water. Now along comes a drill that looks like a throwback to the days of waterbug, flat breaststroke.


Training - Water Polo Block

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Jan 13, 2009 12:16PM

Working the inner thigh for breaststroke, as well as developing quick, explosive power for starts, turns, and general racing is always a great idea, but sometimes tough to do in our sport.


Freestyle - 6-Kick Switch

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Jan 06, 2009 08:58AM

Consistent, quick kicking, combined with a stable body roll, helps you move everything forward when you're swimming freestyle. This drill gives you enough time to work on both.


Swimming Set of the Week 2 - January 6, 2009

By Glenn Mills to Set of the Week | Jan 06, 2009 08:30AM

A couple sets featuring pulling and kicking, and starting to focus on raw speed. Remember: When you're doing sets with a speed focus, don't swim the slow part too fast.


Breaststroke - Timing the Kick

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | Dec 09, 2008 09:34AM

A great coach recently said that the biggest problem with breaststroke is "the kick." This confirms our belief that working on when and how you initiate the kick is a much bigger concern than most people think.


Backstroke - Partner Pusher

By Glenn Mills to Backstroke | Dec 02, 2008 07:59AM

Great backstroke drills are hard to come by, so when a Canadian coaching friend suggested this one, we had to post it as soon as possible.


November 4, 2008 - Election Day Practice

By Glenn Mills to Gold (Advanced) | Nov 04, 2008 08:00AM

Here's a practice created by our local state representatives. Should be interesting to try, but pay attention.
