Freestyle - Loper Drill

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Aug 12, 2008 10:05AM

In watching the Olympics, we can't help but notice the impact that "lopers" are having in freestyle. While high-rate freestylers and straight-arm freestylers have been getting the most attention this year for the speeds they've achieved, lopers are certainly making a HUGE impact.

Breaststroke - Early Catch Hands

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | Jul 18, 2008 08:04AM

If you're an older (Masters) breaststroker, you may or may not know how to REALLY sprint in breaststroke. Catching the water immediately at the beginning of the pull becomes essential to really swimming fast. To illustrate this very small fine point, we've recruited one of the fastest breaststrokers in history.


Butterfly - 3-3-3

By Glenn Mills to Butterfly | Jul 18, 2008 08:03AM

Butterfly 3-3-3 is a simple drill that allows you to train fly longer, and keep your rhythm in check. We asked our friend McKenzie to demonstrate the drill (one of her favorites), and show how it's helped her develop her butterfly.


Backstroke - Spin Drill

By Glenn Mills to Backstroke | Jul 08, 2008 08:05AM

Backstroke Spin Drill is one of the most FUN drills in swimming because it lets you do all the things you’re not supposed to do, and lets you do them in a BIG way. No splash? You want to be covered in spray when you do this drill. Stay hidden and balanced? Fugettaboutit. Look up? Rotate your hips? Soft, clean hand entry? No way! No time!

Freestyle - 5-Count Switch

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Apr 18, 2008 08:00AM

Staying in balance in freestyle is one of the best ways to maintain speed. Figuring out how to control your bodyline to OBTAIN that balance, especially when you're completing your pull, is one of the fine points of freestyle.
