All Strokes - Trailing-Hands Sculling

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Jul 09, 2013 06:00AM

Watch the great swimmers' hands, and you'll see how soft they are when they swim. They're always searching to find that constant connection with the water.

By Glenn Mills to Pic of the Week | Apr 04, 2013 08:48AM

Masters keep the nicest things from their past.


Equipment - Drag+Fly

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Dec 26, 2012 10:00AM

If you're looking to add some resistance to a particular swimmer or stroke, consider the Drag+Fly. We were sent one of these a couple months ago, and thought we'd give it a try.


Eney Buoy & D-Band Preview

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Oct 18, 2012 04:00PM

A couple great swimmers sent me a couple new products they developed. Turns out they work great together.


Main Set Monday - Ankle Pull-Buoy

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Sep 24, 2012 02:09PM

In what turns out to be a bit more torturous than it initially sounds, incorporating this drill for an entire practice keeps you thinking.

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Sep 11, 2012 10:00AM

Main Set Tuesday - Pull on the Lane Line

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | May 22, 2012 02:18PM

Never miss the opportunity to teach. Yesterday's practice showed some consistent errors in the masters group, so we decided to teach with a fun set.


Main Set Wednesday - May 16, 2012

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | May 16, 2012 03:25PM

Borrowing from an old drill, here's a fun set sure to get you more aware of your hands.


Backstroke - Pulling on the Lane Line Again

By Glenn Mills to Backstroke | May 15, 2012 08:28AM

Revisiting an old drill originally posted in 2003, some things just never go out of style.


All Strokes - The Crutch

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Apr 30, 2012 05:50PM

This may be seen as more rant than drill, and some will like it, and some will not.  Either way, the pull buoy is what it is... a useful piece of swim equipment.


Swimming Set of the Week - March 16, 2012

By Barbara Hummel to Set of the Week | Mar 16, 2012 12:33AM

All Strokes - Forearm Strength

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Mar 13, 2012 08:00AM

If you're looking for something to strengthen your forearms, especially for breaststroke, here's a quick drill that will do the trick.

Butterfly - Perp Drill

By Glenn Mills to Butterfly | Oct 04, 2011 07:13AM

If you've ever seen any TV police drama, there will be a scene where the suspect is placed against the wall, hands high, and pressed forward so the police can search him. This position just happens to be a great example of the press on butterfly.
