Breaststroke - 3 Fly 3 Breast

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | Mar 01, 2011 06:56AM

Obviously, this can also be a butterfly drill, but chances are you'll feel the adjustments, or at least the ability to vary your timing more easily in breaststroke than in butterfly.


All-Strokes - Underwater Tempo-Trainer Dolphins

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Jul 07, 2010 06:00AM

In case you missed the Olympics last week, and in case you missed how swimming was sorta in the limelight, you may have also missed seeing how important underwater dolphins are to a swimmer's success. As a hint, it's the first thing we've started working on... even for us old Masters swimmers.


More Pace Work

By Glenn Mills to Gold (Advanced) | Jul 02, 2010 11:29AM

The clock is ticking on the Kingdom swim, and while I've been spending more and more time in the open water, we can't always just hop in the bay.


Freestyle - Connection Variation

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Jun 22, 2010 08:05AM

Here's a fun and challenging drill that can help you learn rhythm and develop power for your freestyle.

Freestyle - Single-Arm Variations

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Apr 28, 2009 11:00AM

While we've focused on single-arm freestyle before, we gave only one side of the story. Since freestyle is the mainstay of swim training, here are three single-arm variations to help keep things interesting.


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.


Breaststroke - Building Rhythm

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | Nov 04, 2008 08:05AM

With it being election day, we're going to give two variations on this great teaching drill. You could also say that timing an election campaign is as tricky as creating a smooth rhythm in breaststroke. Too much too soon, or too little too late can give or take away the desired results.


Freestyle - Synchro Swim

By Barbara Hummel to Freestyle | Oct 21, 2008 12:01PM

Swimming stroke for stroke with other swimmers is not so easy as it looks. Try it for a fun and challenging set.

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.
