Main Set Wednesday - Freestyle Technique, then Some 200s

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Nov 28, 2012 12:02PM

First part of today's practice was all about technique and building awareness of rotation, kick, and hand entry. Then we carried the focus points into a set of 200s.

Want to see if you've REALLY mastered streamline? Try holding streamline as you spin in 360 rotation.


Backstroke - Cup-on-Head Balance

By Glenn Mills to Backstroke | Aug 14, 2012 08:00AM

It's been six years since we posted this drill, and 100 years since it was first introduced, but a better visual was necessary.

A little technique work to start the week right, with inspiration from Go Swim Freestyle with Jason Lezak.


Swimming Pic of the Week - Jessica Hardy

Just back from the west coast, spent 12 hours capturing video. So much fantastic stuff to choose from, but I really like this pic for today.


Freestyle - Ankle Pull Buoy

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Feb 14, 2012 10:06AM

Maintaining a stable core is an important part of a good freestyle. This standard drill is a good one to help accomplish this.

Freestyle - Underwater Free

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Jul 13, 2011 07:49AM

Being able to focus on one specific aspect of your stroke sometimes takes isolation. Swimming under water certainly gives you that.


Backstroke - Opposite Shoulder Single Arm

By Glenn Mills to Backstroke | Dec 14, 2010 08:48AM

Good backstroke requires a certain amount of rotation, but this rotation also has benefits in reducing the resistance you create recovering your arms.

I often hear coaches say that backstroke is freestyle upside down. They're both long-axis strokes, seem to use the same leveraging actions, so they should be in the same family. So can you apply to backstroke the same basic principles that you use with freestyle?


Swimming Set of the Week - June 17, 2008

By Glenn Mills to Set of the Week | Jun 17, 2008 07:06AM

I've been reminded recently that swimmers can become obsessed with stroke count -- usually a LOW stroke count. But we all have to remember that lower isn't always better. It's really all about finding YOUR stroke count.


Working on Rotation

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Jun 12, 2008 07:00AM

Two main sets to choose from. In one lane, we'll have 3 swimmers sharing 1 Tech Toc and 1 Hydro Hip, working on rotation in freestyle and backstroke. In the other lanes, the freestylers and triathletes will have a freestyle set with descending sendoffs, simulating race-day fatigue in a distance event.
