All Strokes - Swimmer's Snorkel

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Jun 04, 2013 05:30AM

We've all either seen, or frequently use, a swimmer's snorkel. Here are a couple points to focus on next time you strap one to your head.

A couple oldies as we celebrate one of the greatest tools in swimming.


Main Set Wednesday - November 18, 2010

LOTS of arm use this morning... yes, that means pulling.


All Strokes - Hotel Pool Sculling

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Nov 16, 2010 08:57AM

Every once in a while I get a question about what to do when swimmers travel and end up at a hotel that has an "Olympic-size pool"... like the one shown here.


Freestyle - EVF Drill

EVF(Early Vertical Forearm) Drill will help you isolate the initial point of connection for the freestyle catch.


Freestyle - Flutter Wall Kick

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Mar 23, 2010 07:06AM

Working flutter kick is typically a standard part of practice. Here's a fun twist sure to build up some lactic acid in your thighs.


Freestyle - Catch-Up Catch

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Dec 29, 2009 06:00AM

Talk about a quick drill, here's one. This drill can be done during a kick set, or as a stand-alone drill.


Freestyle - Shoulder Catch

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Dec 08, 2009 09:06AM

Developing an early catch in freestyle is extremely important for all swimmers, but it's just not easy for all swimmers.


Breaststroke - Wall Pull

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | Nov 25, 2008 09:28AM

Knowing how to move your hands side to side in breaststroke, rather than pulling back is a skill all swimmers need to learn. This "fun" drill is a great way to see if you're able to do it effectively.


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.


Breaststroke - Snorkel Pull

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | Oct 28, 2008 11:20AM

This drill is simple to do, and helps you work on a few key aspects for fast breaststroke. An added benefit of using the snorkel is that you don't have to hear your coach (or your swimmers, in my case) while they yell, or complain.

You'll have to look closely to find out why this picture means so much. Give a guess and I'll let you in on the motivating aspect behind this picture in a few days.


10/28/08 Stroke Practice

By Glenn Mills to Gold (Advanced) | Oct 28, 2008 08:28AM

Heavy breaststroke practice which requires good speed as the intervals get shorter but also doesn't overload the breaststroke swim too much by mixing it with freestyle. Hopefully, this means the stroke can stay more technically correct through the set.

In this week's pic, we feature a Masters swimmer during a pull set. Tell us what you think of this picture.

Now that you're a few weeks into a new season, your shoulders SHOULDN'T be hurting but, in case they are, here's an IM kick set that will give them (and only them) a rest. This one's worth trying even if your shoulders are fine.
