When taper time comes and you want to swim your fastest, it's a good idea to sharpen your connection with the water with feel.

The generous sendoffs make this week's set a good choice for speedwork or taper. Make sure you go FAST when you're supposed to go fast...and EASY (but not sloppy) when you're supposed to go easy.

Here's an example of the difference between girls and boys during taper (and pretty much all the time). A short example of pool entries. Enjoy.

There are sets that ask swimmers to descend time while maintaining a certain sendoff. There are sets that ask swimmers to maintain time while tightening the sendoff. There are sets that ask swimmers to descend time AND tighten the sendoff. This week's set is a little different in that it asks swimmers to descend time while ascending (increasing) the sendoff.

All Strokes - Taper Push Ups

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

Sometimes the toughest thing in any season is the time between two or more championship meets. You can rest completely for one meet, and the qualify for another... NOW what do you do? Now you have to swim fast again... in TWO WEEKS!

Here's a short, quick set that combines stroke-counting and speed. It works well on the day before a meet, when you don't want to do too much, but want to know that your engines are firing and that you can generate easy speed.

Got championships? This week's set can help you taper, but can also be a good anaerobic set at any point in the season.
