By Glenn Mills to Gold (Advanced) | 15 days ago

Here's a fun set that challenges and builds team spirit.


Backstroke - Med Ball Kick

By Glenn Mills to Backstroke | Aug 27, 2014 06:00AM

Not all drills are about body position, and this one sure isn't.


Freestyle - Reduced Stroke 100s

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Aug 20, 2014 08:03AM

Here's a simple aspect you can add to any set to give you some insight on what you actually know about your stroke.


Breaststroke - Flip Turns With No Pushoff

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | Aug 06, 2014 08:00AM

Nearly 7 years ago, we published a drill that showed breaststrokers using flip turns and no underwater pull to better simulate long course training in a short course pool. Here's another level to that.


Set The Limits

By Glenn Mills to Motivational Articles | Jun 18, 2014 06:06AM

How do you know when what you're doing in practice is unproductive? When is working harder, just not doing what you want it to do in the long run? Here are a couple ideas that can help.


Freestyle - Fin Sprint

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | May 21, 2014 06:00AM

When you're allowed to use fins to go fast in freestyle... USE them!


Main Set Monday - 50s!

By Glenn Mills to Gold (Advanced) | Feb 04, 2014 02:33PM

This is a set that will challenge all swimmers on all levels. Don't be wimpy on the first 50, or it will be too easy.


Freestyle - Building a Longer Stroke

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Jan 21, 2014 05:01PM

If you want to create effective changes in a swimmer, it takes time. Using the Tempo Trainer can help bring about that long-term change.


All Strokes - Grit Your Teeth and Close Your Eyes

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Jan 14, 2014 08:00AM

The next time your coach asks you to work on a particular skill, and they tell you with a sense of urgency, or demand, give this a try.


Main Set Monday - Longer Lunchtime Swim

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Dec 30, 2013 03:38PM

We don't typically have much opportunity to swim long swims at the lunchtime practice. Many people show, and it's a short course practice, so long swims would create too much chaos.


All Strokes - Partner Sculling

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | Dec 03, 2013 08:45AM

Building a feel for the water as well as team bonding, this drill is good for many reasons.


Main Set Monday - How To Say 15 x 200s Nicely

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Dec 02, 2013 01:36PM

Getting your swimmers to swim 15 x 200s without them actually feeling that boredom that can sometimes come with it is always a challenge. Breaking up the set helps.


Main Set Friday - Day After Turkey 25s

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Nov 29, 2013 01:33PM

The set sounds easy, unless you do exactly what's asked.


Main Set Wednesday - IMs... Kinda

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Nov 27, 2013 01:26PM

Here's an IM set that puts the emphasis on good, strong, stroke swimming.


Main Set Monday - Pace

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Nov 25, 2013 05:48PM

Here's a short set to help swimmers learn what it feels like to swim at a specific pace.
