Sample Workouts

Let’s work on Pressing the water. This is the first phase of your underwater pull and immediately follows the “Catch.” So, you have anchored your hand in stable water and now it’s time to start pulling. During this workout experiment with various hand pitches. Somewhere around 45 degrees is typical. That means keeping your elbow high and not dropping your wrist. I hope you like this workout!
Today, we’re working on your “feel” of the water. As you glide with your lead hand, you’re using your hand, wrist and forearm to find stable water in which to anchor your hand. Both the Stroke Work and Main sets include a round of 75s. The Race Set includes some speed play. This is a workout that focuses on a small part of your stroke that can make a BIG difference.
Today, we’re going to focus on improving our timing, particularly through the technique of Upfront Swimming. This technique is essential for a seamless and effortless freestyle swim. The goal is to achieve a smooth glide with your leading arm, holding onto that position until your other arm, the pulling arm, enters the water and assumes the leading arm (gliding) role. Have fun!
