Each week I share a swim, bike, run, plyometric or strength workout from my training. Give it a shot and leave your feedback in the comments.
The winter is a great time to work on your stroke and efficiency in the water. I’m in the middle of a huge technique-focused block of swim training where 3-4 sessions per week are entirely drill oriented. Here’s one workout I’ve done several times. It’s also easy to switch out different drills during the first set depending on your needs or focus. Give it a shot and leave your feedback in the comments.
3x drills as:
–4×50 drill (1: skulling; 2: single arm drill; 3: 6-3-6 drill)
–5x 45 second vertical kick / 15 second recovery
