Bob Bowman Shares 200 Butterfly Training Insight (Video Interview)

See video above with Tom Luchsinger breaking down the Bob Bowman butterfly set:

30 x 100m on 1:30

 – 50 free under 35 seconds

– climb out and up to the blocks

– dive a 50m fly striving to hold sub 28 seconds

NBAC Coach Bob Bowman knows how to train butterflyers. Aside for Michael Phelps, there are many swimmers who have made huge gains under his tutelage but didn’t necessarily get media attention.  Tom Luchsinger is Bowman’s newest fly specialist.  After doing sets like the one above, it’ll be interesting to see how Luchsinger improves on his 1:55 200m butterfly personal best time.
