Finally, some sprint work to add to the Coach’s Log! Utah Head Coach Joe Dykstra and the Ute’s sprint coach Jonas Persson take us through a morning sprint set in Salt Lake City.
The set includes some dryland aspects and the coaches discuss their beliefs about the transfer of strength from land to the water. They talk about how this set is one of two power sets that the Ute sprinters do during the week and how each set addresses different kinds of power. Here’s what the set looks like:
5 ea. on back flutter SA or 10 DA med ball throws…explosive
3 bucket swims @90,95,100% on 2:00…count strokes and add up with time
