Coach Notes

The swim coach was asked to define any shorthand he or she used in this workout. Their notes should provide some additional context to this swimming workout.

The single arm swimming is done with the arm that is not in use, down along the side. Full body rotation needed while trying to anchor and scull to hold water, while the body rotates around the anchored position.

SPY: Strive for air or bubbles when the hand enters.
