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 middle scull position is done under the shoulders with in high elbow position sculling under your shoulder base with fast sculling with a very light kick but not much propulsion. The ankle bands are the TYR rally training straps. a D band could be supplemented as well. First colony turns are when you dive down under the underwater at the flags, complete dolphin kicks to the wall and then three at, perform at submerged turn and a normal (fast) breakout working on a tight tuck position.
