The Workout

Challenging workout with lots of kicking and speed demands! Use BOBs to remind swimmers how to breathe, release excess CO2, and find a rhythm and not holding their breath when not needed.

Warm Up [1300]
    300 loosen choice
    6 x 50 choice @:10R 1. kick, 2. drill, 3. swim – technique [then repeat!]
    4 x 75 choice @:10R odds: prefect technique, evens: build by 25 but stay aerobic
    2 x 100 start each with 4-6 BOBs, then free aerobic @:20R
    1 x 200 free Pyramid with paddles and fins (build the first half, into reverse build for second half)
Main Set
    3 x [500 each]
        3 x 50 kick [R1 = 4x on 1:10 or :15R, R2 = 3x on 1:05 or :10R, R23 = 2x on 1:00 or :05R)
        [COACH: help swimmers find the right interval to be challenged; if using fins, should be :5-:10 faster – this gets harder with each round]
        100 Free – no gear – great technique (:15R)
        3 – 5 BOBs before…
        100 FAST [round 1 = 90%, round 2 = 95%, round 3 = 100%, OR try to make each round faster]
        [:30R max]
        150 choice recovery, option to PULL
        [:45R max between rounds]

Cool Down
    100 kick Reverse Build – okay to use fins, start at 80%
    2 x 100 swim Reverse Build, 1. start at 90% > easy, 2. start at 80% > easy @:10-15R
