FINIS Set of the Week: Just the LEGS

Set of the Week is courtesy of FINIS, a SwimSwam partner.

This week’s set comes from Ross Davenport, a three-time Olympian and a senior account manager for FINIS.

This week, we’re going for a classic kick endurance workout so use it wisely. For optimum body alignment (and shoulder health) we recommend using something like the Alignment Kickboard. This allows swimmers to place their hands just below the surface of the water, allowing them to maintain a proper body position throughout the set – not an easy thing to do!

6 x 25 Nice and Easy
6 x 50 Build Freestyle
3 x 400 Kick with an Alignment Kickboard MAX Effort
6 x 50 Nice and Easy Freestyle
6 x 25 Overkick Freestyle FAST

Although I understand that “overkick” drills help with strength/power, doesn’t it also introduce bad form from the hyper-extended downkicks which increase water resistance and pointless big bubble upkicking?
