As a coach, I have a hard time striking a healthy balance with kick sets – it can feel like all or nothing. My swimmers often perceive a kick set as social time and the effort just isn’t there – so to compensate, I make the intervals challenging and often leave a large part of the group in the dust. Am I alone here??? As a solution to this, I’ve been using fin work to drive the intensity, without relying on crazy intervals to demand effort.

2 Rounds with Fins – preferably a power fin like the FINIS Edge.

2 x 25 Dolphin Kick with a board
1 x 75 Flutter Kick with a board Medium Effort

2 x 25 Dolphin Kick Streamline on back, FAST

The set looks so random.


How about just don’t do kick sets?


They need to double the repeats rather than run set twice.
