FINIS Set Of The Week: Sculling For Days

Today’s FINIS Set of the Week comes from Jill Dahle.  She is the Global Director of Sales and Marketing at FINIS and has been with the company for over three years.  She is a former swimmer at Loyola Marymount University.  Jill is a very active athlete in her post-collegiate career as she just recently completed her first Ironman race and swims on a Masters team in Oakland, California.  

This is one of my favorite sets to do during my hardcore training.  And I mean those training days where you are looking to get that heart-rate up, pound the legs and walk away from practice really feeling like you left it all in the pool.

For me, those practices I’m talking about usually had a lot of anaerobic work, a ton of fast kicking and then some sculling to work out your arms.  The following set is done with my favorite paddle, the Iso paddle.  I love them because it really trains my triceps when I have them in the outside configuration, and then my pectorals and biceps when I wear them with the inside configuration. Check out this set below and let us know what you think:
