One of the greatest challenges in swimming is the ability to maintain proper technique outside of drills and slow-paced sets. If you or your swimmers are having trouble managing technique at high speeds, try using tools that assist with both elements. For best results, focus on sets that call for descending speed, then gradually incorporate tools that will help ramp up the speed while also reinforcing correct form.
Try the swimming set below to focus on maintaining technique AND swimming fast:
