Above, the head coach of the Texas Longhorns men’s swimming & diving teams, Eddie Reese, talks about his team’s performance at the 2015 Big 12 Championship meet.
Even in this modern era where swimming media coverage has exploded, it’s rare for coaches of the stature of Reese to open up their playbooks and give very specific, workout-driven details about how they’ve had success.
On Saturday, talking to SwimSwam’s Mel Stewart, Reese has done just that – and reveals a little secret to his team’s success and the incredible butterfly class that he’s developed. Specifically, Reese says that in every practice for the last 18 months, his team has done 30-40 25’s butterfly kicking.
Reese also talks about the most surprising result of the meet for his team and the atmosphere at the Big 12 Championships
