100 IM Kick

2 x 25 Position 11

Question of the Day: What is “drag” and how does it affect your swimming?
Y = Sit on floor with excellent streamline arms and back, legs crossed. Minimize drag
N = Drag your body along the black line pressing as much as your self to the floor as possible.

Split up into two groups:

Group 1:

3 x SL + 5 kicks in position 11 + 1 breath to side in position 1, then 5 kicks in position 1 with face down.

Do a streamline with all three things. At surface kick in position 11. Put one arm at hips, keeping the other arm extended forward above the shoulder on the surface.

Take one breath to side, continuing to kick.

Look down again, and kick in position 1 for 5 more kicks. The goal is side breaths.

Group 2:

3 x SL + 3 FREE + Flip

Strong freestyle kick throughout.
Focus on arms reaching to 11, head aiming straight down, and power with each stroke.

Get back together into one group

4 x 25: 1+2 BK K with good posture F. 3 + 4 FR no F

2 x SL on back
