100 IM Kick
2 x 25 Position 11
Question of the Day: What do we mean when we talk about a “line” in swimming?
Y = 25 FR
N = 25 FLY Kick
Split up into two groups:
3 x SL + “Flex”
Hold SL throughout, and push off with feet flexed, legs straight and held together, only feet are turning out.
This is to get in habit of flexing or flaring feet wide.
Diving – Standing dive from the block
Stand with foot with toes curled over the edge. Rest weight on the forward leg.
Second leg is slightly back, though knees are near each other. Lift back heel off the block.
Swimmer waits until they hear, “take your mark.”
Bend at the waist, grasping the forward edge of the block outside the foot already curled over edge. Use both fingers and thumbs in front.
Look at back leg.
Fart at the moon (to get hips up).
Launch forward when you hear “go.”
Get back together into one group
