100 IM Kick

2 x 25 Position 11

Question of the Day: What does LCM mean? “Long course meters”
Y = 25 jump and Anything swim
N = 25 push off side and backstroke swim

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 on belly + 3 HLBw/R

Head Lead Balance with Rotation

Body in soldier position, kick with face up.

Rotate hips and shoulders from parallel to surface to perpendicular to surface. Rotate through both sides.

Rotation Drill.

Get back together into one group

2 x 25 Position 11

Focus on three things:

1) Look Down when not breathing
2) Keep arms straight
3) Stay on the surface

Arms are over the head with elbows straight, hands stacked over shoulders. Kick freestyle kick with face down. To breathe, lift head up quickly. Avoid sculling or doggie paddle to breathe.

1) Breathe Quickly, more often
