Dryland Activities:

Question of the Day: How should your belly look when you swim FR?
Correct = Big belly walk across the room
Wrong = 4 situps, 2 pushups, and lay on your back and do 5 big belly breaths.

Warmup in water:

100 IM Kick
2 x 25 position 11.

Review 3 things for Streamline before first 25.
1) Lock your thumb.
2) Squeeze your ears (back of head).
3) Look down (with your whole face).
Review 3 things for Position 11 before second 25:
1) Keep your arms straight.
2) Stay at the surface (even when you breathe).
3) Look down (with your whole face).

Split Up into 2 Groups

Group 1

3 x SL + 3 FR + lay on side one arm in 11, face down and float with 10 kicks.

Goal is laying on the side. Avoid belly laying. Most swimmers will get confused with the arm raised forward and will put it in the air and look up. Goal is looking down, nose in armpit. “Smell your sticky armpits.”

Group 2

3 x SL + 3 FR D: Fists

Do three strokes of freestyle with hands held in a fist. Focus on pushing water back and down with a high elbow underwater.

Get back together in one group
