100 HLBw/R w/ FINS on stomach

Question of the Day: Why is knowing how to push against the water with different amounts of force important to swimming?
(Tell a friend the answer)
Correct = 50 BK K w/ FINS
Wrong = 50 Position 11
4 x 25 on 1:00 FREE K w/ board and FINS
Split up into two groups:
Challenge = Water Hits
Throw a water bomb at a friend underwater.
Make an open palm hand, and push the water quickly towards someone.
Do not hit them!
Do it until the person feels the “push” of the water against their belly, against their back, and against their arm.
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.”
Challenge – Make waves without breaking the surface
With both hands underwater, with open palms, push the water out and in as fast as you can, as close to the surface as you can so that you create giant waves between your face and the wall. See if you can get the water to splash over the edge of the pool without letting your hands go above the surface.
3 x SL + 1 BR
1 x 11,E&Breathe, 11 + 1 BR K and glide
Streamline with no kick. Do the arms first, with a breath.
As the arms shoot forward back to 11, initiate the kick.
Snap feet together, and hold in 11 for a long glide.
Move over, return, and repeat.
Get back together into one group
