100 IM Kick

100 FLY K w/ FINS

2 x 25 Position 11 with FINS

Question of the Day: How many 25’s are in a 500 FR?
Answer: 20
Y = 50 FR
N = 50 FLY K

4 x 25 on 1:00 FR w/ FINS

Split up into two groups:

Group 1:

3 x SL + 1 FLY stroke with 3-4 Kicks during arm stroke

No kick on SL, as soon as you start fly arm stroke begin kicking as many times as possible until arms return to 11.

Arms move normal speed.

This is a WRONG way to swim, but done to illustrate how there can be too many kicks in an arm stroke and too few.

Group 2:

3 x SL w/ FLY K

Lock the thumb and squeeze the ears.

Move the hips and legs.

Challenge is to keep the head and arms in SL from waving up and down.

Drive the motion from the chest, rolling down through the belly, hip, and thighs snapping the knees.

Get back together into one group

3 x {

4 x 25 2 strokes FLY w/ FINS + FR the rest of 25.
Focus on: Arms swinging through airplane position and clapping the back of your hands above your head in position 11.


1 x 100 FR K no fins. Can use board.
