More on that whole stroke balance and symmetry thing with Chris, Misa and Kate
3×100 (50 single arm or rhythm drill/50 swim)
3×50 kick, descend 1-3
6×25 swim build
odds free, evens nonfree
3 rounds of:
rd 1: breathe only to your left side
rd 2: breathe only to your right side
rd 3: your choice
1×200, breathing 25 left side/25 right side
1×300, breathing bilaterally
15 sec rest between each swim.
The focus on this set is not speed or intensity. It’s trying to get a sense of stroke imbalance or asymmetry. How does your breathing pattern affect these? If such things are there, how do you correct them? Fins, paddles and pulling gear are all welcome on this set, since the breathing patterns are the points of emphasis.
