Pacific Swimming

PRACTICE WORKOUTS

Workouts will be posted here for master group swimmers to utilize during lap swim.  These workouts will get progressively harder as we get back into shape.  Feel free to modify to your desired yardage or intensity. We have a fresh start at swimming.  Let’s be mindful of our old habits that we were trying to remove and new habits that we are trying to create. Good habits:

  1. Streamline+dolphin kicks off every wall
  2. Don’t breath on the first stroke
  3. Maintain good body position: if you’re feeling your body position slip due to fatigue, take some rest
  4. Understanding areas of the stroke to relax and areas of the stroke to push. Think equal and opposite reactions, push down to go up, push back to go forward.
  5. Rotate

Bad habits:

  1. Laziness
  2. Lack of focus/intention
  3. Loose streamline/body position
  4. Pulling before establishing catch position
