Practice of the Week 01 Fall 2018

Week01F2018THE BASICSTHE BASICS
Week 1 – 8/06 to 8/11 – Fall 2018

STREAMLINE GLIDE:
Every time you dive or push off a wall. Hand on hand, 4 fingers on 4 fingers, thumb of the hand on top holds on to heel of the hand below. Lock your elbows, set your arms right behind your ears, and turn your body into a spear.

COUNT STROKES:
How do you know what you are doing if you do not count your strokes? Counting strokes helps you to focus on the task, you cannot think about anything else, it allows you to concentrate and maintain the correct intensity during each swim. To identify what intensity you are training at, improve like you never thought it was possible, learn to swim slow and get fast, practice doing drills and skills that help you to live in the water, touch water efficiently. To learn how to use the letter/number methodology, please go to TIPS: Technique Instructions for Perfect Swimming:

PAY ATTENTION:
Count your strokes and monitor your heart rate you will optimize your training. If you know your time, you are really paying attention. Training is about going FAST at the right times, as fast as YOU can, easy enough so you last every set, all out! Swimming “hard” all the time can be hazardous to your style and speed. Know at what pace you need to train every set
Remember:
Why swim? If you can fly!
WARM UP:
KRLS – IM: Do one length, 25 yards or meters, of Kick, Right arm, Left arm, Swim in each of the 4 strokes, of the Individual Medley. When you do the KICK segment, stay on the streamline position until you need to breathe; on flY, breasT, & freE cross your thumbs and your hands, side by side, become your kick board, on bacK you stay at streamline position the whole way, but when you need to breathe, break surface and continue kicking the rest of the length. On RIGHT/LEFT Arms, begin swimming the lap with the arm that you will use and on the first stroke place the other arm at your side. On fly breathe to the side of the arm that strokes, make sure it is perfectly straight at the elbow. On back roll out both shoulders, pay attention to the roll with the hip opposite the arm that is stroking. On breast touch your heel every time with the fingertips of the arm that stayed down after the underwater pullout. On free breathe to the side of the arm that is down; learn to drive the swimming arm, roll and breathe at the same time, then set the head and stroke. On the SWIM lap do your best balance and distance per stroke (5 strokes or less per length), in the 4 styles

KICKING SET:
{4 x 25 on 60” kk w/board or dolphin under water on your back all the way
{1 x 100 E on 2’, breathe: 3, 5, 7, 9 or 3, 5, 3, 7 depending on ability
Alternate the 4x 25 kick with the 100 hypoxic, do the number of sets recommended or as many as you have time until your workout is over.
Try to break 20” on the 25 kick; if you kick slower than 30”pace go on 75”
If the 2’ interval is not enough to swim, rest and to restart the kick take it to 2:15 or 2:30

DRILL OF THE WEEK:
a) E – Hand on Head: Swim freestyle with one arm only, place the hand of the other arm on the back of your head, and breathe to the side of the arm on the head. Pay attention to how you drive the swimming arm, roll the hips and shoulders together, and breathe when the elbow points to the sky, alternate the swimming arm each lap.
b) E – Hand on Waist: Swim freestyle with one arm only, place the back of the hand of the other arm on your back at your waist, and breathe to the side of the arm on your waist. Pay attention to how you drive the swimming arm, roll the hips and shoulders together, and breathe when the elbow points to the sky, switch the swimming arm each lap.

CODES:
BB&DPS – Best Balance & Distance Per Stroke: 5 strokes or less in the 4 styles in a short course pool, 10 strokes or less in long course – “Tai Chi Swimming.” Please go to swimgym.net find the sections of T.I.P.S. for a more detailed explanation.

Description of Training Set: 25’ x (5 x 100 /10”)w/30” – During 25 minutes, you swim sets of 5 one-hundreds taking 10 seconds to rest after each and taking 30 seconds rest after 5.

TRI-ATHLETE NOTES:
During warm-up triathletes are encouraged to swim the 4 styles, it is warm-up for the entire musculoskeletal system; furthermore, swimming breaststroke can help in a race situation in the event of a foot or calf cramp, the breast kick requires to flex the foot, the way to get rid of said cramps; swimming backstroke will help the triathletes to ‘find core’, connecting the hands to the power source, the hip rotation, while keeping the head set, (no need to turn the head to breathe); the butterfly, will make you more aquatic. When swimmers do Individual Medley: Y, K, T, and E: FLY, BACK, BREAST, FREE; Tri-athletes swim: N, P, F, B: No equipment, Paddles, Fins, Both

COUNTING STROKES:
1 stroke in Y and T is one extension to the front end; count the letter at the breath and the number at the “glide.” 1 stroke in E and K is counted when both arms have completed a revolution, the letter for one hand, and the number for the other hand; count when the revolution is completed at hand entry. The recommended “Number of Strokes OB” over best is for short course pools, if you train in a long course pool double the recommended number and add a stroke. Obviously, the lack of turn and the extra distance makes a difference. For example if the set reads swim at 1 ½ to 2 ½ OB, it means that in the long course pool you will swim at 4 to 6 strokes over your best stroke count. We know that when you take more strokes you swim faster, up to a point that your style may suffer or tire you too quickly. Pay attention: count strokes. When equipment such as paddles and/or fins are used deduct ½ stroke from the OB for each accessory that you wear. Do you want to learn more?
