12/06/14 Workout Recap - Arms, Legs, Arms & Legs

So, we started off the workout with the "legs crossed at ankles" pull set and it is always so surprising to see which swimmers excel and which swimmers struglle with this partiicular "drill".  Remember, the goal is to hone in on body position - what do YOU need to do to keep yourself high in the water, even though your lower legs/feet are like a heavy anchor?  - Suck in your stomach, point your lower back to the ceiling, keep your head lower in the water, point your toes...these are just some of the ways you can tweak your stroke to lift yourself and be high on the water during your REGULAR swimming, too.

w/u: 200 swim/200 kick/200 pull

MS1: 10 x 75 @ 1:05/1:15/1:30 - cross legs at ankles and focus on body position for entire set

MS2 10 x 75 with FINS @ 1:05/1:15/1:30 - focus on kicking this time, maintaining that body position you practiced in MS1.  Build within the 75.

MS3: 6 x 100 as......100 ALL OUT (choice)/100 recovery
                              100 ALL OUT (choice)/100 recovery
                              100 ALL OUT (choice)/100 recovery
