Workout Goal:Lengthening Strokes
Total Distance:1750 yards
Notes:This swim workout concentrates on lengthening your stroke and helps you focus on the movement. Be sure to stretch your arm far out in front of you and roll your shoulder into the movement for more reach. On the drills that you only use 1 arm at a time, keep the non working arm extended in front and allow it to roll back as the working arm surges forward. Use the technique of counting strokes per length to gauge if you are becoming more efficient and reducing the number of movements. After you have developed good technique, you might want to time yourself to confirm that your longer strokes are taking less energy and moving you through the water just as quickly.
Please consult your doctor before beginning any type of training program.
