5 by 5 Turn Sprint

Quick video showing my athletes do a set of 50’s of what we call the “5 by 5 Turn Sprint”. Work within the flags, alternating fast/easy but all with perfect turns.

Basically, I think that many coaches do not emphasize the importance of the turn. I guess the term means 5 meters before and after the turn.
Watching the video I noticed that some swimmers slow down when they take their first breath after the turn and disturb their stream lining.
In my opinion it would be more beneficial to emphasize a none-breathing break out after the turn.
