Professional Swim Workouts by Professional Swim Coaches

Jan 28, 2014 – The College of William and Mary

This workout combines power work with different speed elements. We begin the workout with a warm-up that is designed to prepare the whole body for the power circuit.

The circuit begins with a “Gut Check”. A “Gut Check” is where I look for swimmers to volunteer to race an undisclosed distance. The goal is for the athletes to want to race and be ready to race no matter what. Once I have the volunteers I get them up onto the block and announce what yardage they’ll be racing.

Blasters:
A Blaster is where we use parachutes, drop below the water and blow out our air, push off and race for a certain amount of yardage (12.5yds / 15yds / 25yds – adding on equipment as the distance goes up)

Power Towers:
1×25 @ 1:45 (12.5 FS Blast / :10 Pause while Dolphin Kicking with SC / 12.5 Fly Blast)
1×25 @ 1:45 (FS Blast w/ Fins & PD)
1×25 @ 1:45 (12.5 FS Kick / :10 Pause with OVER KICK & SC / 12.5 FS Blast)
1×25 @ 1:45 (FS Blast w/ Fins & PD)
