Oct 24, 2014 – Limmat Sharks Zurich

This is a sprint focused workout with two focus blocks of racing skills (starts and turns) during the main part of the session. We started out warming everybody up with some 400’s and a short pre-set building up some speed for the skills part.

For the main part, we had two groups – each working for 20′ on either turns or starts and switching after a short rest to allow everyone to get something to drink and walk to the opposite end of the pool.
