Sep 2, 2023 – Swim Team Biel-Bienne (Beluga)

Saturday mornings for the Beluga group start with a short dryland warm-up together with the other development groups at the pool for their practice. Their workout today was a bit lower in volume as we incorporated a skills part focusing on “lines” (off the wall following the push and underwater after the dive).

You will notice some “?” towards the end of this session. This is due to the fact that although I do prepare for their practices, there are always a lot of moving elements with this level of athletes and I usually adapt (or change) things on the fly – meaning sometimes, I forget to do my post-practice “housekeeping” and later miss some details in my notes.
