Burning Both Ends of the Candle

Erik Wiken, Head Coach
Heartland Aquatics

First time I ran this, kids had never heard of the phrase before and didn't understand why I would call this set that name. After 20 x 25s, they knew why...
1. Partner Up:
-You will need 1 Buoy & 1 Kickboard per tandem, both with center-mount snorkel (HIGHLY recommended)

2. 20 x 25 @ 1:00 (interval & # of repeats according to ability)
(want to make it longer?, suggest breaking @ 1/2 or 1/3s with a 50 easy on same interval)
One person does a 25 sprint scull (hands out in front of snorkel), head in line
The other person does a 25 sprint FR tombstone kick**, head in line
Rotate equipment after each 25

**Tombstone Kick: Stand board on end, grab a 1/2 way and stick bottom half in the water. Board stays vertical.  (We also do tombstone kick sets where the last repeat (usually 25s) we "bury it", board is vertical and totally submerged.)
