For Age Groupers, 11-14 

5x200  add one Br  continuous Fly @ 
Swimmers start with Pullout + 1 Breaststroke cycle. Continue 25m length fly. 
 As the set implies "Add One" Breaststroke cycle  each length until swimmer completes entire length with breaststroke only.  ie. Length #2 = pullout + 2 Br cycles, Length #3 pullout +3 Br cycles  Length #4 = Pullout + 4 Br cycles etc.

They'll learn to maximize pullouts and breaststroke cycles to avoid the fly

  1. In breaststroke and butterfly, 1 cycle = 1 stroke.
    In backstroke and freestyle, 1 cycle = 2 strokes.

    Essentially, 1 cycle is one complete repetition of the swimming motion for a particular style.
