Two Kinds of Pain

Ryan Woodruff
Head Coach
Lynchburg YMCA

I needed some swimmers to do distance freestyle pace.  Others to do some fast stroke work.  22 swimmers in 5 lanes with 1 coach... how to manage?  Parallel sets that allowed me to go back and forth timing the two groups.

  1. Is "deep" referring to the depth of the pull? Thanks

    1. We use "deep practice" to mean whole-stroke swimming where the swimmer focuses on one particular aspect of the stroke. For free, it might be a high-elbow catch or breathing low and fast, for example.
