    1. Hi Paul,
      We use the term "deep practice" to refer to whole-stroke swimming (as opposed to drill) where we are focusing on a specific part of the stroke. For example, in breaststroke, we might focus on fast hand recovery for a 25, then focus on hitting a good body line on another 25. The idea is to be narrowing/deepening our focus on a particular aspect without doing a drill to isolate it.

    2. Hi Ryan,
      Thank you very much for your explanation. Am clear now. Thanks also for the sets that you post. I have used many elements of them. Thank you. Our age groupers here in the Highlands of Scotland have always given me positive feedback when I use your input. Thanks again Paul
