Kick Practice Guide
Designed by Coach Dinah
This 5 week practice guide focuses on the kick in freestyle swimming. Understanding the role of the legs in swimming is vital in order to save energy, improve overall speed and give you more options when you want to swim faster, or swim as easily as possible. The proper coordination is challenging and requires dedicated focus. This is the perfect guide to help you “kick” any bad kicking habits.
Fresh Freestyle practice guides are designed for those who already own “Fresh Freestyle – 99 Practices for Triathletes and Swimmers“. These guides lead you week by week through a progressive sequence of swimming skills, swimming drills, dry land training and swimming workouts directly from the book. These guides consist of sequences of practices from the book to help give structure and order to your training.
Integrate our guides into your regular swim training plan to help train for your next event while working on your weaknesses at the same time. Use our recommendations to substitute for any “drill” sections in masters swimming or your triathlon training plan. Stop guessing about what practices pair well together, and just use our suggestions. You can follow all or part of a practice guide if you only need a 3 week tuneup, and you can blend two guides together as well.
The possibilities are endless for helping improve your swim workouts and help you stay mentally engaged in you pool or open water practices.
