Backstroke & IM Set with Deep Practice

Ryan Woodruff

We have been using this concept of “Deep Practice” lately with some success.  The idea is that you swim the full stroke (as opposed to drill, where you swim part-stroke) and simply emphasize a particular technical element.  This set is focused on backstroke technique at the beginning and then includes some fatigued backstroke as part of unbalanced 200 IMs, Seemed to do the trick.

Barely legible at the bottom it reads “Fly is always fast” and “use backstroke as primary means of descending.”
