Our breaststrokers liked this set.  Technical focus early with some descending 200s (150s) for slower swimmers/non-breaststrokers.

Drill explanations:
R arm and L arm Br = single arm breaststroke done with the other arm straight in front of the swimmer.
3K-1P = 3 kicks-1 pull.  Swimmer does two additional kicks in every cycle, while the swimmer is in the glide position.
Fast Heels = This is just a “deep practice” focus point where we swim breaststroke emphasizing rapidly drawing the heels toward the butt.
