Breaststroke Tempo Set with York Swim Club Coach Parker Ramsdell

I did this set (SCM) with my breaststrokers yesterday morning and really enjoyed it.

The 200s provided a solid aerobic touch to the training, and we’ve been really struggling with pullout discipline later in races, thus the no touch walls to put some extra pressure on the lungs on those underwaters.

The 100s w/ tempo trainer set at 04:00 (25-1 stroke/beep; 50-2 strokes/beep; 25-3 strokes/beep) helped them work body line and glide for the first 75, then pick up the tempo on the last 25 helping prime them for the fast 50s to follow.

Total – 3500m

Round 1 – 4x each distance
Round 2 – 3x each distance
Round 3 – 2x each distance
Round 4 – 1x each distance
