We did a version of the following kick set to challenge our dolphin kicking ability and to probe the limits of our ability to kick fast underwater. We used Finis Tempo Trainers and did the first round with the beeping tempo set at .60, second round at .50, third round at .45, fourth round at .40. Some swimmers were able to maintain an effective dolphin kick down to .40. Others lost “hold” on the water and became inefficient. This is potentially useful information for our training.
4 Rounds of:
8 x 25 @ :35
10 underwater kicks at TT tempo, then swim ez the rest of the way
1 x 50 ez free B3
