We did these two parallel kick sets recently because we only have enough Drag Sox for 1/2 of my group to wear at one time. Prior to this, we had mostly used the Sox for short bouts of underwater kicking and sprint swimming. I loved this set — it was something a little different that really made them push themselves. We were in a 25m pool.
Group A did:
9 x 50 flutter kick with Drag Sox and board @ 1:40.
While Group B did:
10 x 75 flutter kick with board Descend 1-5 and 6-10 @1:30
Then switch sets.
One of our favorite ways to start practice is w/ a good quote. Here’s a bunch to try, conveniently divided by the occasion in which you might want to use them: https://swimmingwizard.com/e-books/
