More Butterfly Snakes

Ryan Woodruff, Lynchburg YMCA

SCM. We have done similar sets before, but doing “Snakes” remains one of my favorite ways to get in a challenging fly set with good technique. We have 5 lanes to work with, so we do 125s swimming up lane 1, returning in lane 2, then lane 3, etc. We split the swimmers up into three levels of ability based on how well they hold together their butterfly strokes under fatigue. We go in order from fastest to slowest and everyone is on the same interval. The fly swimming has to be fast enough to be “in rhythm” and on top of the water.
