These video drills have been created from and are specific to the Silver/Gold training plans to be used for maximum success.  Gain access to over 25 detailed training plans with online coaching.

The first three videos, 'Getting the Feel for the Water', 'Swim Drill Basics', and 'Single Arm Drill' can be freely seen by all members.  Upgrade to a Silver/Gold membership to view the entire series to use with the training plans here.

Whenever you see a drill or a workout type that you are unfamiliar with in your training plan, come back to this page (Training Plans --> Using Your Plan) to reference the video drill if it is listed here. 

 *Note, your specific silver or gold training plan may or may not use all of the drills below.

SWIM GENERAL

Are you a new swimmer?


Are you having trouble getting comfortable in the water? Do you have difficulty breathing?  See the following video drill:

SWIM FORM DRILLS
In the Silver/Gold training plans, if the swim just calls for 'Drill' or '200 yards Drill', then use one of the 4 drills below.  If you know your weakness, use the drill appropriate for that weakness, or else rotate evenly through these drills.

You can also certainly work on 1-2 drills in the 'warmup' part if you need the extra practice.  Just replace 200-400 yards/meters of the warmups with the drills.  Keep the drills limited to 50yards/meters with a rest, then repeat.
