Guppy Challenge, Week-1, Workout-3

=> 4x50yd freestyle, easy, slow, establish a leave interval that gives you 10sec rest between each 50.
=> 4x50yd freestyle, with pull buoy if you have one, endeavoring to keep your body in-line rather than swiveling at the waist.
(If you don’t have a buoy, then with a center snorkel. But not both. Either the buoy or the snorkel. If neither, then fine, simply 2 sets of 4x50yd)
=> 4x50yd kicking. Flutter kick (freestyle kick). Kickboard if you want. I can’t use a kickboard and look forward. Old age, bad neck. Are you like me? Two options: kick on your back, hands over your head facing the opposite wall. Or, with kickboard or without, kick with a snorkel. If you can’t make it across the pool kicking, just keep trying. Keep kicking. Find a method by which forward propulsion happens. Trial and error. It’s frustrating, yes. You’ll get there.

Main set: 4 x 300yd: Just like the 150s, think about technique.

Guppy Challenge, Week-1, Workout-2
=> 6x50yd freestyle, easy, slow, establish a leave interval that gives you 10sec rest between each 50.
=> 3x100yd alternating 1-arm pull and freestyle, moderate pace, 10sec rest between each.
=> 3x100yd using a symmetric (center-mount) snorkel if you have one, AND some of De Soto’s Extreme Sleeves if you have them. Why? The point? Remember when, in the 1-arm pulls, I stressed the off arm, the one out in front of you? And that this arm needs remain near the surface during the extend phase? If it all works as it should, the De Soto Extreme Sleeves (or other similar product made by any company) should help your arms remain near the surface. When you take the sleeves off, make sure your arms stay near the surface. You're going to need to work a bit to make that happen.

If you don’t have all this paraphernalia filling up your swim bag fine, then you’re fine simply doing what we did in the first workout: 6x100yd alternating 1-arm pull and freestyle.

=> 5 x 200yd: Just like the 150s, think about technique.
