Swim Tips from Sabrina

February 11, 2019

 

My good friend and fellow coach, Sabrina Cook, offered these swim tips for the Tri Skills Camp.

 

This is the swim fin I recommend. The short fins that some athletes had are really designed for advanced swimmers. These longer fins will correct what I call the “bicycle kick” that my group discussed. Speedo Rubber Swim Training Fins

Along with the fins, here are links to the drills

Note that this article mentions getting a SWOF score from your watch. You can easily get this info on your own. However the interpretation of the data remains the same. If you don’t have a watch, take your SWOF score at a minimum of each week, and up to twice per swim session (beginning and end). Record this data in your training log.
