Hard Work Versus Soft Work
Every swimmer knows what hard work means, but what about “soft work?” It’s a term I’ve coined, and it’s the opposite of hard work.

The secret to longevity and success in swimming is to add soft work activities to your daily hard work routines, including stretching.
This week’s mission is to spend no less than seven minutes on each of the stretches found in this video.
