1,000 Near-Perfect Freestyle
Your mission this week is to swim a total of 1,000 yards or meters of near-perfect freestyle technique (every practice) for the next six days. It can include the freestyle performed in your daily warm-up, main sets, or warm-down. And you don’t have to do all of the yardage in a row. Instead, pick your spots throughout the practice.
As a PEAK PVC swimmer, challenge yourself to apply as many PEAK techniques as possible. These include:
- A fixed, low, non-breathing head position (Nose Number 0 or Nose Number 1).
- Shoulder-width entry arms.
- Fully extended entry arms.
- An early, high-elbow catch (elbow tip should almost break the surface).
- Fully extended finishing arms (at thighs).
- A full-fast finish (finish each pull with speed).
- Symmetrical arm recovery (high elbow, low elbow, or straight arm).
- Bilateral Breathing.
- Minimal Breathing (small breath close to the surface).
- Equal side-to-side rotation.
- A long-legged freestyle kick, starting from the hips (not knees).
- Motorboat Kick (keep the feet in the water).
