Feel the Water...

posted August 10, 2008 @ 3:56 PM  |  Featured Workouts category

Sculling's great, especially when you haven't been in the water for a while. It's also good when you're looking for that "fat" water and you're optimizing traction regardless of the particular stroke you're swimming. It's not the motion of the scull that counts as much as it's that feeling you get when the water's heavy and you're practically doing pushups down the lane. Just make sure you're moving those arms side to side while adjusting your palm position for downward pressure to hold your head completely out of the water. Don't replicate breaststroke pull - that ain't sculling!

Later on in this program, fist drill makes you feel inefficient as if you're swimming with stubs, but what better way to look for fat water than using your forearms. Use the whole arm for propulsion, not just your hands. Think below the elbow on your catch, then when you're back to the swim portion of the set, you're cupped palms will make your stroke feel uber long, and hopefully uber long.

Check it out and let me know if you've modified it, loved it, or hated it:
