Butterfly & Breaststroke 2

Objective: Swim 500 yards of butterfly or breaststroke. You are thinking, "500 FLY! ARE YOU KIDDING?" No. If you have an efficient stroke, and can stay focused on your technique, you can swim the short axis strokes (butterfly or breaststroke) indefinitely.

Audience: This program is for "graduates" of the Breakwater Butterfly & Breaststroke 1 program, or after an evaluation of your short axis strokes by Coach Bill.

This program is not for competitive swimmers who want to shave a fraction of a second from their sprint time.

Training Method: After reviewing the elements of efficient short axis strokes, this program focuses on beginning each length with a perfect turn and breakout, and then maintaining good form all the way to the next wall.

A handout for each session is available online. The handout describes all drills and exercises performed, and contains practice tips for mastering the drills.
