We are well into our season and as everyone probably have noticed I started this season a bit "harder" than last season...I know a lot of you have been swimming and training during the summer, which makes it so much more fun for me to challenge you..However I do know some of you have not been swimming in a group like this before or have been out of the water from a time frame 20 years to a year.. I do keep that in mind, when I coach and see you standing at the edge trying to catch your breath..It is great to see the effort that everyone are putting into their swim training..
After seeing people trying really hard doing the new drill "the catch-phase", "sending the elbow over the hand and sending the water down to the feet" .. I thought, I should once again send this video out of Michael Phelps. Watch careful the first angle from underneath..the pull is exceptional "strong and long", with the elbow being "send over the hand" ..Some of you having done the drill responded back saying that you "finally" feel the water..Great...
