Workouts and Tips: Pairing Resistance and Tempo Training

Tempo Trainer ProWhen I think about the Tempo Trainer Pro, I think about what I call the “Holy Grail of Swim Coaching”, which in my opinion is knowing how many strokes you’re taking and how fast you’re taking them.

That said, when coaches work on stroke counts they inevitably run into to the problem of needing to increase power.

You'll find you can't do any substantial kicking/swimming like this anyway.

Enhance Upper Body Strength And Technique With The New FINIS Iso Paddle

Iso paddles are strapless paddles designed to isolate specific muscle groups, develop proper hand position and heighten stroke awareness. Iso paddles are uniquely designed to create an imbalance in the catch phase of a stroke, which forces swimmers to apply more pressure on either side of the paddle in order to maintain a proper stroke. The variance encourages swimmers to pay increased attention to hand position in the water, keeping it level and consistent throughout the catch and pull of each stroke.

Use Short Training Fins To Build Endurance And Speed

During your swim training, swimming with a long fin could be reducing the full potential of your workout. The large surface area of long swim fins gives a great amount of forward propulsion, allowing the swimmer to move with little effort. Long fins are useful in many ways during training, but the long blade fin is not always the best option for creating muscular endurance. Short training fins like the FINIS Zoomers demand a faster kick rate and a higher intensity, resulting in a different, and more specific range of benefits for the swimmer.

Letter From a U.S Masters Swimmer - FINIS Edge Fins

FINIS EdgeI had a great workout today with the fins.  It has gotten to the point I don’t want to take them off.  I confirmed my subjective thoughts and instincts with one of my coaches who affirmed that what I felt occurring was in fact what he saw happening.  I am referring to one of the most significant aspects of the use of this fin which is that, without any intended effort, the legs are clearly automatically, 1 kicking from the hip, and 2 the ankles are extending with no intend to extend them. As a  result, a higher body ride is achieved. There is good energy generated by this fin, and yet it isn’t unduly stiff.
