Daily Swim Workout #25: Speed and Strength

Today’s set works on top end speed and overall strength. For the portion of the set that’s paddles only – do not use a pull buoy. We want to continue to work on your ability to hold your legs up and engage your lower abs. For added difficulty you can use an elastic band to wrap around your legs and eliminate your kick to REALLY engage your lower abs.
