Editors note: The use of a rubber band like a therapy band, typically the red resistance level is what Barb often gives her swimmers. These are used to force you to engage your core when your legs aren’t allowed to kick. It’s also an easy reminder that you are kicking when you are getting resistance from the band and your legs should be still.
