  1. My favorite swim session is when I turn up to the pool and it's closed so I go for a bike ride 🙂 jokes I actually find programmed sessions based on leaving times the most effective.

  2. A vid on dealing with open water anxiety and swimming at your own pace when surrounded by people at the start would be really helpful. Love the channel.

  3. what I always like to do is a 200m block(in a 25m pool!!), and then go slow for 10m, sprint 15m, go slow for 15m, sprint for 10m, and so on(in my pool it is done easylice because of the flags above the pool), that way you learn to sprint really fast, without being able to push of a wall

  4. Hi, with two swiming sessions per week, should I always do a … session + changing the type of the second one every week ?
    always do a … and a … session every week ? or equally rotate between dift types of sessions every week ? thx

  5. How about a dedicated video to drafting in a race? How to pick a person to draft, how to (or if to) get rid of someone on your hip, what changes you make to breathing or sighting when drafting.

  6. It may well be true that pros won't improve their swim much by focusing on their technique but that's because for them there may not be much room for improvement in this area. For your average age grouper however, focusing on technique probably offers the biggest opportunity for improvement. More broadly, don't train like a pro if you aren't one. Train in a way that is specific and appropriate for you and your level.

  7. How to determine your swim threshold speed? As training on heartrate in the water tends to pretty to impossible ;-). Just go by CSS?

  8. How many sessions would you recommend for a returning swimmer to sharpen up the techniques. Would you also mix in some back stroke etc if you're feeling tired as a active recovery to build endurance?

    Keep up the great content

  9. she would swim quite a bit faster with the proper catch, as a swimmer and collegiate water polo player, the catch is where most of my power comes from and pulling across ur body is bad news bears

  10. "not everyone has time for three or four swims per week"
    … I'm a beginner but my schools swim team has us practice 6 days out of 7 ??

    I'm so nervous I start my first practice tomorrow
