Running is not a good way to develop aerobic capacity in swimmers; there are better options that won't sacrifice their health. Transcript: "I don't think so, man. There are so many other better ways of developing aerobic capacity in swimmers. Just get rid of anything that has the impact of running because you cannot sacrifice your swimmers' heaps, niece, backs just for the sake of aerobic conditioning. I mean, you have better options."
Running is not a good way to develop aerobic capacity in swimmers; there are better options that won't sacrifice their health.
I do shorter distances aerobically with short intervals and higher intensity, rather than the classic 10, 20, 30, 40 hundredths on interval approach. This helps keep me connected to my sprinting stroke.
To learn how to sprint using a straight arm freestyle, use freestyle strokes and dolphin kicks to get a feel for your stroke. Pay attention to what you do outside the water as much as what you do inside of it.
Me and Brett used to do a workout that involved sprinting from a stationary position for several 35s with no push, dive or anything else. We would try to go as far as we could and push our max speed and effort.
To develop front end speed for the 50 and 100, focus on Sudha steps on the block and racing repeatedly, making sure to include plenty of rest in between.
Being a great kicker can help, but what counts the most is how you connect your kick and swim stroke for an efficient race.
