Underwater Work & Breath Control

Set of the Week is courtesy of FINIS, a SwimSwam partner.

This week’s set of the week comes from Kat Wickham, former swimmer at the University of Utah (SKO Utes).

This set is a hypoxic set. That means you’ll be doing some underwaters and breath control. We don’t recommend this set for anyone that hasn’t done breath control before and we also recommend taking breaks when needed.

400 warmup

4 x 25 (1. 1/2 underwater, 1/2 swim, 2. 1/2 swim, 1/2 underwater, 3. all swim, 4. all underwater)

5 x 200 pull w/snorkel or breath every 5, Rest 10
10 x 50 Odds: underwater kick, ez swim. Evens: ez swim, underwater kick

*Wear Long Floating Fins if you are new to underwaters. More advanced swimmers can wear Zoomers Gold Fins or none. Wear agility paddles and a pull buoy for the pulling portion.
