Gear that add variety to your swim workout
 

Here are some tools and gear you can add to your swim workout to help work on technique or add variety.  Which one do you want to try next?

 

These are just some of the tools or products we use in our swim training. Some, like pull buoys and the Tri Swim group of products I consider to be necessities and they get regular use.  Then, there are things like the Finis Tempo Trainer and their Duo Underwater Music player are pieces you can add to your kit to add interest or variety to your training.  Here are some examples.

Finis Tempo Trainer Workout

As triathletes or fitness swimmers, if you swim a lot by yourself, it is easy to fall into a pattern of doing the same workouts over and over or swimming at the same tempo or level of intensity all the time.  For something a little different, pick up a Tempo Trainier and mix up the tempos to test yourself at different stroke rates.  Try this set of descending 100's:  

- You will be swimming 100's on 20 to 30 seconds rest.  The rest will seem long in the first group of sets.  Start at a tempo of 1 (which is one second per stroke).  Swim at the stroke rate set out by the tempo trainer.  Increase the stroke rate by 0.2 every 100 meters.  The first 5 or so of these will be nice and slow and you will have lots of time to focus on perfect technique.  When you get to faster paces and can't hold the stroke rate anymore, try to hold it for at least 50 meters and then just finish the 100 with smooth swimming.  When that gets too hard, try to hold the stroke rate for 25 meters.  If you do this workout a few times, try to progress a little further each time.  This workout will give you some 100's where you focus on technique and some quality speed work all in one set. 

Music Workout

Use a SwiMP3 or H2OAudio and swim different songs with a different focus.  Speed up for an up-tempo song, focus on technique on a slower one.  Set a playlist or just put your playlist on shuffle and go with the flow.  If you really want an unexpected workout, try swapping your music player with a friend and follow their playlist.
