Is it possible for me to drop my 50m freestyle sprint time from 45s to 30s in one month?
Whether it is possible or not, can someone suggest to me some good workouts for 50 free? Thank you.

is it possible?
Maybe but probably not. It depends.
tell us about you. How are you training now?

Do you have technique issues you can correct?
shoot a video of you sprinting and post it to youtube and a link here



here's a link to a ton of sprint work outs
just click forward and you can follow my sprint training in 2008

That's a pretty aggressive goal to accomplish in just a month. Some more information would be helpful, like how old are you?, how long have you be swimming?, what does your stroke look like now? I guess it's possible that you could be a diamond-in-the-rough prodigy who just needs some tweaks to your stroke, but probably not....

FWIW:
I'm 63 and started swimming again full time again in June 2015 after a 40 year layoff. I went from the mid 40's to mid 30's in about six months, but it took a lot of work, swimming 10K-15K per week, and some excellent coaching to get there.

I've also found that once you eliminate the low-hanging fruit (in my case some obvious fundamental flaws in my stroke) that it gets harder and harder to improve. Not much margin of error in swimming a 50.

Something tells me the OP is trolling.

Maybe some secret sauce would do the trick?
