    I think when you don't swim out and just stand around it forces you to use different energy systems sooner. In layman's terms, the the absolutely dogsh*t feeling I have on my 5th rep of 6x100 @ 5:00 starts at like #2 or 3 if I am skipping some sort of recovery in between. Which I guess teaches me to push through the pain sooner? But usually when I do dive sets, or lactate sets, I want to be at the top of my game as much as I can be every time I step up on the blocks.

    I have another set that is similar that I KNOW has a "no warm down" component. May try it out in a week or two. I will post the results here, unless I die attempting it!

    Got it. thanks for the explanation. Appreciate the blog updates as they provide me with new ideas when I'm forced to swim solo.

    Dan,

    I once read about a set he did. 20x150 @ 2:00 no kick outs. To work, I am assuming, on turnover and emphasizing strokes over kicking off the walls. The set is here:

    https://swimswam.com/upping-the-inza...etting-faster/

    Anyways, my "occasional" training partner Trip Strauss has really bad walls (I know Trip will read this and he knows I am being truthful but also don't mean anything by it!). I have really good walls (or I like to think they are pretty good), and this puts Trip at a decided disadvantage any time we race. So every so often I will promise to race him "Zane Grothe" style, taken from the set linked above, to try and level the playing field (which it actually does...sometimes).
