"Hypoxic/underwater sets are ______" (fill in the blank)

PM only SCY

300 swim
100 kick w/ board 50 FR/50 BR
300 pull w/ buoy + snorkel
100 kick w/ board 25 BR/50 FR/25 BR
300 R.I.M.O. 50 drill/25 sw
100 kick w/ board 25 FR/50 BR/25 FR

w/ fins:
400 @ 6:00 kick every 4th 25 under H2O
3x100 @ 1:25 swim D1-3 (1:04, :58, :52)
300 @ 4:30 kick every 3rd 25 under H2O
4x100 @ 1:20 swim D1-4 (1:05, 1:01, :57, :53)
200 @ 3:00 kick every 2nd 25 under H2O
5x100 @ 1:15 swim D1-5 (1:06, 1:02, :59, :57, :53)

100 EZ

Total: 3400

So on the 400/300/200 I flipped at both ends for each 25 under H2O. I felt like I was about to pass out by the end of each distance. On the 100s, I did 4/6/2 turns off every wall (4 FL kicks, 6 FR kicks, and 2 strokes before taking first breath).

    OMG you are going to DIE! You should always surface at the flags.. and please sign this waiver before you swim because we can't be responsible if you do something stupid like actually push yourself.

    O.0 I just read that thread. I will say that I RARELY do an underwater set with no supervision. For instance, in the winter, the SCY pool here has a bubble over it and is "swim at your own risk". During the spring/summer, the LCM pool is also "swim at your own risk". I wouldn't attempt any underwater stuff (the above set, Rouse 100s, etc.)if there was no coach or lifeguard or SOMEONE on the deck whose job it was to (at least occasionally) watch me.

    All that being said, I try to push myself on hypoxic/underwater work by speeding up intervals but limiting underwater time. Gone are the days of me doing the old 25^3 (an old underwater hockey training set, 25x25 @ :25 w/ fins under H2O all fast).
