500 warmup (with fins and snorkel) of various

10 x 25 flutter kick on 1:00, fast to easy each

5 x 15 seconds vertical kick on 1:00, each as:
  • 1 DK + 6 FK's + 2 DK's + 6 FK's + 3 DK's + 6 FK's + 4 DK's + 6FK's + 5 DK's + 6 FK's
  • 2 were done with streamlined arms


300 of drills and kicking with fins and without fins

Vertical kicking has really had an impact on my kicking ability. Transitioning from dolphin to flutter that way (trying to keep head above) might minimize any dead propulsive kick spots at UW - B/O parts

    What do you mean by 5x15 seconds on 1:00? Or did you mean 1:15?

    How often do you do vertical kick drills?

    I did 0:15 of VK, rested 0:45, and repeated 5 times.

    Have been doing them almost every w/o. I decided to give vertical kicking a try because the super fast masters sprinters do them like waterrat, and sunruh. And the fact Rich and Chris recently mentioned them in a thread just encouraged me to add them to almost every w/o. Moreover, just in the several recent months I started doing the drill, I have noticed my kick and swimming has improved in this time. Have not tested this training at a meet yet.
