Split Up into 2 Groups

Group 1

3 x SL + 3 FR + lay on side one arm in 11, face down and float with 10 kicks.

Goal is laying on the side. Avoid belly laying. Most swimmers will get confused with the arm raised forward and will put it in the air and look up. Goal is looking down, nose in armpit. “Smell your sticky armpits.”

Group 2

Head Lead Balance with Rotation

Body in soldier position, kick with face up.

Rotate hips and shoulders from parallel to surface to perpendicular to surface. Rotate through both sides.
