Shoulder Driven Freestyle – Optimal Tempo

In our previous videos the campers learned the fundamentals of a shoulder driven freestyle through a series of swim drills. They have all made remarkable progress and are comfortable with shoulder driven technique. Now head coach Gary Sr helps each swimmer find their optimal tempo for the 50 freestyle. Using a test set with the Finis Tempo Trainer each swimmer is challenged by increasing the tempo throughout the set. This set is a great way to find out where a swimmer is getting diminishing returns as the tempo increases. There is a fine line between spinning your wheels and holding water when it comes to the fastest race in swimming so be sure to find the 'sweet spot'!
