We have focused a lot on the catch over the last few weeks and I have seen some good improvements from many of you, especially in increased patience with the catch and avoiding wasted effort pushing down on the water.  I now want to focus on the transition to the power phase using rotation from your core – building on your patient catch.  The following video from Chloe Sutton is a good summary of what to think about and some drills we will be doing this week.

I’d like you to particularly focus on timing.  We will be doing the hip connector drill to help you focus on this.  We will also be doing quite a lot of work on the legs so really think about timing your kick to help with the rotation.  After the drills we will do an aerobic pyramid with some sprints to finish.

See you Saturday!
