[Effortless Swimming] Hell Week + Butterfly Tips

Hell Week

Every now and then it's good push beyond your comfort zone.

I'm currently running my Master's swim squad through a Hell Week. We do it once or twice a season to improve our fitness.

I remember going away on a training camp in 2006. I was unfit, I was weak and the entire time I was in pain from the sessions. But after only 7 days of intense training, I'd caught up 3-4 weeks of fitness had only been doing regular training.

See what session I put the squad through on Monday in this week's video.
