Larry Stoegbauer is the strength coach for swimming at New Trier High School in Winnetka, Illinois and played an important role in the team’s 2007 National Championship. Here he shows you a drill that is for overspeed training and consists of the swimmer attached to a belt and tether, which is held by the coach. Utilize this drill for all strokes.
The “Potato Chip Bag” Drill
The swimmer swims against the tether which the coach releases after 4-5 seconds and the swimmer sprints to the other end of the pool.
