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.

Build Your Swimmers’ Strength and Power!

Larry Stoegbauer, the strength coach for swimmers at New Trier High School in Winnetka, Illinois, has put together a drill that allows the coach and the swimmer to measure the progress and improvement in building strength and power for swimming.

The Weight Strap Drill

The swimmer places a belt around his or her waist connected to a strap approximately the length of the pool with a bar bell weight of between 10 to 95 lbs. attached. The weight is placed in the deep end of the pool and the strap is curled around a backstroke start handle and out to the swimmer. The swimmer then sprints to the other end of the pool towing the weight across the pool bottom to the starting block. As the swimmer gains strength, the weight is increased.
