Build Your Swimmers’ Strength and Power!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Tuesday, April 1, 2014

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.

Develop Speed and Agility in Your Lacrosse Players!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Tuesday, February 11, 2014

Rob Rose of True Athlete Performance shares the tools you need to better evaluate your players’ performance with tests that isolate specific abilities. This drill is a way to measure the agility and speed of players. It can be used especially with offensive players to develop their ability to move quickly and change direction in order to create space or dodge a defender.

Roundabout Drill

How it Works: This drill utilizes four cones; two for the start, one five yards up and five yards over, and a fourth, five yards over and five yards back, so that you end with a triangle shape. The athlete begins at the two cones. The timing begins upon the athletes’ first forward movement. They sprint to and around the middle cone, sprint to and around the far cone, from an inside-out direction. They sprint back around the top-middle cone and then finish by running back between the two starting line cones.

Drill Tips: For testing an athlete’s time, only one set up would be needed. But for training purposes, you could run the drill with several setups at the same time so that your entire team could have multiple reps in a short amount of time.
