Swimmers often face the problem of trying to finish a 200m butterfly without living a near-death experience. These 3 drills will help you develop and increase your cardiovascular and respiratory endurance, improve your hydrodynamic position and overcome your mental limits … and maybe one day, after more and more reps, you may also swim a 3000 m butterfly!
Start with 1 butterfly movement and finish the length swimming freestyle. Continue adding 1 butterfly movement to every length until you swim a whole length of butterfly.
Drill 1: +1!
Add 1 butterfly movement every 25m
Drill 2: -1!
swim 25m butterfly and then take 1 butterfly movement out every 25m
Drill 3: Combination!
Add 1 butterfly movement every 25m until you swim a whole length of butterfly, then continue taking 1 butterfly movement out every 25 m.
2 levels : – “Easy” level: swim in a 25 m swimming pool
“Advanced” level: swim in a 50 m swimming pool
And remember, if one day
You swim a 200m butterfly, you’ll be a real swimmer
You swim a 400m butterfly, you’ll be a “lost” swimmer
You swim a 800m butterfly, you’ll be a warrior
You swim a 1500m butterfly, you’ll be a hero
You swim a 3000m butterfly, you’ll be a god
You swim a 5000m butterfly, you’ll be a crazy swimmer!
