2. 6/3/6 or the “Triple Switch Drill” can be practiced with fins to more easily maintain forward movement. Push off the wall and take three strokes. After the third stroke, pause with one arm extended forward and the other against your side. Hold this elongated body position as you kick six times. Resume stroking for three strokes and pause with the other arm extended forward. Pause for another six kicks and continue this pattern across the pool.

Practice with this set: 4x(50 of 6/3/6 drill, 50 swim with perfect technique, 15 sec rest)
