Go outside your comfort zone with these four challenging (but fun!) drills that will help you become a more relaxed and efficient swimmer. 

Tombstone Kicking
Develop a strong kick by pushing a large surface through the water. Grasp the sides of a kickboard and hold it vertical with only the top inch of the board out of the water. Push off the wall and kick the length of the pool. Keep your body flat and your face in the water except to breathe.

Example set: 6×75 with 15 sec rest as (25 Tombstone/50 swim)
