Tennessee Tumblers
This is a different take on the hypoxic breathing sets. Swim 20 yards toward the opposite wall, and when you reach the flags, dive underwater and kick/pull to the wall. Remain underwater as you touch the wall, turn around, and push off. The goal is to make it past the flags before breaking the surface and starting to swim.

Example set: 8×50 Tennessee Tumblers with 10 sec rest
