Avoid your favorite drills. Those are the ones that make you feel good, not the ones you need most. Use your pool time to discover at least one new thing about yourself as a swimmer. “Play with hand pitch, head position and kicking. Or focus on balance, relaxation and sculling. See how each change feels and whether it makes you more efficient,” Bernardes says. “Make up some drills, or combine two of your favorites. When you experiment, you learn more about your relationship to the water.”
