Do you swim a lot on your own?

Are you a beginner swimmer or triathlete trying to grasp the sport?

Do you coach swimming and need some inspiration?

There comes a time when the imagination or needed knowledge does not work in your favor and you cannot come up with good swim practice.

You keep repeating the same swim sets over and over or you just do not know where to start.

Or you just want to break out of the usual and try something else.

You never know what swim sets might work for you until you give them a try.

I found a few pages and mobile apps where you can get help in finding a good swim workout for yourself or for your team.

If you are a coach, I am sure your swim team sometimes appreciates a change from your routine, so keep them interested in this wonderful sport and vary your training.

Also, let them have fun once in a while. :) Check here for great sprint breaststroke workout or lung capacity drills.

Swim practices are fun
Keep your workouts interesting and smile
