Swim Sets - why so kick heavy


#1

Why are the swim sets so kick heavy, and the kicking is at the end of the sets?

I haven’t seen tri swim set up like this before.

I’m doing Olympic base.

I don’t think they’re super kick heavy, it’s only about 200m worth of kicking/workout. I like getting to the kick sets because it means I’m nearly done :smiley:

Cheers. Maybe just my perception from limited experience. The kicking kills me.


#4

I often use zoomers for them. I’m guessing they’re meant to be challenging since the recovery weeks drop the kick sets.


#5

They don’t allow zoomers at my pool, otherwise I would be all over these kick drills!
