      I’m wondering – does anybody want to share what they do for weights and dryland?

      My coach is pretty old school and we do a standard 3 sets of 12 of the popular weight machines (bench, military, curl, tricep, etc.). On top of that, we do stuff like lunges, push ups, crunches and things like that.

      Has anybody started doing things that are geared primarily toward swimming?

      I have listed our strength program for the season week-by-week up to taper. I have not included taper as we set it up for each individual. I am not sure how this will look when it is posted and the tables will not hold up, so if you would like a copy just PM me. EDIT- THIS REALLY DIDN”T WORK, MY APOLOGY- without being able to see the weekly percentages it is hard to make heads or tails of the program

      The only other missing components are what the MD group does on T/Th- this also varies during the season, but an example is listed at the very end. The first month is also absent as it is very individualized given that people come in at different levels of fitness and familiarity with strength training. I have also not included what some of our guys do whose workouts do not conform to the norm of the group, but are more individualized for the entire season.

      Now that is quite the post!

      Looks like a good, solid program and quite similar to what I did when I swam at Gustavus. Hopefully it will treat the boys well and send a bunch of them to NCAAs.

    • #42981

      I’m curious what other people’s experiences with the vasa have been. I didn’t really like it or thought that it did much good while I was swimming. Thoughts? Opinions?

      They made it a lot cheaper and easier by just using stretch chords i think. Instead of sliding you just end up staying stationary.

      Yeah I always thought the Vasa was highly overrated. We just used chords for that kinda stuff. But when I swam in college it was all about how much power and speed we could develop. Coach Ryan was a master at it. Anyone who lives in the Naperville area, come on by on jan 19, because he is finally being inducted into the North Central Hall of Fame.

      VASA!??? OVERRATED? I’m furious

      But seriously, one thing you can do with the VASA that is pretty cool is set it up against a wall and wedge something between the vasa and a block or whatever you have in front of it. Then have a swimmer lie with their back flat on the bench. Now they can simulate plyometric push offs with resistance on the bench.

      VASA’s really excelled at ripping the hair from your head — even if you had short hair.
      I’ve also seen wet swimmers do their pull on a VASA, slip off the bench, and crash to the deck while still holding the pullies — then if they let go, the bench would crash on their head.

      My most vivid memory in college of drylands was of my coach, who included them in our inane preseason “conditioning test”, which included among other things 6 consecutive minutes of fly on the vasa. One year we also ran suicides. I think it was because our perimeter defense was so bad and we were getting beat in transition.

      Defense wins championships.

    • #42988

      I’ve said this on the MIAC forum before, but one year our coach had us all wrestle each other and hit a punching bag because we were not intense enough.

      I’m still recovering from the cauliflower ear.

    • #42989

      One of the more memorable “games” that we played for dryland was using a medicine ball (usually only like a 5lbs one) for basketball and speedball.

      No dodgeball?

      Wussies.

    • #42991

      No because we only played dogdeball with American Dodgeball Association of America approved balls.

      Line up the mats you do stretching on in the pool in a straigt line (assuming they float) and see who can run out on them the fartherest. I always referred to this as training to be Jesus. And who amongst us can beat Jesus in a 50 free (answer, noone).
