Stop getting bored during swimming with this deck of cards
The mere mention of swimming to a triathlete can cause ripples down their spine. Swim training can be notoriously boring and repetitive. That's why sales of bone conduction headphones have exploded. But, Anja from Drill Deck has come up with a much cheaper solution - Tri Drill Deck.
The first set of games for swim training!
Included in the pack are over 30 proven freestyle drills to provide you with an endless variety of new swim workouts.
Start with the dice:
If Drill comes up on the dice simply close your eyes and pick from the deck of cards (follow the drill). If Lap comes up simply do laps!
Here are a few example drills:
If you are a Swim Coach and need more ammunition, then this is an exciting little addition to your repertoire.
Anja is a triathlete. Like many triathletes, I struggle with the swim leg. So much so, that training felt like a chore on my swim days. I have one general rule in life: If it isn't fun, it isn't worth doing.
As you can tell, I had a problem. While I loved the variety and multi-disciplinary approach of triathlon, the swim was dragging me down.
I knew I could be a better swimmer by working on my form and spending more time in the pool altogether. But I get bored quickly. That's part of why I'm a triathlete! I like variety! Staring at a solid black line and trying to remember vague descriptions of swim drills just wasn't cutting it anymore.
So now I had two problems:
1. I needed motivation to get into the pool more often.
2. I needed to work on my form, but didn't have the drills to do it.
That's when I had the idea for Drill Deck. It's a simple but powerful idea that puts over 30 swim drills in your pocket and shakes up your routine by adding an element of chance.
I love that now an hour in the pool is a roulette of possibilities. I work on parts of my form that I would never have the discipline to seek out drills for and I have fun doing it. Every workout is different and has great variety.
My first prototype was laughingly crude, involving flash cards and packing tape. Since then, I've refined the product, and the drills, to include the best tools available. The whole product is water friendly. The cards are 100% plastic and the dice are custom fit to our purpose. Even the storage bag is a breathable nylon that dries quickly.
My simple idea has now morphed into a team of folks helping me create even more awesome products. But for now, I'm proud to bring you the swimming Drill Deck.
