Hybrid workouts provide a blend of drills & conditioning and provide a good way to transition from a long but slow stroke technique to higher turnovers.
The point is to use the kick & pull set to sharpen up technique prior to a hard interval. The continuous nature of the sets provides for a challenging workout.
TIME: 45-60 minutes
FOCUS: Isolating the individual parts of your stroke via kick & pull then putting it all together for a hard effort.
