    POOL MATH

    • 25 yards or 25 meters = 1 length of the pool

    • 50 yards or 50 meters = 2 lengths or one full out and back lap

      (*)The following workouts are in the sweet spot! They are average for duration and sets. Which means, newbies may slice off a few laps, the pool regulars may want to add on a few laps.
