Holiday Bonus Set

Kiefer will help you stay "swim fit" during the holiday season! Simply add this bonus set to either the shorter or longer workout below.

Bonus Set:
8 x 25 free, hard. Only take :03 rest after each 25 (basically touch and go), but swim these as if you're getting 1:00 rest...super hard! Should feel exhausting!
