Land Training

There are a number of exercises that can be carried out by the swimmers at home.
 
Land exercises that help your swimming break into four different types:
  • Stretching helps keep your muscles lengthened to avoid injury, especially as your flexibility enables stronger propulsion when swimming.
  • Cardiovascular exercise aids your overall endurance.
  • Strengthening your core helps with your body roll, stroke technique and also helps avoid injury.
  • Weight training, particularly of the triceps, quadriceps, hamstrings and latissimus dorsi, help strengthen the muscles that power you through the water.
 
By incorporating dry-land exercises into your routine, you can improve your swim skills and speed. In addition, they help you avoid injury as you can more carefully isolate particular muscle groups and strengthen weaker muscles.
 
By opening the links below, you will find examples of exercises that swimmers should be carrying out on a regular basis.
