5 ways to become a better swimmer- that don't involve swimming!

1) CORE STRENGTH

Stronger core (abs, back, hips, glutes) will allow you to maintain better body position, improve posture and balance while you swim. This will improve your overall swimming performance.

2) WEIGHT TRAINING

Hit the weights! Resistance training is an effective way to gain strength that will support your swimming. Movements like lunges, squats, and pull-ups are a fantastic way to engage the entire body. Incorporating dryland training can have a dramatic impact on performance and reduce your risk of injury.

3) FLEXIBILITY AND MOBILITY

Hit the weights! Resistance training is an effective way to gain strength that will support your swimming. Movements like lunges, squats, and pull-ups are a fantastic way to engage the entire body. Incorporating dryland training can have a dramatic impact on performance and reduce your risk of injury.

4) NUTRITION

Improved nutrition is a crucial step you can take to improve your swim performance. Remember, healthful eating does not mean eating perfectly. It’s about making more nutritious choices. Swimming 2000 plus yards a day allows you to eat pretty much what you want but moderation is important. Being aware of the food you eat can be as impactful to your swim performance as the work you do in the pool.

5) REST AND RECOVERY

A day of not working out or swimming can be the best workout day of your week! The work you put into your training routine is only as good as your recovery; if you body doesn’t have time to rest, then it doesn’t have time to repair. This can lead to injury, fatigue, and a decrease in performance. Overtraining is a common cause of injury for swimmers, so make sure you vary the way you train and take the rest you need to be at your best!
