In this video, I show you the essential tools that will help you become stronger in the water – whether you're just getting started in swimming, you wan an alternative to a weight training workout, or you want to get faster for swim competition, triathlon, or open water swimming.
Some of the stronger swimming resources I mention in the video include:
Swim Parachute or a Drag Suit
The stronger swimmer workout that I do with these tools goes like this:
-200-500 meter warm-up
-200m paddles + pull buoy
-200m kickboard + fins
-8x25m sprints with drag suit or parachute
-Recover 10-30 seconds between sets. One circuit=1000m. Repeat 0, 1, 2 or 3x depending on desired distance.
