On today's blog, I've posted the latest video in this series, which uses the JC All-Purpose Exercise Band from Perform Better. At the bottom of this post, I've included a video file that gives step-by-step instructions on how to find this band at the website (or just click here for the video file) The band used in the video is “Orange” medium resistance.
Perform each exercise in the video at a high rep range of 30-50 reps (I perform 50 in the video), and do the circuit two to three times through with minimal rest.
1) Swim forward chest press
2) Swim back reverse pull
3) Overhead extension
4) Kneeling swim back reverse pull
5) Oblique chop high-to-low
Enjoy your workout!
P.S. Not sure if anyone has been to my multi-sport strength training channel at https://www.youtube.com/thestrongtriathlete, but on that site I post workout videos for triathletes, and anyone else who wants to get in fantastic shape with highly effective 20-40 minute workouts. Check it out.

I really love the videos on the strength training routines. I’ve been sending the athletes I work with to your site to watch the routines as well as listen to your informative explanation about the technique. Thanks for sharing!
I like the youtube video of the swim workout using bands. How do you avoid shoulder or rotator injury?
