The aim of creating this was to put together a basic plan that could assist someone wanting to improve their swimming that didn’t have access to a gym to complete this. These sessions could be lengthened by completing more sets or reps but a guideline is provided on the video.
The goal for swimmers that do this is to get stronger, more fatigue resistant and explosive through the catch and kick exercises and most importantly decreasing the risk of injury.
I’d recommend completing this 2-4 times per week and after a few sessions you should quickly see the improvements with the number of reps you can complete or the duration you can do.
As you apply this back to your swimming really try and think about anchoring your core so you can transfer the power in your stroke through the pull/push bio mechanics in your arm stroke.
By no means is the form in the videos perfect but hopefully it gives you an idea of what you need to complete.
