Are there any specific workouts to improve swimming?
If your goal is to maximize your swimming potential, then the type of Excersise youd really benefit from doing are those that build your endurance and workout multiple parts of your body. Try to get excersises that give you a full range of motion. -Cardio type would be good as long as you wear ankle/wrist weights as you move. As u know, Swimming requires both strength and emdurance, so taking endurance excersises and making them a little harder by adding weights (3-10lb range) can help you on both fronts. I find that Active.com and mens/womens health also hav3 some pretty good advice for swimmers looking to step up their game. I hope this helps and good luck with your endeavors!
Thank you so much. I'd really appreciate that. Yes I do have access to the gym but I'm weary of using it. If its essential and helps improve swimming, I'll do it. I must clarify that I'm just a beginner as a swimmer. Just abt a week old - I'm able to float and do breast stroke without breathing. I'm abt to learn breathing techniques. Thank you once again.
Thanks for the tips. Found all the three websites with a wealth of knowledge stored therein. I am starting with the beginners drills/workouts and I must say it is extremely helpful. Thank you so much for your help and showing the direction.
well. i'm a swimmer so i suggest that you would swim for 5 times a week and i day for land training. your choice if gym or jogging or whatever. your choice. that helped me improve. :)
