Talk One: Strength Training for Swimming (view recording - coming back soon!)

Wednesday, March 18 at 7pm or Sunday, March 22 at 10am

I'll teach/lead you in a simple workout you can do almost everyday to help maintain your swim muscles and probably even gain strength. If you don't already own a light resistance band, here's an example of the one piece of equipment you can benefit from having at home, a resista-band. It's better to go too light than two stiff. The green will be good for most while the red is suitable for our stronger swimmers.


Talk Two: Increasing Mobility for Swimming (view recording)

Wednesday, March 25 at 7pm

This is more important to most of our swimmers than strength but I know you're all more hungry to hear about strength so we'll start there. Shoulder and ankle mobility are a huge limiter for swimmers. Increase them and you will become a better swimmer.
