Swimming Inspired Workout 1

This workout focuses on strength, with the inclusion of plyometrics and total body exercises, such as lunges with overhead press, push-ups with a single leg raise and spider walks. These full body integrated movements translate well to swimming, as the strokes performed in the sport also involve the recruitment of all major muscles.

For a general cardiovascular warm-up, perform 5-10 minutes of a low-to-moderate intensity aerobic exercise such as walking, riding a stationary cycle or using an elliptical trainer.
