My swimming program includes six (6) parts. Now on, I want to share these with you guys! If you follow the program as strictly as I do, you will get and SEE results! I swim twice a week, on Tuesday and on Thursday, so every part has two different workouts. Here we go!
SWIMMING PART 1, 4 WEEKS
Workout 1, Tuesday:
warm up: 200m easy swimming.
2x: 4x25m kicking with board, rest 15s between sets
2x50m backstroke, rest 15s.
100m easy swimming.
4x50m, every 50m faster!
100m kick easy.
150m cool down.
Last week challenge: 300m swimming briskly in a row.
/1150m (without the challenge)
Workout 2, Thursday:
warm up: 25m, 50m, 75m, 100m, 75m, 50m, 25m. Rest 15s
20x25m swim, every other easy/fast
6x25m cool down.
I swim backstroke, but obviously you swim whatever suits you the best! I suck at freestyle, but every time I try it, I started with 25m on the first week, and now I'm already able to do 4x50m in freestyle! And when I said I suck, last summer I was able to do 5m freestyle and I felt like drowning. But don't tell that to anyone, it's embarrassing.
You don't have to have any kind of a background with swimming, I went to swim classes when I was a kid, that's my background! My mommy says I would have been a good swimmer though... I hate running, so I thought that swimming would do it, and I love it! It's amazing workout and I recommend it to everyone! I've been swimming for 4 months now and I can see myself getting better at it every time.
NOTE: you need a real swimsuit, goggles, cap if you have a long hair and a nose clip makes swimming much more comfortable when the chlorine water is not up in your nose all the time!
I hope some of you would try this out, I'll be posting part 2 in a few weeks. Comment below and tell how did it feel!
Have a wonderful week,
25m= 82ft ¼ inch, so one lap!
