The advantages of a quality strength training program for a swimmer has been well documented as more and more of the best swimmers in the world lift weights to improve. It is a key element in the overall training program to help improve times and reach personal bests more consistently! In addition to the increases of muscular endurance, strength and power that weight training will develop, the Swimming Programs also provide injury prevention by involving special exercises for the shoulders and lower back.

Throughout the length of the Swimming Program, the manipulation of the sets and repetitions for each exercise will be based on periodization concepts that involve changing the intensity and the volume of the workouts. This variation provides a more consistent "programmed response" to exercise which will help to avoid those depressing plateau's in progress.

The starting point of the program is based on an initial fitness level. With feedback, the actual progression of the program will follow the body's unique adaptation process to exercise. Fine tune the program to include all the exercises that feel the best!
