LAND TRAINING & NUTRITION

Fitness Equipment On a Wood Floor

Land training is an extremely important part of training: swimming doesn’t  build enough muscles and strength because it is non-weight bearing. Our land training coach Graham Thomas plan sessions which are ‘swimming specific’: work which complements swimming.

 

What do you do in land training:

  • Circuit training and core stability work

  • Flexibility and pre-competition warm-up exercises

  • Plyometrics (jumping & bounding, skipping & hopping): this will help with starts and turns in the pool

  • Light ‘free weights’ for strength. 

  • DynaBand & Bungee work. Medicine balls

  • Relaxation

Appropriate attire:

  • Wear clothes that give a full range of motion

  • T-shirts, track suit bottoms, shorts or leggins

  • Sensible trainers (NOT fashion trainers) should be worn

  • Also, wear appropriate colours: consider that light colours reflect heat and dark colours absorb heat.

  • Water bottle/s
