PHOENIX, Arizona, April 2. WANT fast, explosive starts? Dryland work is key to developing strength and speed in the water, especially when races come down to tenths and hundredths of a second.
In the above video, JR Rosania of JR Health Plex has a client demonstrate an explosive TRX suspension cable based exercise. Doing repetitions of this exercise, in addition to your normal strength and dryland routine, will improve a swimmer's explosiveness off the blocks.
