Dryside Training by Commit Swimming: Fit and Fast for Summer


As summer approaches and the temperatures rise, there’s nothing better than being fit and fast.

It’s the perfect time to burn off those last few unwanted pounds and increase your fitness level.  It’s also a great time to step up your swim training for swim meets that will return soon!

Along with the exercises demonstrated below, clean up your diet by eating healthier foods and less high-fat, high-calorie foods.  Also, step up your training at home with hand weights, exercise bands, and other equipment.

These exercises will increase your fitness and maybe even help you swim faster.  And they can be performed at home!

Perform each exercise up to three times a week.  Pick a resistance that enables you to do 12 to 15 repetitions for three sets.  As always, discontinue the exercises a week before a competition.

So, it’s time to get FIT…and swim FAST this summer!
