Dry Side Exercise And Gym Work

Swimming is the best full-body exercise you can find, however, the best athletes add a variety of non-water based exercises to their programme. Improve your swimming with dry-side exercise.

Improving your swimming is not just about time in the pool. It is also about exercise out of the pool.For competitive swimmers, exercise out of the water compliments the training undertaken in the pool.

Some dry-side  training directly impacts performance. For example, strength in arms is improved to increase power during the underwater pulling action.

Other exercise contributes indirectly. For example, core strength is built to create body alignment and a perfect streamline.

Much of the exercise is used in injury prevention through the development of flexibility and mobility of the muscles.
