Build strength and power for swimmers and surfers alike in this LIVE class Reformer replay. Although this workout has been specifically designed for the power and recovery needed when swimming; as well as how we need to train additionally in order to make the swimmer stronger and more well rounded, everyone can enjoy this workout.
We have 2 main focuses: 1. Weight bearing and impact training to strengthen bones and lower body for greater power when in the water. This offsets the weightlessness of the water. Strength and flexibility is key in the feet, ankles, calves, quads and hip flexors when in the water, we’ll train and increase this out of the water. 2. Core strength combined with triceps, shoulders and upper back, while opening chest. We’ll specifically work the torsion and twist a swimmer needs to transfer power and propel forward in the water.
Intermediate – Advanced level class.
Plan to jump, work unilaterally, in planks, extension and more. You’ll work in every plane. There’s lots of variety to our chosen exercises and a reason behind each one chosen. Many you’ll already know, others might be new variations. Enjoy the variety and connect to the why we are doing each one and just how it will help the swimmer in the water be stronger, more agile, more efficient, and have more stamina.
