Train like an Olympian – Swimming

Feeling inspired by the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games? Try this workout to get results in the pool!

If you’re like us, watching the Aussies dominate in the water has got you wanting to get in the pool!

Our trainers are here to help and have put together a swimming program in our PARC Fit app, which incorporates both water and dryland exercises so you can get the best results in the pool.

Dryland training takes place, you guessed it, on dry land. The goal is to use strength and conditioning exercises to increase power, mobility, and flexibility. For swimmers, this means the ultimate goal is to become more explosive in the water, increase speed and stroke rate, and improve distance per stroke. This type of training is also designed to reduce the risk of injury. 

Here are our top 7 exercises to do in the gym so you can see results in the water!

  1. Push-ups
  2. Pullups
  3. Squats
  4. Jump Rope
  5. Flutter Kicks
  6. Superman
  7. Russian Twist

Visit the PARC Fit app to see the different swimming workouts of the day. With the programs ranging from beginners to advanced, there is something to help all levels of skill.
