Week 10 - 4.1 Alternating Swim
For todays session, you will be swimming. It is an excellent method to work without causing undue stress or fatigue whilst working your endurance.
Non-Impact Cardio. Swim, Ocean or pool.
Work on your swimming strokes, if you're comfortable enough, work on your forward strokes. Otherwise, alternate between "comfortable and uncomfortable" strokes - challenge yourself to new things. Warm up for 5/10 minutes, then:
Forward strokes can be a combination of Freestyle, Breast stroke or if you're feeling pretty fancy, butterfly stroke. Depending on your swimming ability, you can alternate between these or for the 1 min alternate you can use the Combat Side Stroke or any variation of Back stroke you are comfortable with.
Don’t go too hard, there’s plenty opportunity for this later. Pace yourself and maintain discipline.
IF you are not at the standard where you are able to attempt or complete these, have a look at our Complete Strength & Conditioning Program. You should already have a firm base before attempting this volume of training and our paid programs are developed to get you there.
