8 CrossFit Workouts with Swimming for Athletes of All Abilities

These workouts can all be done at the pool, require no extra equipment, and will allow you to mix this excellent exercise into your programming.

5. Swimming Around

4 rounds for time

  • 50 m Swim Sprint
  • 50 m Backstroke
  • 25 m Legless Swim
  • 25 m Armless Swim

This may sound a bit weird if you have not done a lot of swimming. Try to make your legs do all the work in the armless swim, and in the legless swim it is harder but push through the 25 m. In the armless swim it gets pretty tough to lift up the head to breath, if you can skip the breathing for 25 m it is fine, otherwise you may use the arms just for to help the head get some air.
