Swimming is one of the best body weight exercises you can use in your training. You must use maintain good control of your entire body and concentrate on your breathing.
I would highly recommend adding swimming workouts into your routine. It can be hard if there are no swimming pools around, but at least in the summer there are lakes, river and even the ocean for you to swim in.
The best thing about the swimming workout is that you are already in the pool, you can keep hanging out there for the cool down and even stop in the sauna or hot tub for recovery.
1k Swim With A Twist
5 rounds for time
- 200 m swim
- 10 Burpees
- 15 Push Ups
- 20 Air Squats
- 25 Sit Ups
Most swimming pools are 25 m long, competitive pools are 50 m long. 200m should be 4 rounds front and back in the pool. It is good to have some sort of a mat under yourself while doing the sit ups since the bank is not as smooth as a regular gym floor and you can’t wear as much clothes to protect your skin. Good for the burpees too.
