Swim exercises (dryland)
Dryland training is good for the flexibility and the strength in the shoulder and main muscles. Uperform Coaching have made some videos as inspiration for dryland exercises. Some of them are good for opening up the shoulder and breast, and some of them are focusing on specific muscles and techniques there are essential for a strong swim. You can do all the exercises with a simple training elastic, but you can also use an elastic like StrechCordz with swim paddels on. The most important is the elastic not are too hard because the you may be injured if you don’t make the exercises right and if the elastic is to easy then you will not get the optimal effect of the exercise. Therefore, you need to find an elastic for your level.
It is important to say, that dryland training cannot stand alone and it cannot replace normal swim training. Dryland training is a good supplement to the normal swim training.
