Many people choose swimming as their preferred method of working out. This is a great decision as swimming is a great way to get the lean, toned and muscular body that you may desire while also having fun and getting a great cardio workout in, too. When you can’t hit the pools though, you may find yourself having trouble getting your usual workout in. Thankfully, there are a couple ways you can remedy this. Here are some great ways to get your swim workout in from home, without swimming, and without the need of flippers, or bathing suits!
If you’re looking to find the same effects from a regular day at the pool, simply follow the workout instructions below:
Warming up is essential for any workout. Just as you would take a couple of casual laps around the pool before getting into the heart of your workout, it is important that you warm up this way out of the pool, too. Warm up for 2-5 minutes by doing things that require shoulder movement. Jumping jacks is a great option for this.
Your swim workout (without the swimming) should look like this:
- 20 squat jumps
- 10 lunge jumps
- 10 dive bomber pushups (or Hindu pushups)
- 20 regular squats
- 10 lunges with twists (per side)
- 20 front plank taps (per side)
- 20 side plank rotations (per side)
- 20 supermans
- 20 flutter kicks (per side)
Repeat 1-3 times.
