Swimming improves core, muscular, and cardiovascular strength and endurance, all in a low-impact, gravity-free workout. If done two to several times per week, or as an addition to a multi-sport training regime, swimming helps maintain a healthy weight, heart, and lungs. These benefits are best realized within the diversity of your workouts.
To increase your swim fitness it is optimal to vary intensity, interval distances, recovery, and strokes, all within one workout session. The diversity within a workout is what triggers the body to grow stronger, faster, and more proficient.
Whether you only have time to swim 1000 meters/yards, or are up for 5000 at each session, The Swimmer’s Workout Handbook organizes speed, distance, and technique into these 100 fun and challenging training sessions—putting vitality back into your pool time.
