Workout for Swimmers

Workout plans are not only important in the gym but in the water as well.  Instead of swimming aimlessly, find or make up a workout with times to stick by so you are actually pushing yourself and getting your heart rate up.   If you have access to a pool I highly recommend you switching up your basic gym routine and adding swimming to the mix.  It is great for endurance we well as strength training. 

Below you will find a great 1 hour sprint workout.  If the intervals don’t work for you, adjust as necessary.
