I felt a calling a few days ago to start doing what I can for those in need. Since I work online I figured one of the best ways to do this was help all the swimmers in need that don’t have access to a pool.
Most people don’t know that my educational background is actually in Strength and Conditioning. I have a Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science, along with a Masters of Science in Strength and Conditioning. My goal was to fully understand how to train someone to move well and efficiently on land—to then, transfer that to the water.
With this calling, I decided to live stream some free dryland workouts for swimmers everyday (Mon-Sat) at 1:30PM EST. All these dryland workouts can be done in your home. No equipment is required, but if you have the ability to get a few things—it will be helpful. The aim of these dryland workouts are to be for swimmers ages 10 years and up. If you are younger, you can still participate—I would encourage you to have a parent participating in the dryland workouts with you though!
Here’s a list of must-haves:
- Parental Permission (if you are under 18)
- A water bottle
- A great attitude
- Running shoes
- Open spot in your home
- 30 minutes to spare
- Internet connection
- Device to stream the workouts
Helpful, but not necessary:
- Pair of heavy dumbbells (anywhere from 10-25lbs depending on how old you are)
- Pair of light dumbbells (2-3 lbs each) (soup cans work as a great substitue for this)
- Yoga Mat
- Resistance Bands– I love Crossover Symmetry. Use promo code: SwimLikeA.Fish at checkout to receive 15% off!
- Foam Roller
- Tennis Ball
- Yoga Block
To sign up for these dryland workouts, click here. I’ve heard from multiple people that my emails after you confirm are going to your SPAM inbox. Please, check that after registration. If you’re on gmail, drag my email from your SPAM inbox to your PRIMARY inbox so moving forward all my emails will be sent to your PIMARY inbox from now on.
See you all soon!
Without swimming pools available, how can I do swimming lessons on dry land, for kids?
You can work with them in smaller, baby pools — even a bath tub. Or just this time to do dryland training and stuff on land!
