My Swimming Training: Where Do I Start?

Insurance many times in your swimming workout you repeated yourself “today I’m going to swim 2000 m!” and when you are trying you get bored of always doing the same and not to reach your goal. With the tips in this post I will try to keep away boredom in your sessions in the pool!

Improve Your Swimming Training

It is important to go to the pool with “notes”, nothing better to prepare our training of swimming in advance to take advantage of our long. Each will prepare its session on the basis of its objective, and each session will be different in every moment of the season.

One of advice, the paper by the pool gets wet and useless, I use a freezing bag with an airtight seal and I can assure you that it works very well. And where to put it to see it better? I usually put on the table and the pullboy, since I always get them to my sessions.

In terms of the contents of our session, we go beyond! A good training of swimming will be structured in three parts according to HOMEAGERLY:

  1. Warming
  2. The main part
  3. The cooling or return to calm.

I personally depending on the style working on global warming give more emphasis to the style that I work, i.e., if the session is crawl, warming take to work. Example: 100m crawl/100 breaststroke/100 breaststroke/100 back/100 breaststroke. (Total: 500m, 300 of whom are crawl).

After the warm-up work always something feet, for example 4 x 50 feet of crawl with table and head out (4 series of 50 m each).

Is important that in each session we work technique, we can do between 5 and 8 technical exercises, if we talk about crawl we can consult the previous post of the magnificent seven where they appear for me, the best and most famous (point died, touching shoulders, touching thighs, rubbing the tip of the fingers on the surface of the water, swimming with closed fists and open hand (, regain inner…), as well as the videoblog of front crawl technique.

We can work force using material. Breathing will work it doing exercises in apnea, by varying the frequency of the breathing, making pyramids of breathing (25m breathing every two strokes, 25m breathing every three, four, five and the descent, five, four, three and two) everyone can demand whatever he wants. It should take into account before self-demand in which we are and our capabilities. No force, we will be improving little by little.

Series long or short depending on what you are looking for can be: bottom, power, speed, etc.

Finally, the return to calm should be very soft so our muscles relax and leave the water in good condition.

In my next post we facilitate several sessions of training between 2000 and 3000 m in volume with different objectives, so that you have a specific reference to start and as I said at the beginning of the post, boredom do not you visit in the pool!

I hope!
