A full-body workout that targets nearly every muscle group at once, swimming has multiple benefits such as conditioning the cardiovascular system, relieving stress, lowering blood pressure and aiding in rehabilitation. The typical swim training session will include sculling and skating to improve strength, power and technique, often followed by endurance drills and sprints; challenging you to keep the steady pace of your critical swim speed from the push-off to the final length. Mastering bi-lateral breathing, sighting and drafting require diligent training, enabling streamlining and efficiency from drills to competitions.
