Swimming is not only a great way to cool off in the summer, it's an excellent choice for improving cardiovascular endurance, strengthening the musculature of the core, and a popular alternative to traditional forms of cardio.
Adding direct strength training to the muscles on your back side (lats, rhomboids, spinal erectors, glutes, hamstrings, and calves) will go a long way in making your swimming more efficient and effective.
That's why I put together today's workout, just for swimmers that you can do once or twice a week to make sure that backside is doing its part in the pool.
