swimming workoutsEveryone in swimming becomes stagnant at times when it comes to their workouts. You know some, but thinking of new swimming workouts becomes a pain after a while. Remember there are many different types of workouts that you can do in the water: interval workouts are great for speed and distance workouts are great for endurance. When you put them together you will help yourself get faster and stronger in the water.

At times it’s not the workouts that are boring, but going to the pool by yourself to swim. If this is the case for you, find a friend to swim with or join a swim team.
