Swimming Stretch Cord Exercises

Swimming Stretch Cord Exercises

Your catch in the swim is your key limiter to build strength in the swim. The more quickly you are able to rotate your shoulder and set up the pull, the better and efficient you’ll be. All athletes can afford to be stronger in the initial phase of their catch. As you are swimming more than three times a week, it is very beneficial to implement stretch-cord sessions of 10 – 15 min per week. You must use perfect form at all times with these exercises ( or any technical drill, for that matter). Focus on technique before trying to move quickly or under load. The learning progression for any new skill or movement pattern is the same. Link: http://www.byrn.org/gtips/swimcords.htm

Keep in mind that you must:

  • learn the movement patter slowly
  • Add speed
  • Add resistance
  • Perform under stress
