Here are some ways to exercise at home during lockdown which perfect for the older kids within our Swim School. I would suggest doing them for 45 seconds then have 15 seconds rest, and repeat as many times as you like!
1. Squat jumps into streamline
Perfect for strengthening the legs while also practicing the push off from the tumble turn to help you get the most out of your turns!
2. Flutter kicks
Lay on your back, raise your legs and begin to kick like you’re swimming backstroke. You can lift your head to make it harder. This works on your core and helps with practicing the motion for backstroke kick.
Perfect for working on your upper body strength.
This is a great way to work the whole body, you can make it harder/easier to suit the level, by either adding in a push-up, or taking it away.
Planking is another great core exercise, especially for a swimmer as there can never be too much emphasis placed on having a good core!
