Swim Band Workouts

Keep it simple. Do 3-4 workouts per week, 2 of them should be max and 2 should he hard. See examples below and post on Facebook group if you have questions.

Position yourself so you are either lying flat on a bench / box, or bent over, alternatively have the bands above you so you can mimic the swim technique. You should be able to alter the resistance by stretching the bands or adding a knot to make them shorter. Sessions should be 20-30 mins in length, no more.

Warm up 5 minutes easy alternate arms.

Start with one hand out straight at full reach and the other at your hip. With the outreached arm, pull through to your hip, as you do this, the hand at your hip should move in the opposite direction until it’s at full reach. Repeat this action, as you pull with one arm, the other should be going in reverse to the ‘start catch’ position. The recovery is a mirror opposite of the pull action.
