How to Stay "Swimfit" without a Pool, Part 1

We get it, you are stuck inside and have no pool to keep up with your aquatics conditioning -- and that bathtub just won't cut it! Not to worry, our swim instructor Maggie has some ideas for you to keep that swimfit bod you've worked hard for!

Try either or both of these workouts. You could work every other day with the body weight exercises or running exercise. And if you're ambitious try alternating body weight and running days. Good luck!

Using Body Weight, do 3-4 sets:

  • 8-10 Push Ups
  • 10 Squats
  • 8-10 Chair Triceps Dips
  • 8-10 ea. Side Reverse Lunges
  • 6-8 Down Dog Push Ups
  • 8-10 ea. Side Step Ups
  • 20 Crunches
  • 10 ea. Side Crunches
  • 10 Supermans
  • 30 sec. Plank (high or low)
  • 15 sec. ea. Side Plank

Running routine to try!

Day 1: Run for 20 minutes non-stop
Day 2: Run for 30 minutes non-stop
Day 3: Run for 5-minute on, 5 minutes off of running walking intervals, now is the time to run a  little faster!
Day 4: How fast can you run/walk a mile?
Day 5: Try for going to 3 miles!

For the next week, try for farther distances or faster time! You got this, work hard, stay strong!
