pool strength

workout: cross training day in the water. 100 meter freestyle warmup, 400 meters with flippers, 400 meters with pull buoy, 200 meters freestyle to cool down.

I introduced flippers to my workout last week just going with 100 meters today I lengthened the workout with flippers to 400 meters. I didn’t realize how much they would work my hips and ankles. Not to mention that it would force proper kicking technique otherwise I really didn’t go anywhere when I was kicking. The pull buoy for 400 meters was awesome as well as I was able to really get my upper body going. It wasn’t a very long workout but it was enough to get my muscles working and my workout done for the day. Tomorrow is another pool cross train which I might double up some riding on the trainer.
