As a beginner triathlete, I working towards a good base before the the real training starts. Running is my jam, so I really need to work on my biking and most importantly, my swimming. I’ve created this Strength Training Workout For Swimmers for myself in order to be a stronger swimmer.
As a working mom, my best time-saving strategy is to use my 1 hour lunch for my workouts. But when you figure in drive time and changing time, I only really have 30 minutes to actually work out. Now that I’ve committed to doing my first triathlon in August, I’ve started swimming. I also want to work on getting stronger as a swimmer . I have designed my strength training program for my 30 minute lunch workouts.
Because I’m not an expert or a trainer, I’ve consulted various websites to come up with my plan (see references below). I selected the exercises for my 30 Min Strength Training Workout For Swimmers based on the equipment available at the gym I go to, as well as what I think I can do in 30 minutes. I also tried to make this a total body workout by selecting exercises that would work the arms, core and legs.
30 Min Strength Training Workout For Swimmers
The following plan is to be done in a circuit, doing 3 full circuits, here it is:

Join the conversation, let’s discuss:
