This is a once a week swim + shoulder stability workout to compliment a strength training plan. It starts off easy, assuming you are not in optimal swimming shape, and builds its way up to a more difficult workout. The first three weeks are focusing on drills and getting the feeling of the water. Quality before quantity. The rest of the workouts alternate: endurance focused, threshold focused, and sprint focused. Aiming to change the workouts up and have you be well trained in various levels of exertion.
