Plan Description

10 wk Swimming Specific Strength Training, Injury Prevention, Core, Strength Nutrition Protocols

I made these strength training plans because I am a Sports Chiropractor and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist who is sick and tired of treating injuries in runners, cyclists and triathletes that likely could have been prevented with some simple strength training.

This plan includes Dr. Banas’s resource guide called,

“101 Unique, Cutting Edge, “Non-Run-of-the-Mill” Performance, Fat Loss and Recovery Hacks”

This resource guide gives you instant access to every tool that I recommend to my sports medicine patients and the exclusive athletes I personally coach.

It’s jam-packed practical things you can use to enhance fat loss, recovery and sports performance.

For the price of one co-pay, you can gain strength, power, increase your muscualr fatigue resistance and reduce your likelihood of injury.

Lack strength or power? Suffering from pain? Do you get injured easily?

Are you scrawny or small? Have trouble moving heavy stuff?

Looking for that untapped potential?

Most swimmers do not spend enough time doing strength training. This often leads to muscle imbalance, loss of power and a greater chance of getting injured.
This program takes you step by step though a progressive strength program specially designed for swimmers. Perfect for an off season or build program. This is also great to develop strength to avoid injuries.

In order to gain strength you will start off by doing at least 3 strength sessions a week.

You will be doing 3 weeks of muscular enhancement exercises. Then 3 weeks of Foundation Strength exercises to build a solid foundation and core. Then 3 weeks Progressive Strength exercise, where we will be pushing it harder and really making some strength gains. Then we will move into swim specific power exercises.

Once you have completed this strength program you can maintain the strength you have gained by cutting back to one strength session a week.

We have thrown in some full body, body weight and full body power session along with some metabolic exercises session to boost fat burning.

Specific core training and full body recovery sessions are also included.

The strength sessions are set up for a reason, you need to progress through them and each session is based on the pervious session. So don't skip ahead
