Even if you have been doing swim workouts for a while, once you up your fitness game with your swimming muscles, your workout program results will go from good to great.

SWIM WORKOUTS TO UP YOUR FITNESS GAME Swimming has long been considered one of the best full body workouts as it uses all of the body’s major muscle groups. Our arms, legs, chest, core and back are all put to work during swimming.


Bench Press For bench press, lay down on a weight bench or on the floor with your feet on the floor and lift a bar of weights (or 2 dumbbells) upwards and back down. Repeat movement 10 times.

Pushups Lay on your stomach on the floor or exercise mat. Push yourself up with your arms and hold yourself steady.

Inhale while slowly bending your elbows and lowering yourself down

Bent Over Rows Grab a dumbbell in each hand and bend at the waist, arching your back. With your hands just wider than your shoulders, pull your elbows to your hips and then slowly lower them back down.

Arms Your arms are one of the main muscle groups that are used in swim workouts, so strengthening them is vital to make the most of your swim workouts.

Core Core exercises are important for swimming and so much more. These core exercises will help you to strengthen your core.


Legs Leg muscles are the strongest muscle group we have and burn the most calories.

Bicycling or Spinning Another great exercise for your legs is cycling. You can grab your bike and hit the road to strengthen your leg muscles or you can hop onto a stationary or spinning bike!
