Incorporating land-based strength and conditioning into a training regimen can give a swimmer a competitive edge. As with every sport, there are sport-specific exercises the athlete should perform in order to mimic the specific sport movement they are trying to improve.

Depending on the competition level of the individual, the sport of swimming can be a year-round commitment and require a very demanding training schedule. Incorporating land-based strength and conditioning into a training regimen can give the athlete a competitive edge, especially in a sport where a 100th of a second could determine the outcome of a race. This article describes the components that go into a well-designed land-based training program for swimmers, and provides sample workouts.

This article originally appeared in Personal Training Quarterly (PTQ)—a quarterly publication for NSCA Members designed specifically for the personal trainer.
