Have you grown bored of your lap swimming routine? Our tips can help revitalize your next swim workout and break through the repetition!
As the weather starts to heat up, lap swimming can be a great excercise alternative to running. The only down side to swimming however, is how quickly the workout can become repetitive as you continuously swim up and down the lanes of your local pool. To help break out of this repetitiveness we have put a list together of our top tips to help spice up your next swim workout.
Break it up – Swimming 20 laps up and down the pool can become quiet tedious. So next time you go for a swim try breaking up those laps with set goals and different break intervals. For example, instead of swimming 20 laps freestyle up the pool, try breaking it into 5 laps and give yourself a break between intervals.
Vary your strokes – Change up your strokes regularly during your exercise routine. Start off with your favourites and then switch it up after every few laps. This change will keep your mind alert and is short enough intervals so that you can increase your focus on technique.
Invite a friend – No matter what type of workout you are doing, having a friend there will always make it better. Whether you have your mind set on racing each other every few laps or having somebody to talk to between intervals they can help motivate and entertain you during your lap swimming.
Utilize equipment – Adding swim equipment to your workout can be a great way to change up your routine as well as improving technique. For example, adding flippers to your workout can assist in improving ankle flexibility and implementing a kick board can also help your body stay afloat so you can focus solely on improving your kicking technique.
Change of scenery – A change of scenery can be just what you need to spice up your workout. This change can mean completely swapping the lap pool for a swim at the beach or just feeling the sun on your back by opting to swim in the outdoor pool instead of the indoor one.
Focus on improving – With every lap and different stroke, switch your mind to focus solely on stroke technique. This could mean focusing on your arm technique during freestyle for 5 laps, identifying what you can improve and then switching your focusing to your kicking technique.
Counting - Whether you are counting the tiles on the pool floor or the number of strokes every lap, counting is a great way to make the laps less repetitive and can actually be quite relaxing too. Counting your strokes can also be a good measure of your improvements as a decreasing number of strokes can indicate a more efficient technique.
We hope these tips help switch-up your next swim workout!
