Swimming Strength and Conditioning: A Comprehensive Course in Dryland Training

Introduction - Swimming provides a unique set of athletic and fitness circumstances requiring a basic understanding of biomechanics, exercise science, force production and swimming technique. While there are principles of strength and conditioning universal to all fitness and athletic endeavors, swimming requires a special contextual application of those principles.

This course is designed to establish a unified research-based set of training principles and techniques which will enable swim programs to develop their athletes in a more systematic and scientific fashion.

Content consists of diverse topics covering the basic movement-based principles of strength and conditioning, successful dryland programming for any age and ability, strength training for older, more experienced swimmers and finally recovery, flexibility and mobility training.

Participants can also take part in the techniques of strength training in hands-on workshops to develop a practical understanding of instruction.

Program -  The 8-hour program will be broken-down into four modules which can be taken as a comprehensive course on swimming strength and conditioning training
