Swim Prehab Exercise 1: TRX Swimmers Pull

This exercise forms the first part of the Speedy Swimming Prehab strength training series for swimming

Do you expect the best from your body and your swimming?

In swimming front crawl, our arms are moving in a forward motion constantly, and this exercise is excellent at maintain good posture, scapular position and enabling more force to be applied through the upper body from better scapular control and shoulder stability. You'll be targeting your rhomboids and lower trapezius and rotator cuff muscles.

The TRX Swimmers Pull exercise is brilliant for engaging your core, rear delts, and the big powerful latissimus pulling muscles used for swimming! Keep your arms straight throughout, and chest lifted, retracting the shoulder blades to finish. This is hard to do properly yet is very effective!

This will work the muscles around your shoulder blades. Lower back under control to the start position and repeat 10-15 times at a tempo of 3 seconds in, hold 1 second, and 3 seconds out.
