Have you ever wondered what you could be doing out of the pool to increase your strength in the water? This Whiteboard Wednesday dives into 30 different dryland workouts you can try with suspension cables.

30 Workout Ideas

What is Dryland Training

Dryland Training (often referred to as Strength and Conditioning) is activity done on land with the intended purpose of increasing strength, flexibility and overall physical mobility. This includes a number of different movements and exercises ranging from beginner to advanced skill level. Some exercises that are commonly performed include: Pushups, sit-ups, squats, etc.

Why It’s Important

Incorporating an element of dryland training into your workout routine is important for three main reasons:

  • Prevent Injury – corrects for muscle imbalances and weak core strength.
  • Increases Stroke Rate – allows you to take more strokes in less time with more power.
  • Improves Distance Per Stroke – more power application per stroke allows you to swim further with less effort.

The goal of any dryland program for swimmers is to become stronger and more explosive in the water while decreasing your risk of injury.
