So what weightlifting exercises for swimmers are the best? Well, the truth is that there are many that will do the trick in terms of tuning up your swimming ability, but for the sake of this article I am only going to talk about one single exercise that will take your swimming to all new levels!
I would like to introduce to you the double arm kettlebell swing. As you may know the ancient kettlebell is taking the strength and conditioning and fitness community here in the states by storm. I guarantee you that you will never experience any single exercise that will get your heart rate up like this one. The double arm swing is done by swinging the bell back and forth from between your legs up to chest height.
In order to do this you have to utilize your hips in a motion known as the hip snap. The hip snap is done by both flexing and extending at the hips and knees in continuous motion. This hip snap is how you create the necessary momentum to swing the kettlebell back and forth in an arc like motion. This single motion integrates over hundreds of muscles and will give you superior cardiovascular conditioning! All the necessary muscle groups that you need to function in the water will be getting tuned up with every repetition of this particular motion.
If you are serious about your swimming program then don’t sell yourself short. Take the time to learn about the proper technique involved in the kettlebell swing. I’ll even make it easy for you by telling you that you can access all of my other articles here for free! Train hard and enjoy my friend.
