Injury Prevention



There are many ways a swimming can cause injury.


  • Poor technique

  • Decreased flexibility or strength

  • Overuse

  • Changes in training

  • Swimming already injured

  • Poor Nutrition



In my opinion dryland, strength training and stretching programs have significantly reduced athlete injury. They improve swimmers' overall muscle development, endurance, and athleticism, allowing for better and more consistent stroke mechanics.





Strength Training Focus

  • Improving stability of the shoulders (Rotator cuff and scapular muscles)

  • Thigh muscles and hip muscles to improve kick.

  • Abdominal muscles and core


Using swimming aids such as pull-buoys or paddles creates gradual resistance in the water- also provides targeted muscle group conditioning.
