For the past few months, SwimSwam has been posting a daily swimming workout to help inspire swim coaches around the world who are looking for new ideas to try with their swimmers. Since most of the world’s pools are currently closed for business, we wanted to give swimmers and coaches an alternative set of dryland workouts to use to stay fit during the quarantine. These workouts will be designed to be done around the house. Some will use basic equipment, like medicine balls or stretch cords, while others will be all body-weight exercises.

These workouts are provided for informational purposes only.

Did you bypass a tough workout already this week? Use this day to make up the one you skipped:


Follow this full warmup plan from Redefining Strength.

Main Set

Yoga, with Jeff Grace. Work through these two workouts.


Use this time to do another active activity that you can safely do while social distancing. Go on a brisk walk around the neighborhood, throw a frisbee with a sibling or a parent, chip some golf balls in the back yard. Whatever gets you moving but isn’t too heavy on your muscles.
