PILATES FOR SWIMMING

Swimming is an excellent way of exercising and improving both cardiovascular fitness as well as strength. It is unfortunately also associated with various injuries including shoulders and lower back.

Preparation is key to prevent injury and the following Pilates based exercise is a great way to strengthen the appropriate structures.

It can also be used as a warm up exercise prior to your swimming session. Try it!

1. Start in four point kneeling with your abdominals gently engaged.
2. Try to keep your pelvis and low back stable throughout the whole movement sequence.
3. Slide one leg back and gently lift slightly off the floor.
4. If this is easy, try to extend the opposite arm in front you and gently lower.
Complete 10 repetitions on each side for 2-3 sets. Remember the aim is to control the movement without allowing the pelvis or spine to rotate excessively.

Good luck!
