Change it up with some CHLORINE!

When the days are warm and bright staying indoors doesn’t seem like fun…  Get outside and get moving!  Rather than to do cardiovascular exercise indoors – try something new.  Go for a run, bike ride, hike some hills, or hit the ocean.

In the spirit of watching the swimming olympic trials and feeling the excitement I jumped into the pool.  Go Lochte!  Despite her loss, Dara Torres was phenomenal, she’s a superstar!

Today’s cardiovascular workout was done in an outdoor lap pool…  For those of you who are avid swimmers, give this workout a shot.  If you are not a savvy swimmer – aim for completion of the shorter distances omitting the more tedious distances.  All the distances listed below are in yards and all kick/pull movements should be completed at medium pace/exertion.

  • 100 freestyle warm-up
  • 500 fingertip drills
  • 500 kick 
  • 500 pull 
  • 400 kick
  • 400 pull
  • 300 kick
  • 300 pull
  • 200 kick
  • 200 pull
  • 100 kick
  • 100 pull
  • 100 freestyle (FAST)
  • Stretch

Don’t forget to rinse off the chlorine from your suit!
