Workout Recommendations from Coach Rick

Tritons

Since everything has been cleared through insurance, I can now provide some suggested exercises and videos for our swimmers.

But before I start, let’s get some general rules

  1. The videos demonstrate each exercise, so if you have ANY doubt how to do it, watch before trying.
  2. Learn your limits. Initially, you’ll tire easily. As soon as you can’t do an exercise properly, stop doing that exercise.
  3. Listen to your body. Feeling tired is ok. But feeling pain is not ok. If something is painful, STOP! Then try to figure out why it’s painful. Are you doing the movements properly? Are you too tired to do them properly? Do not proceed until you can do it safely and without pain.

OK, here they are

Yoga is fantastic to maintain mobility. You’ll feel better if you’re mobile, and you’ll be MUCH more prepared to train, whenever that happens.

 

I’ve reviewed a bunch of these, and they’re very useful. It’s best to keep to the basic ones until you get a lot more experienced.
