Pilates for swimmers – Class to challenge and strengthen muscle groups used in swimming movements
This is a short mat based class which has been designed for swimmers involving some flexibility, strength and stability, which are all important components for a good swimming technique.
We start this Pilates for swimmers class in sitting and begin by stretching and opening out through our upper backs and shoulders, areas which can often become stiff in swimmers.
Moving around onto our fronts on the mat we continue to work on our lumbo-pelvic control with a swimming movement in this position as well as some upper body strength and stability with a swan dive movement. We then stretch out through our spines to finish the class.
