Getting injured is frustrating. You put in so much effort into your training and do not have time to be injured. All of your hard work just seems destined to slip away.
Injuries happen and they are part of life. While we try to prevent injuries as best we can, there are still times that injuries will occur. The good news is that you can still achieve some form of effective training during an injury.

I have an awesome opportunity for you today! As educational institutions adapt to the current reality, one college is taking a whole new approach with a swimming class. The class is focused on how you can become the best swimmer you can be, from technique practices to being a good teammate. As part of this class, I will be giving talks on how to include effective dryland practices as part of a swimmer's training. The topics for discussion were submitted by class participants (all college swimmers).
Ready for the best part?
