In this course we'll work on your arm recovery. You want to have a "high elbow" recovery, which means your elbow leads your recovery. By doing this, your hand and forearm stay relaxed. A smooth and relaxed recovery will make your stroke more efficient and will keep your body high and horizontal in the water, while also having a good hand entry. A good arm recovery can also help prevent injuries. Win-win-win!

What to expect?

This course is 4 weeks with a total of 8 workouts, 2 each week. We will focus on the arm recovery by using specific drills to improve this. We will work on your body rotation, high-elbow recovery as well as your hand entry. 

How does it work?

Each week you follow 2 instruction videos with technique exercises that will help you learn all the elements of a high elbow recovery. In the first two weeks we will focus on body rotation, since you need to be able to rotate in order to have a high elbow recovery. In the third week we will incorporate body rotation with high-elbow recovery drills. And in the final week we will put it all together. 

After watching an instruction video you can practice this exercise in a pool near you. When you have completed the exercise you can finish your swim with a body conditioning workout that is included in every step. This way you improve your technique, endurance and strength all in one workout. 

Training Equipment: We advise you to use the following training equipment: a kick board and pull buoy (both floating devices), a snorkel and fins.

THE PERFECT COMBINATION

I started with SwimGym coaching as a complete novice. To be honest, I barely floated. Within weeks my skills improved and within months I made my way into the mid-level and ultimately to the pro’s. The perfect combination of technique training and a total body workout.

COMPLETED AN OPEN WATER RACE

I started with SwimGym training courses after I got my swimming diploma, so I was a real novice. In a year and a half, I have advanced to the mid-level, completed a 1500m open water race and realised my dream of learning how to kitesurf, all thanks to the swimming foundation laid by SwimGym.
