The Face-Out Swimming Workout
Updated: Jan 30
There are two reasons I can think of that you might need this workout:
You forgot your goggles.
You scrapped your face along the road.
In any case, here's a workout you can do without getting your face or eyes wet (much). Can't vouch for how your neck is going to feel afterwards.
100 easy backstroke kick (hands stretched out behind you)
8 x 25 water polo drill fast. 20 seconds rest.
100 sculling with pull buoy (25 side sculling, 25 front sculling)
8 x 25 kick with board fast, no fins. 20 seconds rest.
100 backstroke easy
Total workout distance: 2000 yards/meters
