The Face-Out Swimming Workout
Updated: Jan 30, 2022
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.
4 x (100 backstroke / 25 front sculling) 8 x 100 kick, 3 freestyle, 4th one flutter kick, with board and fins, 20 seconds rest.
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
