Advanced Swimming Routines
The advanced swimming routines are intended for individuals that have been regularly swimming for several years, at either the recreational or competitive levels. Typical individuals that perform an advanced swimming routine will generally train at least 10 to 15 hours per week in the pool.
In addition, most advanced swimmers will also perform some other form of exercise to complement their swimming efforts and improve their performance.
It is important that individuals that perform an advanced swimming routine focus on consuming a high quality diet, on a daily basis, and replenish their body after each workout.
Advanced swimmers also need to "listen to their body" and know when to allow their body to rest, whether it be due to general fatigue or a slight injury. In addition, at this level, individuals need to ensure that they take the time to properly stretch and warm up before and after each workout.
