How Do I Swim Smarter?

Dive into 2021 with a focused plan to swim smarter. What does that mean? Let us explain:

  1. Set Goals: Having a goal gives you something to work towards. Make it actionable, trackable, and achievable. Set a goal to swim 15 times in January. If you do not have access to a pool right now, log dryland workouts in the app! Take a step back and look at the entire month to plan what days you are going to swim. Having a plan helps you reach your goals! Keeping a log of each swim, and tracking your progress makes your goal much easier and attainable.
  2. Focus On Technique: Set aside time in every swim workout to focus on your stroke technique, kicking skills and body positioning. Before you swim, watch videos or read some articles on how to do this.
  3. Protect Your Time: During the week, you may feel stretched on time. Follow a plan that sets all your workouts ahead of time for you. This way, you are more able to fit them into your hectic schedule than you thought. You’ll know exactly what you’re doing for the week and how long each workout is.
  4. Stay Focused: By having a plan ahead of time, you know exactly what you’re going to do and when you’re going to do it. One of the worst things that can happen, is to only swim when the mood hits you (or not at all). A plan will keep you focused on where you’re going.
  5. Stay Motivated: Connect with friends or family to keep you excited! Join the Global MySwimPro Community and you’ll feel inspired everyday. If you’re on Facebook, join our private accountability group on Facebook! By adhering to a weekly schedule, you may find that you are staying motivated between and during every session more so than if you didn’t have a plan. Seeing the entire plan laid out in front of you will help visualize success and keep you on track.
  6. Accountability: If you can’t swim with a team or coach, a MySwimPro training plan is for you! We are your accountability partners in this journey. A structured plan will keep your schedule in check and accountable to each and every workout.

  1. Is there a way to get plans using my laptop? I don’t use apps on phones. (Don’t have an Android or iPhone device.)

  2. Great article! It’s a huge advantage to have a friend or your spouse swimming with you, even if you can’t have a group. This keeps you focused and motivated to continue the regimen.
