One of the best ways to replicate swimming motion/action is to use Therabands or Stretch Cordz – you have probably seen these at the pool before. Therabands are pretty cheap and you might even have them at your house already.
When I have used these at PRMS I have hooked them up to the pool ladder, starting blocks, many places to loop them. There are 5 different levels of resistance – Most 12 and under swimmers would need yellow or silver.
13 and over girls green – 13 and over boys Red.
- Silver (3-8 lb).
- Yellow (5-14 lb).
- Green (8-24 lb).
- Red (12-31 lb).
- Blue (14-34 lb)
Please ask if any questions!
