Time: 20 minutes
Here is a simple 1000 yard swim workout meant to help you build cardiovascular and muscular endurance.
A Swim Workout to Build Endurance:
- 200 yard warm up, no resting between laps.
- Six sets of 100 yard swimming, resting 30 seconds between each set.
- 200 yard cool-down, no resting between laps.
No specific stroke is designated in this workout, as the point of this workout is to build endurance, not develop stroke technique. Choose whatever stroke you feel most comfortable with, and feel free to switch up your swim strokes between sets if your muscles start to cramp.
