Abstract

ABSTRACT: SPORT-SPECIFIC STRENGTH TRAINING FOR SWIMMERS IS ACHIEVED BY PERFORMING EXERCISES THAT STIMULATE THE SAME MUSCLES IN THE SAME MANNER AS THE SWIM. SPORT-SPECIFIC EXERCISES CAN HELP INCREASE STRENGTH, POWER, AND BODY CONTROL AND DECREASE THE RISK OF SHOULDER INJURIES. WHEN 100TH OF A SECOND COULD DETERMINE FIRST TO THIRD PLACE, THE PURPOSE OF THIS ARTICLE WAS TO DEVELOP A SPORT-SPECIFIC STRENGTH TRAINING REGIMEN FOR A COMPETITIVE FREESTYLE SWIMMER.
