Strongman Training for Swimmers



On swimming’s opening night at the Olympic Games, NBC ran a nice feature on Ryan Lochte showcasing his dryland training with tire flips, chains, and other competitive strongman moves.  While avid swim fans have long been familiar with Lochte’s training methods, this footage made quite a splash with casual swim fans and the general viewing public.  In this post we’ll explore what, if anything, we can glean from Lochte’s strongman for swimmers training routine.  Though we’re always looking to learn from the best performers, just because a great swimmer does something doesn’t mean everyone should copy the exact details.  Please visit HERE at Swimming Science for the complete post.
