Hola everybody. Today your workouts revolve around two very different concepts. The first workout is a slow burn max strength set on machines in the gym. This workout is designed to get your muscles to hit maximum fatigue and then fail. This is why it’s on machines, to keep things safe. The second is a swimming workout!! Whoa, i know, we haven’t done one of these for a while. It’s a good intermediate workout or the reason we’ve created it, as a additional add-on to an existing cardio workout.

Slow Max Out:
Like we’ve said above, this workout is going to get you to hit maximum muscle utilisation and then, ideally, failure. We achieve this on machines for two of the three muscle groups to ensure that your technique stays true and the moves are safe. Each set is designed to be achieved with the heaviest weight you are confident with. That’s key there, don’t let ego get in the way here – work your way up through weights, understand where your capabilities are. The good thing about this, you’ll get to do this workout several times as you discover where those loads are.
This workout is designed to be added to an existing cardiovascular workout to promote multi-discipline endurance and transitional ability. In other words, we envisage you going for a run, or a ride, or even a prior gym session and then hitting the pool whilst the body is still in work mode. This is going to force your body to adapt, to utilise muscles that are currently geared for another activity and to get you transition into swimming. As another training usage – if you’re on your journey to becoming a stronger swimming, this may serve quite well as a workout on it’s own.
Keep your training varied – the more variation you can expose the body to (within the parameters of what you want to achieve), the better your overall fitness ability will be.
