Functional Dryland Training for Swimmersby Grif Fig
This video covers the LAPS training philosophy designed by IHPSWIM to ensure that your dryland program targets all the specific areas and movements of the competitive swimmer.The concept of functional training dictates that the body acts in movement patterns, not isolated muscle actions. Therefore our functional dryland training approach focuses on movement actions related to swimming, not isolated body-building exercises.
