Core Stabilization with Lat Pull

Uploaded on June 7, 2013 by G_John

Purpose: Stabilizing the core while activating the arms is essential in every swimming stroke. Too often, swimmers have poor core stability during their catch dissipating the force created with their arms. This exercise integrates core stability and arm contraction. Directions: Have the athlete lie on their back with a ball between their knees and their arms pointed toward the ceiling. Next, have the swimmer maximally contract their core and squeeze the ball. A partner will then gradually press through the swimmer’s hand with the swimmer matching the partner’s strength. Then, the partner will gradually decrease their pressure and switch sides. Repeat for approximately 30 seconds.
