WODprep Strategy Top Tips:

To start, warming up is crucial. Spend about 5-10 minutes doing light aerobic activity like jogging or cycling to get your heart rate up. Then, move on to dynamic stretches for your shoulders, arms, and legs to loosen up those muscles. Finally, hop into the pool and swim a few laps at an easy pace, gradually picking up speed.

Now, it’s time to work on your technique. Incorporate some swimming drills to improve your form and efficiency. Try drills like freestyle catch-up, fingertip drag, or single-arm drills. These will help you fine-tune your stroke mechanics.

Every CrossFit athlete will have a different background when it comes to swimming, so here’s a breakdown of benchmarks for you to aim for: 

Ex-swimmers: aim for 1:15 per 100m
Advanced aim for: 1:30 per 100m
Inter: aim for 2mins per 100m
Beginner: 2:30mins per 100m
