YOGA POSTURING ALSO WILL WORK MUSCLES IN THE UPPER BACK AND SHOULDERS. �YOGA EMPHASIZES CONTROLLED BREATHING, AN ESSENTIAL PART OF EVERY SWIMMING STROKE. SWIMMING AND YOGA ARE MORE ALIKE THAN YOU MIGHT THINK, AND GO HAND IN HAND WITH EACH OTHER.
  3. 3. ANY TYPE OF RUNNING IS BENEFICIAL TO SWIMMERS. WHETHER IT BE DISTANCE, INTERVAL, OR HILL TRAINING, RUNNING IS A GREAT WAY TO TRAIN FOR MENTAL AND AEROBIC STAMINA. �RUNNING ALSO PROMOTES MENTAL STAMINA, MUCH LIKE SWIMMING.

  4. 4. WATER POLO THIS ONE MAY SEEM LIKE A NO-BRAINER BUT WATER POLO IS A GREAT COMPLEMENT TO SWIMMING. ASIDE FROM THE OBVIOUS (SWIMMING), IT HELPS THE SWIMMERS GET A GOOD FEEL OF HOW THEIR BODIES MOVE IN THE WATER.
