Dryland Training Program

 

ACE swimmers (currently, Challengers through Seniors) have the opportunity to participate in a highly recommended, but optional dryland training program.

The Xplosive Edge program for the ACE swimmers is designed to compliment the training we are doing in the pool. The purpose of this program is to strengthen the swimmer’s body to prevent injuries and gain long and lean muscle strength while focusing on balance and flexibility not building bulk.

 

Swimmers will work on building flexibility, explosiveness and strength, while focusing on balance, core strength and stability.  Another great feature included in the training is an extensive nutrition seminar. The creator of this nutrition program also designed the USA Olympic Swim Team nutrition plan.

 

Our swimmers will be working exclusively with three coaches on the X Edge team dedicated specifically for ACE.  All of the X Edge staff have formal degrees in exercise science and their certification in sports training. 

This optional dryland training program is in addition to the swimmers in-pool workouts.
