Richie and Mark's top tips

I find that swimming is not as time-consuming as cycling. Just an hour in the pool and you feel fantastic.


  1. MIX IT UP
    Alternating your strokes, distance and routines while swimming helps you ensure that you’ll get an all-encompassing workout in the water. It also allows you to hone in on specific goals.


  2. VARY YOUR PACE
    Changing your swimming pace, from relaxed to full effort, is the perfect tactic. This allows you to build up your stamina, helping you last longer and tackle various goals, such as shedding fat, improving lung capacity, and recovering from tougher sessions.


  3. BUST OUT SOME KICK
    Using a kickboard, help your legs recover with some low-impact kick training, perfect after a day’s cycling.


  4. ADD FINS TO YOUR WORKOUT
    Swimming while wearing fins help you move faster, pushing your legs’ ability thanks to the increased resistance. It also feels great to go faster with support.


  5. KEEP IT INTERESTING
    Utilise Speedo's Swim Coach workouts and training plans to get the most of your swim sessions, mixing up your workouts and keeping it interesting.
