EPISODE 8 - Eli Danson on Dry-Land for Swimmers
In Episode 8 of the podcast, I spoke with Eli Danson regarding dry-land for swimmers. We got into a wide range of topics specific to the subject and what we believe works best for swimmers. We start off by talking about the most optimal way to structure an age group dry-land program (2:12); the value of developing strength on dry-land and its application to swimming (7:11); the value of developing power on dry-land and its application to swimming (9:05); the best way to structure dry-land for 10 & unders (hint - games!) (15:54); developing athleticism in swimmers (18:24); an upper body progression for swimmers to build strength and power on dry-land (26:50); the value of adding muscle mass to improve swimming performance at the elite level (37:22); and the difference between high school and collegiate athletes in terms of the amount of muscle mass needed for high performance (39:09); and much more!
