Dry swimming is a simple and quick way to exercise the upper body.
Standing upright, start with forward crawl strokes.
Then, follow with breast stoke strokes.
Then, back crawl strokes.
Beginners should start with 10 strokes of each type – so that’s 30 in total.
Aim to build up to 15 strokes each in the first week and then 20 stokes.
For more advance or fit people, ideally you will do 100 strokes each way or a total of 10 minutes each way if you want to be “prime”
Remember always to look upwards! In that way the benefits are many more… for instance, that will facilitate the blood circulation to your brain and also will help your neck
Make sure that your arm movement is smooth to avoid any strains or injuries.
This is an excellent ‘wake up and go’ exercise for the morning. It will increase your heart rate, exercise the upper body and open up your lungs.
Simply, can be done anywhere and by anyone.
