With the Christmas period, comes a shut down of most group based training - Masters swimming is no different.

So with that in mind, many swimmers are asking their coaches for sessions to do while the group is not running, and if you have forgotten to ask for a few sessions, you might be left wondering what to do in the pool.

Well I have some good news for you (and for me too).

In my daily recon around the World Wide Web, I stumbled upon a pretty amazing resource I would like to share with you all.

The West Side Swim club is a Swim club based out of Sudbury, Massachusetts, and one of the cool resources they have on their site is a Workout Database.

This database has almost 1 200 (yes 1 200) workouts for everything that is swimming, from the books of one of their Coaches, Nate McBride.

The kicker - the database is FREE.


Just follow the prompts, and get an almost custom made swimming workout - every time
(or at least 1 134 of them).

Get yourself a few swim sessions, and hold onto that hard earned fitness over the festive season.
