Many people undergo training in swimming to be able to cover long distances or personal targets they have set for themselves.
People also train for the 1500-meter swim because it is the first segment of an Olympic-distance triathlon.
The 1500-meter swim is easy to accomplish with some physical training. You only need proper swimming technique to get good results.
Here are some tricks you can use to improve your technique and endurance, starting right now:
- Do a 10- or 15-minute warmup out of the water. Move all the joints of your body and stretch your muscles thoroughly.
- Begin your session with 200 meters of easy swimming in the forward crawl or breaststroke. Go at an easy pace because you’re already warmed up.
- Rest for 2 minutes before you get into the core of your session.
- Next, complete 3 sets of 300 meters in the forward crawl at a constant speed. In the first set, swim at 60% of your maximum speed; in the second set, at 70%; and in the last set, at 75%. Rest for 2 minutes between each set.
- Swim for 100 meters in the forward crawl or breaststroke to loosen up your muscles.
- Finally, stretch your muscles again, especially the legs, upper and lower back, and shoulders.
By the end of the session, you will have completed one hour of basic training, swimming a total of 1200 meters in approximately 30 to 35 minutes.
And it won’t be long before you nail all 1500 meters!
