This workout from coach Sara McLarty is designed as a swim/strength workout for when you don’t have access to a pool—which is most of us in this crazy time. It can be designed to take you between 15-30 minutes to complete (based on how many reps you choose).
See the workout details and then watch coach Sara demonstrate the entire workout in the video from Swim Like a Pro below.
