Pool Workouts for Competitive Athletes

athletes

Take your marathon, triathlon or performance training to a new level. That’s what Alberto Salazar and the Oregon Project did when they integrated HydroWorx fitness pool workouts into their training regimen. Pool workouts for athletes allow for training in a high-resistance, low-impact environment. Swimming and running are critical aspects of training for many competitive athletes; and now they can be done without increasing risk of injury.

A HydroWorx exercise pool can also provide a supplemental training routine while you recover from injury or a muscle strain. During pool training for athletes, the buoyancy of water allows you to continue running on the underwater treadmill or strength building exercises against the resistance jets. This enables you to maintain your fitness level even when you are injured or your muscles are fatigued.

After a hard workout, treat yourself to a deep penetrating massage to decrease lactic acid build-up in overworked muscles. This is a great feature for overall pain management and recovery enhancement.
