Learn Dryland Chest Exercises!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Sunday, May 1, 2016

The chest is an essential part of the body to work on for the developing swimmer. Larry Stoegbauer, assistant coach at New Trier (Illinois) High School, shows you different variations for the common push-up in this video that will strengthen your athletes’ chests for competition.

Chest Exercises

Drill Summary: For the common push-up, Coach Stoegbauer wants his athletes to maintain a straight back and keep their head up. Wider hands equals working the chest more, while narrower hands will target the triceps. An incline push-up (feet on a bench) will hit the upper pecs, while a clapping push-up is more challenging and rewarding. Once athletes have done all types of push-ups, they can complete dips, which work the lower chest. While dipping, keeping your eyes down will ensure the drill focuses on the chest area.

Create Faster Swimmers with this Strength Drill!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Sunday, June 1, 2014

Larry Stoegbauer, a highly successful swimming strength coach, shows you an effective drill to reinforce the swimmer’s pattern for swimming at his or her faster than normal swim speed. The overspeed training technique shown in this segment creates overspeed, and not assisted swimming.

Overspeed Drafting Drill

Stoegbauer uses two swimmers for this drill with one attached to the cord as the “rabbit” who sets the pace and the other swimmer who is in overspeed training. The “rabbit” is in the water at the far end of the pool with the elastic cord fully stretched while the swimmer is in start position on the deck above. On the coach’s command, the “rabbit” leaves the wall and is pulled across the pool swimming freestyle while the training swimmer dives in and drafts slightly behind the “rabbit,” swimming in the wake at a speed faster than normal.

Build Your Swimmers’ Strength and Power!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Tuesday, April 1, 2014

Larry Stoegbauer, the strength coach for swimmers at New Trier High School in Winnetka, Illinois, has put together a drill that allows the coach and the swimmer to measure the progress and improvement in building strength and power for swimming.

The Weight Strap Drill

The swimmer places a belt around his or her waist connected to a strap approximately the length of the pool with a bar bell weight of between 10 to 95 lbs. attached. The weight is placed in the deep end of the pool and the strap is curled around a backstroke start handle and out to the swimmer. The swimmer then sprints to the other end of the pool towing the weight across the pool bottom to the starting block. As the swimmer gains strength, the weight is increased.
