Triathlon Essentials: Swim...Your Core

Improving core strength is a fundamental element to improving your swim time in a triathlon. A strong core keeps your body long, narrow and streamlined, ready to knife through the water. A conditioned core is also crucial to optimizing energy when rolling your body from side to side, as opposed to staying flat on the surface.

Check out this video to give you some ideas on how you can improve your core to increase swimming efficiency. Don’t forget to sign up here for one of ITU’s iconic swims like Mission Beach of San Diego or navigating the cooler waters of Europe while sighting the Kitzbuehel Alps.
