Strength Training for Swimmers - Coach Coley Stickels Indiana University
We were honored to host Coach Coley Stickels of the Indiana University Men's and Women's swimming program, featuring some of the best athletes in the world at our training facility in Islamorada, Florida Keys; Amanda Kendall, Margo Geer, Zane Grothe, Isabella Arcilla and Nikola Obravac. In 2000, Race Club strength coach Tim Mclellan, swim coach Mike Bottom and Olympic champion Gary Hall Jr. began to implement Mixed Martial Arts and Boxing Techniques into their swim training program. Since incorporating boxing, breathing techniques, stretch chord, resistance exercises, and cold water therapy, other great strength coaches, such as Keenan Robinson (Michael Phelps) and Brian McKenzie (Laird Hamilton), have developed similar training techniques to those that Coley Stickels and his I.U. athletes demonstrate in these amazing videos. This week, we release the Boxing Warmup exercises that Coach Coley Stickels uses for his strength training warmup.
