Daily Swim Workout #5: Strength

Another day another swim workout. Today’s focus is on strength. Use a pair of paddles like the Finis Agility Paddles to ensure you’re not cheating with your stroke form. The great thing about the Finis paddles is there’s no straps, so the only way to keep them on your hand is to pull properly in the water.
