Hip Joint Mechanics and Using Your Core While Swimming
The Psoas is a great muscle to tap into while swimming. However, it is
often found in "hammock" action and not engaged. Learn how to tap into
using a visualization for the mechanics of your hip joint to turn on
your psoas and lower abdomen. In turn, this allows your body to be in
a straight line (decreasing drag and "zig-zagging") and maximize the
amount of force you can put on your arms during your pull. While this
usually adds work where there was none, it decreases the amount of
tension in your shoulders....and increases the likelihood of having a
six-pack (who doesn't want some of that!?). Swimming is a whole body
sport and this workshop will focus on tapping into the Core and
learning how to incorporate this powerhouse section of your body.
