Bench Busters 10.0

Matt Gosling, South Lincs Competitive Swim Club

I delivered this land-based set to our senior and junior swimmers. As an ex-military guy we used this a lot during our circuit sessions and it was a lot more intense so i dosed it down a little for the kids.

I paired the senior swimmers with a more junior swimmer to promote leadership and responsibility.

I place a standard gym bench across the middle of the floor and place the senior swimmer one side and the junior on the other side facing each other.

While one did the exercise the other counted,assisted and encouraged and it worked excellently. It aided leadership, responsibility, confidence, teamwork and in general.
