The ‘daily dryland’: Ideas to stay active while at home-week 5

By Reach for the Wall Staff


Today’s workout comes from Delta Aquatics & is called the ‘Minute Master’. One cycle through will give you 16 minutes of active work & 2 minutes of rest. As suggested 2 times through should be enough for your day…Good Luck!!

For all the coaches out there, an interesting opportunity is available tonight @7pm. Join Joe Auer and Sid Cassidy, as they host a Facebook live event with several coaches from the Florida LSC as well as University of Florida strength coach, Matt Delancey to talk about dryland training.

“Join the most awesome Sid Cassidy, Florida Gators strength coach Matt DeLancey, MySwimPro’s Fares Ksebati, Florida Swim School’s Kara Cassidy and many other coaches around the country. We will be discussing the mental issues (and coping) with this virus, incredible dryland training, the 1st annual online World Swim Gala, and teaching little ones during this crazy time. Let’s have some fun and enjoy the hour!”

Today’s offerings from Fitter and Faster:


(Wednesday, April 15 @ 3:00 PM EST)

Suggested audience: Coaches, Parents, and Business Leaders in Swimming

Managing Director of Sport Development for USA Swimming Joel Shinofield, Olympic Gold Medalist and Co-Founder of SwimSwam Mel Stewart, and Founder of Fitter and Faster Swim Camps David Arluck

Three leaders in the sport will ask questions regarding what “returning to swimming” could look like when it happens… and offer suggestions on how teams and families can prepare for the unexpected.

  • Will pools be open?
  • Will they have enough staff such as lifeguards for seasonal outdoor pools?
  • Will there be a summer league season across the USA?
  • What are factors that can keep a summer league season from happening… and what can possibly make the season happen?
  • Will practice sizes be limited?
  • Will there be swim meets?
  • Will age group swimmers catch up to where they were?

This is an unpredictable environment, but there could be ways for all of us to plan for different scenarios so that we can return to the sport and get the most out of the time we are able to get.
