That was the goal and we're excited to hear many folks having great results and feedback. Your chest lifts upward through the water's surface with every stroke, forcing your shoulders and arms to pull hard underwater toward your hips.
I am not that great a swimmer. Congrats to these girls in Greenville for crushing the downtown 5k.

Hip flexors are used to maintain a compact and steady kick. And O-my-Christ, yes, it's possible to be a really great swimmer and weak at pull ups. Try swimming some "water polo" for 25 at a time.

When you find yourself having to hop on to get miles in..... If you must watch TV, focus on the monitor on your treadmill. Nothing gives us more joy than seeing you succeed, push yourself beyond your "pre" conceived limits and do it all with smiles!Swimming for Bodybuilding Gains?
Make sure you keep your shoulders and back and down while lowering yourself. That's right. Follow these rules for each of the exercises below. The most common way this exercise is performed by finding a bar that is high enough for you to reach with your feet dangling, grab bar and begin pulling up.

You should work the major arm and leg muscles, plus the hip, gluteal, lumbar and abdominal muscles because they all assist in rotating and stabilizing your body in the water. Re-read the first post - says Meters - sub 48 for 100 meters is world class. Flipturns, especially in events like the mile, can be the make or break of a swimmer.
I do suspect pullups help to some amount, since I can certainly feel similar movements while swimming. This can be performed by laying on a bench and starting with a bar above your chest, then slowly bringing it down to your chest and back up again. You will flex and use these muscles from point of water entry all the way until your hand is just past your chest, at which point your pull becomes dominated by your tricep. Watching the big screen.
