Illustration of the Trunk Roll - Beginner
trying this for the first time I recommend using a soft ball on an
exercise mat because at the end of your movement your base of support
is quite narrow.|
This exercise challenges your balance and proprioception. An effective trunk roll is necessary for swimming efficiently. Other strengthening exercises one should encorporate into a good swim program are as follows:
Alternate shoulder extension
Alternate arm/leg raise
Look at the ceiling
Repeat this ball exercise 10 times.
Repeat this ball exercise 15 times.
Repeat this ball exercise 30 times.
