I am glad to say that I have come full circle from all kinds of different lifting back to Crossfit.

What is a good substitute for swimming that can be done on dry land in the gym.

Thank you,

Rory Singer

Are you the SBG Singer? If so I love the clinch tape. I use exer-tubes to simulate swimming motions, it works better on a rowing type motion.
Hope this helps.

right now I am not formally studying with an instructor. sixteen years of boxing, jkd, thai boxing and the last 5 years concentrating on grappling. Living in a small town where there is no interest in fight training I grab partners when I can. I do try to catch seminars and I get to practise a lot at work when I am on patrol.

Rory, Adam, welcome back.

I don't think we can find a better stand in for swimming than rowing. The concept II rower is an amazing secret weapon in forging gladiators.

Good to see you around,

Coach

You need to get a Concept II Rower. How many indoor, whole body, crushing cardiorespiratory movements do you get a chance at?

yeah, my gym kinda sucks i guess. instead of deciding what color to paint the freaking walls that week (i swear they change weekly) and installing dvd players on the stairclimbers and treadmills, they should get a freaking rowing machine!

unfortunately i an under contract for a year and have to deal with it fot now. (when i joined i was doing the "standard" lifting routine to gain a little mass and get stronger for climbing) i'm just trying to find a substitute for the exercises or facilities that i don't have access to! i can pretty much duplicate most other exercises easily, and even though i'm new to actually following crossfit workouts i always get strange looks from other people at the gym!

coach,

so i took your advice about the concept II rower. i cancelled my membership at the gym i was at because they sucked at accomodating crossfit workouts, and joined my locacl YMCA. they have a everything my other gym had, plus they have a pool, and a concept II rower! and i'm only paying 1/4 of what i was paying before!
