My dryland program started last fall with the dryland program I read in Janet Evans Total Swimming book, then "The Complete Conditioning for Swimming" (Salo/Riewald) book. I learned more from reading Ande and Chris's blogs, then trying the Lezak program, (Also many other blogs that mention some form of dryland training) Thus far, my routine is;
The Plan is 3x a week, trying to stay with M-W-F...

After each rep, I do various Medicine Ball throw downs, russian twist, and flexibility exercises.
I also do various stability ball exercises and some pilates routines to stretch after workouts at home.
Its been a challenge to fit in how much weigh/dryland I can handle with the swim workouts.
