The structure and content of training vary depending on season and climatic conditions. However, each lesson includes, as a rule, warm-up, physical training, swimming and warming exercises. In 60-minute lesson, the relation between them is 40: 10: 10. This means that 40 minutes is spent on warm-up and physical training (this also may enter and swim in a pool with heated water), 10 minutes to specialized training and swimming in the icy water, 10 minutes for warming exercises (including re swimming in heated water).

If in a speedo warm up is not possible, it is necessary to wear light tracksuit and continue physical training until you feel heat in the whole body.

Sometimes on television you can see how famously in the frosty air warm up “walrus”, using the bar, barbell, kettlebells, tires, and other projectiles. It is in any case can not be recommended. Occupations that require sudden movements can lead to sprains, torn ligaments and other injuries. Easy running, ball games and other exercises that can captivate engaged, are more suitable. The purpose of the warm up in the cold — to warm up, lift your mood, gain more internal heat, but not to pump up muscles.

Then for 25 minutes engaged in the gym (gymnastics and strength exercises, outdoor games with the use of a variety of sports equipment and inventory). The second group (20 percent) conducts classes as follows: 10 minutes —Jogging outdoors, 20 minutes exercise on the equipment and the carpets in the gym, 10 minutes of swimming in heated water. The third group (15 percent) is engaged only in the gym, and the fourth (15 percent) – only pool with heated water. The remaining 10 percent involved use other combinations of exercises (e.g., running outdoors and swimming in warm water or going to the gym and swimming in warm water).

Warm-up and physical conditioning over all groups at the same time, 40 minutes after the start of classes, then the groups are constructed and organized manner are sent to the hole for swimming in the icy water . After that a dip in the pool for 10 minutes and cool shower. At the end of the buffet Breakfast and departure to work. Once a week, the section conducts classes on the reservoir with the use of sauna (classes continue 90 minutes).

Organizational sessions also can be built in different ways. Some teams warm-up is carried out all together, and performing the same exercises, and physical training are divided into groups; in others, carried out by groups all activities from beginning to end.

Duration, methods of training and the nature of the exercises should be adjusted depending on specific conditions: temperature and humidity, wind, presence, precipitation, etc. Under adverse conditions, classes may be reduced over time; in this case, to achieve the goal needs to be increased their intensity.

During the course, swimming in the icy water of the inevitable interruptions. After an interruption of one month stay in the water should be reduced twice. If classes were suspended for more than two months, come out strong from the beginning. When, for whatever reason, have to take a break in winter swimming, it is useful at this time to take a cold or a cold shower, air and water baths, Jogging barefoot in the snow, pour water or well water. Such procedures will help maintain the necessary tone and quickly “get into shape” with the resumption of classes winter swimming.
