Start Here & Learn Swimming,shlok.info tips on developing the right mindset to learn to swim.
1. Keep Your Goggles On
Learn to keep your goggles over your eyes for at least an hour without removing. Aswimming workoutoften includes a warm up, a main set, then kick or pull and finishing with a warm down. After each set, they tend to put their goggles on their forehead and reset their goggles on the next set. A long distance race does not allow for this luxury. Get used to keeping your goggles on.
2. Practice Sighting
In order to increase your ability to sight in an open water race or triathlon,practice sightingin the pool. On every fourth lap, throw in a few sightings while swimming across the pool. Look up two to three times and try to keep a streamlined position by not dropping your hips and legs. Attempt to look up in one smooth motion within your arm cycle. If you want feedback on technique, ask your coach or lane mates to check out your sighting technique and give you some constructive criticism. Its important to continually improve this part of your swimming technique. If you sight once every 25 yards in a full Ironman triathlon, that is 169 sightings during the swim.
3. Practice Pulling Straight Back
As your hands enter the water, your fingertips (with a flat palm) should immediately begin pointing straight down. Focus on pulling straight back as you roll your shoulder or take a breath. Your hands should not cross over your center line at any point in the stroke.
4. Purchase Fins
If you have a cross over kick, purchase a pair of fins and focus on kicking efficiently without crossing one foot over the other. Fins will also help increase your ankle flexibility.
5. Purchase a Swimmers Snorkel
When practicing with a swimmers snorkel, you can concentrate on your arm stroke and body rotation more easily. Competitive swimmers use this type of equipment all the time. So should you.
