Build speed through sculling

Build speed through sculling

There is one technique that I rely on more than anything else when teaching swimmers the mechanics of swimming. It's sculling. Most sessions will have at least a few lengths of sculling, whether it's part of a warm-up, cool down or even part of the main set. Learning how your body moves, manipulates, and feels in the water is a crucial part of increasing both your speed and efficiency in the water. 

Work towards a balanced Freestyle

Learning to be a balanced swimmer can be a lifelong task. Balance will not only help you in the water but help you build stability and strength outside of the water as well. Having great Freestyle is based on a solid body line, but sometimes swimmers mask their instabilities in the water by using their arms or legs to support them.

Introducing the 3-peak Backstroke

Introducing the 3-peak Backstroke

Backstroke is one of the more popular strokes to train in. It's similarities to Freestyle allow swimmers to cover significant distances at a greater speed. The ease of breathing attracts a lot of new swimmers to this particular stroke since you always have your face out of the water. However, did you know that not all backstroke is the same? I would like to introduce you to 3-peak Backstroke.
