Have you just started swimming or do you notice that your fitness is not what it should be? Be sure to read this article with tips that can help you.
Most people have a hard time sticking to a routine, but this is important to practice the sport on a regular basis.
It is best to swim 2-3 times weekly for an hour or more.
Concentrate on your breathing
Your breathing is important while swimming, especially if you don’t want to be exhausted too quickly by poor breathing technique. This only applies in the water of course, once you are out of the water you no longer have to pay attention to this.
Regardless of your technique or execution of the movements, your breathing must always be tuned to the movements of your limbs. If you have not yet mastered the “crawl”, it is best to breathe every 3 strokes and never on the same side. Once you’ve mastered the technique, breathe every 5 movements so you don’t get exhausted as quickly.
At the breaststroke you breathe the moment you stretch your arms in front of you.
With good breathing you are less likely to be exhausted, you will float better and you improve your balance and position.
