The key to swimming better is broken down into basic principles. To increase the distance of your swim it is important to focus on saving energy. Efficient movement toward this goal can be learned.
Rather than breaking down each piece of a particular stroke it is suggested that this activity should be approached in a holistic manner, focusing on integration of components rather than deconstructing each component.
Another thing to recall when trying to improve swimming techniques is to avoid instinctual struggle behaviors in the water. Steady pacing and a reduction of drag or friction are practices that will assist in improving the quality of your swimming performance.
Following many of these techniques any person at any age is sure to increase their performance.
- A swimmer cannot reach his maximum potential without exercise.
- Making smarter choices can sometimes be more important than maximizing effort.
- Maximizing the efficiency of your stroke can allow you to swim faster, easier.
