Swimmers must be aware of the laws of resistance, propulsion, and inertia if they are to be fast and efficient in the water. Click HERE for an excellent visual reminder of what coaches teach swimmers every day, all the time.
Many freestylers swim with heads too high. In a crowded swimming pool, swimmers often look forward, hoping to avoid a collision with one of their teammates. These defensive swimming techniques create a bad habit that slows them down. In this Race Club Swimisode, world record holder and Olympic champ Roland Schoemanand Lexie Kelly show how head elevation slows their swimming techniques. Japanese champion, Junya Koga, swims freestyle the way we teach swimmers–effortlessly with his head in the dynamic swimming position.
