Are you breathing the right way?
Seems like we, as land mammals, should know how to do this instinctually, but unfortunately, that’s not the case.
So many factors affect our breathing on land, let alone doing it well while swimming.
This single skill can affect everything you do in the water.
If we’re breathing effectively while we swim, we can perform the necessary movements to swim effectively.
It’s important to breathe while swimming as similar as you do on land.
There should be no breath-holding.
When your face goes underwater, aim to blow bubbles out of your nose for 3 seconds, calmly.
Inhaling through your mouth and exhaling through your nose, most of the time, is key to a calm, efficient breathing pattern and swimming success.
Getting a swim video analysis is the best way to witness your kick inefficiencies and learn to correct them.
Come learn how to kick correctly at my upcoming Swim Essentials Clinic for video analysis and 12 hours of coached swim training in the pool, open water, and online.
