Sorry, I just couldn't get through every reply in the thread but I didn't read anyone mentioning the obvious to me. But then again, I may have missed it. Your upper body is going to follow where...

Sherry,
You mentioned in your first post that before TI you were able to breathe better. What changed? Once a swimmer learns to exhale all the air out into the water, its pretty much something you...

Hi,
Work on balance drills a bit, then try the catch up drill. That will help keep your hand higher in the water to help stabilize your body while breathing. Once your elbows drop that soon in the...

Hi, I agree that being more relaxed has all great side effects in the water. I can attest to this fact when I was swimming many, many pool laps with good results and no exhaustion. Then I jumped...

Hi, I agree with the others, I think your head is a bit low. There's very little bow wave to create that pocket of air. It sure seems you have great balance, good bouyancy. I can't imagine...

Pushing Down on the Water

Hi, It seems that your right hand and arm (I assime your left also) are pushing down on the water throughout your 50m swim. That causes drag and lifts your chest. Watch Terry or other youtube...

Packed Full of Data

I've had my 910XT for about a month now. I don't have an older model to compare it with but I can't imagine anything can compare. I've found accurate SR and lap counts so far. And the GPS works...

No Way

Hi,

I've posted my experience many times on this forum. Its my firm opinion that any early exhaustion is ONLY being caused by CO2 build-up and the oxygen debt that quickly follows. You must find a...

Hi, I have a different take on the things to work on. In my experience, when I was out of breath, I hadn't gotten to the point of understanding the whole breathing technique. A little bit lower...

Flip Video

Hi, I bought a Flip video camera with underwater case...total price of $120.00
on eBay. It works super in the outdoor lap pool and almost as good under the indoor lighting. I can get about 20...

I couldn't get to the middle of the pool 9 months ago, so take my opinions as just an offering. After getting more comfortable in the water I slowly worked my way up to getting across the pool...a...

Gar,
Try looking just a couple yards in front of you. That'll lift your head. Unfortunately that'll also sink your hips and legs slightly, causing more drag. But as I was working on breathing I...

I'm a new swimmer also. I had the same problem for 5 or so months. I know only what solved my problem. Better balance in the water and finding the best and most rythym when breathing. I can't...

Russellw, I couldn't thrash my way to half a lap 6 months ago. Then I studied TI and viewed many other videos on how to swim front crawl. When I finally got it enough to stroke somewhat proper, I...

Six months ago, I couldn't move halfway down the lane. I decided to really study the TI technique very closely and also viewed all other videos, like you have, that were available on youtube. ...

Breathing

Hi Joel, I'm new to swimming too and recently had a breakthrough with breathing. In my mind your endurance isn't the issue. I can't seem to get past the fact that you, I and many others can run...

Breathing - Part 2

I posted some of my thoughts last night. This morning when I got into the pool, I concentrated on "my way" of breathing so I could post another note. Since I'm a work in progress also, by no means...

Breathing

Hi Tstick,
A few weeks ago I posted a similar thread about my breathing problem. I had a hard time understanding how I could run and bike and pound out mile after mile, but yet couldn't swim up on...

Agree

In my day to day life, I'm incredibly patient, but not with swimming I guess. Much of what everyone has suggested in the thread holds true for me. Since I'm kind of one of those guys that'll plow...

Thanks Borate. I've been trying to exhale naturally (smoothly) since day 1, but maybe just my inexperience is keeping from doing so. Theres many times I'm shy of 50M and already struggling. When I...

Forceful Exhalation

I'm hoping all the swimmers who have no issues with breathing can help me out. First off, I've only begun swimming 9 weeks ago. I'm progressing pretty well I think and actually look pretty good in...

Co2

Alex...I have a similar problem. But I've come to the same conclusion that Coach Kevin hit on....CO2 buildup. It really hit home when I was next to a guy just barely jogging and sometimes walking...

Too Much Thought Gets in the Way

Eight weeks ago I swore I was the one person that couldn't float. A friend of mine laughed his butt off as I slapped the surface of the water hoping to move forward. I bought the TI DVD and started...
