I've spent a happy summer swimming most nights in the sea. I'm now back in the pool and finding breathing hard. My head is just not clearing enough to complete the breath. I understand this is...

Thanks for those tips. I watched the videos and read the posts. I was at the pool last night and it started to click. It only fell out of sync a few times near the end I was able to correct it. I...

Easy Freestyle

Hey

Thanks for that. You're right. I was watching the earlier DVD. I've just watched the clips of Easy Freestyle and this has the overlaid axis lines. It seems a lot more indepth. I've just ordered...

Hi

Has anybody used these? Do they help with TI technique or do they prevent the slight bend for the initial catch?

I still swim in the sea over the winter (I live in Ireland). It is quite cold but I use a wetsuit (3mm). It is different buoyancy to swimming in the pool but this is just the payoff for swimming free...

Thanks for that. I'm going to try that tonight. So when I'm going to breath to the right my left lead arm should be further out to to the left. Is that correct.
