What would efficiency be for you?

What would efficiency be for you? What result do you want? Better feeling of the water? More length per stroke? Less strokes per length? Faster from A to B i.e. from one wall to the other? More body...

Re: Freestyle > weight shift

Would not say so, as you "rotate" automatically when you reach forward-downward before the catch. The movement is IMO synchronous not one after another. But the forward drive starts in the core - the...

Re: TI swimmers in Germany

Servus Petra,

ich war letztens mal in Regensburg.
Ihr habt ein super 50m-Hallenbad dort, das Westbad. Schwimmst du dort?

Cheers. janedoemuc

Re: Shoulder with painful Clicking/ cracking

Do you cross over in front of you (your hands at hand entry) or under your body while swimming?

Did you try to warm up with some dryland exercises (targeted to loosen your shoulders) before...

Re: need SPL conversion table

Gern geschehen ;o) That is really funny, because I swim in the "Freibad Unterhaching", too from time to time. How long do you stay in the area of Munich? Perhaps we already ran into each other...

As Nick already pointed it out: Don't try hard - try easy and relaxed.

Re: Goggles, glare, and sighting

Do you use goggles with tinted or metallized glasses? That should reduce the glare. It helps also to breathe "to the other side of the sun".

When the googles are new they have some sort of surface...

Re: Feedback on my swim technique

Your overall direction seems to me down instead of ahead. IMO your sending all your energy to the ground instead in your swimming direction (ahead) where you want to go.

Your pull seems to starts...

Re: need SPL conversion table

You can IMO calculate the distance per stroke of the 25 yard list. Calculate the distance per stroke you actually take on your 50m and compare. Then you know where you stand. Consider always an...

Re: TI swimmers in Germany

Hi Petra,

pleasure to make your acquaintance. Regensburg is Ironman-city now ;o)

I learned freestyle/front crawl properly with TI in 2004 and the other strokes soon after, too.

I swim in several...

How to find a recovery stroke?

I think it is more a mental game. I think that there is no big difference between 30 minutes swimming or 45 minutes or 90 minutes or 4 hours. If you would not have the choice to stop I bet you both...

You can certainly decrease your stroke rate by balancing your body in the water, streamlining at every stroke, being relaxed with activated muscels, have a well timed kick with body rotation and...

How to Stop your Feet Sinking

Re: Expectations with balancing

Swimming is IMO not a question of the body form but more a question if you are aware what you are doing with your body in the water and feel what the water is doing with you and respond accordingly...

Body Roll - Finding your edge

I would not even focus on the "roll", but on the lengthening of your whole body. Then your perfect rotation comes IMO automatically.

Breathing and propulsion are connected, because an improper...

Unfortunately your efficiency decreases a bit...

You can simply use a calculator to check your distance per stroke and hence your efficiency:

25m w 15 s = 1,67m/s
25m w 17 s = 1,47m/s
50m w 38 s = 1,32m/s
50m w 40 s = 1,25m/s

I think that it is...

Wetsuit advice

"The Frog" already said it: The wetsuit needs to fit you - not the person who reviewed it. You will find out if a wetsuit fits you or not only by testing it by yourself - not by reading.

Re: Canít find the air during switch drills

Are you "aiming" and "thinking" DOWN or AHEAD? I think, if you think "down" you will aim "down" and your body will follow in that direction. I would suggest you try your switch drill with thinking...

Re: Which SPL to use with TT?

If you want to improve your speed, I think you should focus 1. on time per distance and 2. on SPL or 3. play the old good swim-golf - it is an efficiency game.

A low stroke rate (or low number of...

Re: Olympic Open water Achievable?

It is achievable but you will make the most and fastest progress if you take lessons with a coach - preferably a TI coach.

You need to learn right from wrong first before you can improve your...
