I wonder if anyone has really tested how effective this is. I mean by how much do you improve flotation or reduce drag due to holding your breath. I suspect this is just one pf things that get passed...

This is so sad.
I log-in here once in a blue moon, but I remember Laura from back when I posted on a daily basis.

A snorkel is OK to use, since it doesn't imprint any bad habits. The reason TI swimmers don't like kickboards is that it imprints a flat body position. The kickboard is basically good at allowing you...
