I have some skepticism here when I hear or see these kind of bizarre explanations - like that given by the funny guy in the video or that what sclim quoted.

My take is very simply this: constricting...

confusion - need some enlightenment

I understand that this is about swimming too fast at a low SPL (or long DPS), both of it, at the same time.

Can someone help me with what is meant by 'too fast' and what is meant by 'low SPL' in...

Yes, sure, I understand your point.
What I wanted to say is that although that 'maintaining the same SPL' at higher rates does give you the idea of some underlying consistency in fact this is...

Danny,

does this question 'why does it hurt to swim too fast at low SPL' mean that it hurts when swimming fast with a low SPL but not when swimming fast with a high SPL?

Hi doc,


I am still wondering whether this qualifies as solace for us lonely wolves out there... :D



Would you mind expounding that ?

Hi Werner,

My shoulders are ok, ... still don't have much time for swimming, unfortunately.



If we do a movement at a fairly slow and 'controlled' speed, everything is quite easy. We can break the...

Sometimes, after swimming extensively I felt my shoulders. But most of the time - and that already during the swim - I felt a general tiredness but no specific sore muscles or muscle groups.

If you have a 6 m push-off then the remaining length in a 25 m pool is 19 m while it is 44 m in the 50 m pool.
44 / 19 = 2.3

So in fact in the 50 m pool you have to swim a longer distance... exactly...

Well, my very personal opinion is that is is good to spear as deep as possible - as long as it doesn't drag your head down. I don't see any advantage in this bobbing up and down motion, on the...

Thanks for your comments, folks, thats very helpful.

tomoy, I don't think focusing on catch/pull timing isn't doing much, but that while focusing on it it didn't show immediate results.

Another question...

I spent the last weeks working hard - I didn't have too much time for the pool, but spent the time working on catch/pull timing in my hometown 50m pool. It didn't seem to work out, my SPL was...

I am quite sure from the context that the elbow of the spearing arm - which is about to catch and pull - is meant here. But I have to admit that I don't really get the point. When your arm is already...

I am not so sure whether those washboard/six pack abs are really something that should be worked for. It might well be that six-pack abs mainly are chronically shortened muscles. When the abs relax...

I'll just duplicate that post, and replace the 5'3" with 5'10 5/64 and the 36-50 with 28-50.

A question about timing (again) ...

I tried to swim with faster stroke rates after having spent a lot of time at appr. 1.4 s per stroke for imprinting good stroke habits.

I did a set with the TT, startet at 1.10 (appr. 54 str/min) and...

Are you saying that the catch itself creates drag, or is the drag a by-product of...

Let's be a bit mean: first one vigorously propagates that overgliding is devil's own work, and then one states that 'At some point 48% of all swim guides sold were OGs.'
