I use kettlebells as well--great workout. I took a one-hour lesson from a kettlebell coach to learn all of the basic swings and jerks. It really gets your cardiovascular going, and it's more of a...

Discombobulated in Balto.

Hi Dave:

It's the classic case of forgetting what I learned. 'Am I doing this right?' and 'What can I expect to see' in terms of progress?

I'm getting in 3x week. I went through the Easy...

I agree.$40 is a bit steep. I have a couple of some freestyle swimmers. For me I derive a GREAT deal or learning from watching people with good form. That's why I like these videos. Even for...

:-) My POSE for them is swimming 25m in 12 strokes or less. I haven't gotten there yet so maybe that's why they ignore me.

I like GoSwim (I've gotten some good ideas on drills) but it seems more geared toward 'pool rats' and competitive swimmers. And it seems that he makes money by marketing DVDs of eminent competitve...

Pose Method vs. TI?

I read the info on the site since it just happened to pique my interest. The prose on the site is kind of dense and hard to understand, so such pretense can sound pretty scientific sometimes. I...

Pose Method vs. TI?

I've been working at the Pose Method for running. I also noticed that Pose has a swimming method. The Pose technique seems very 'scientific' to me vs. TI, which is more of an art.

Has anyone tried...

After the TI Clinic-what's next?

I took a TI clinic about a month ago but I'm feeling a bit 'discombulated' on what to do when I get to the pool.

Work on this drill or that drill? How far, how much time?

Does anyone out there...

Baby shampoo works pretty nicely. And so do spitting in it and then dunking it in the water (at least for me).

Which begs the question: Is it better to exhale through the nose or the mouth? I 'blow bubbles' through my mouth and don't really blow through my nose.

That's what I counted when I was watching him. Nice, high elbows, very relaxed and gliding. He's a pretty regular guy. He talks to you if you talk to him. Although last time he was there he had...

My SPL does goes up with my breathing every other stroke as well. With 4 strokes/breathe it's lower by a couple of strokes. But that may get better with practice -- not sure.

BTW, I saw Michael...

Thanks for the validation. I've come to the conclusion that that's the way I have to do it. As I get more comfortable (I'm still something of a beginner) I can standardize it.

Breathe when I feel like it?

Hello there:

I've found that I'm still inconsistent with my breathing. Sometimes I'll breath every 4th stroke but I find that I am 'gassed' pretty quickly if I try to stay with this cadence.

So,...

Start at the back

Ned, why do you need to be in the front? Start outside and in the back. A tri is a race against yourself, not necessarily other people.

With people beating up on you you'll never be able to focus...
