Yes Tony. Let us know what you find.

My experience is if I try hard (i.e, spearing harder), I can manage SPL of 17-18 in a 25 yard pool. However if I make less effort, my SPL increases to 19-20, but...

Tony,

Exertion level can be different at the same tempo. If you stretch harder or pull harder, you need more air. So try this: say at 1.25s, try to use effort as minimum as possible. After 100m,...

Peter,

Can you explain a little bit how you do 2 beat kick in backstroke? How do hands and legs coordinate? I can do 2 beat kick in freestyle, but want to learn for backstroke too.

Thanks!

Hi Paul,

You can get the 10 lessons perpetual motion DVD for $30+ at Amazon. It helped me a lot.

I think 1.5 hours, 2 days/week is good enough. As long as you keep doing it, you should see results...

As Alex-SG said, you just...

Thanks Terry! I will continue to work on my technique. I feel my left side kick is not as effective and left hand entry generates more splashes and noise. I hope some day I will be able to swim in...

I testify: little stamina needed

Today, I completed 1000 yards nonstop. Three months ago, I could not swim several yards. I sit all day at my work as a data analyst. I do not run or bike because I don't have much stamina. How will...

I started swimming around the same time as you did. What I do is to exhale more forcefully as I surface (This is what Terry said in his perpetual swim in 10 lessons DVD). However, the problem is if...

I am a 5'5 middle aged woman.
I can cross 25 yard pool in 19-20 strokes. 2 beat kick helps me a lot since I don't feel very tired any more.
