If I had one, my new year's resolution would be to train spirit, mind, and body for the 400IM, which is just a continuation of what I've been doing. So maybe my resolution should be to train better. heh

BTW, today is the anniversary of my first swim lesson.

1. to set reasonable and attainable goals

2. to exceed these goals

3. to build ability and confidence based on experience from each previous swim through learning better relaxing and balancing techniques and skills.

Congratulations on your first year Shuumai. may you journey become even more enjoyable.

Mike

My new year's resolution about swimming is to reduce my stroke count from 36 in 25 meters to 26, a big progress for me.

Hi Shinji, I am really amazed at how you maintained your super horizontal position at almost zero speed in the supreman glide video. I read your post about using lower abdominal muscle. Did you do some special muscle exercise to achieve this, or just do this superman glide again and again?

One of my new year resolutions is to watch the 12 stroke video one hundred more times. Well, this is an easy one :)

Repetition and fine tuning is very important. It might be a good idea to use a pull buoy to memorize the correct position by your body. I used to use a balance ball to train my core muscles.

When I tried prone balance (Superman Glide) first time, I had to repeat it four times to cross 25 yards. Since then, it might be true my core muscles got trained, but I think my skill contributes to my improvement more. The success of 60 year old TI coach in Japan proves it.

Default shinji's reference to 60 yr old ti coach in japan

shinji,

nice to hear from you. what is the reference to the 60 yr old ti coach in japan? also, if you would like to tell us how you do superman glide 12.5m (i understand you have now increased this to 16 yd), we would really like to hear it.

I never figured out what the balance ball is for. Now I will add it to my armory. Thanks Shinji!

He is a masters swimmer and has been raced for a couple of years.

His swim video(recorded in 08/2008)

He used to swim with tensed arms and make splash and bubbles so much.
Now he can swim with grace and speed. He races butterfly, too.
