Stroke Length

First I want say thanks for yesterday's seminar. Next is that I have witnessed four people, no five, actually six (if you include our coach) that have transformed their swimming (and life) due to TI....

Relaxed Swimming Spreading

Yesterday, a good friend and I headed to the pool for some drills. As I arrived for the first time, I saw a person in the 2nd lane swimming very relaxed. I saw superman glide, two beat kick, and just...

Dont need it, thanks to TI

Appreciate the post, but I don't need to ever kick with a board. The two kick beat kick changed my life in the water. I will never do anything more in the tri's or any other swimming. This is one of...

kicking set

With a kick board I go backwards when kicking. I get about 20 yards and I am completely out of breathe. I am a runner, and was so demoralized before TI, especially when using a kick board. TI set me...

running for years

My advice - do as the Coach above says.

Learn to rest your head in the water. Although I had many stroke flaws in the beginning, when I did this I was able to go much farther. I really believe after...

thanks for the post

I sincerely appreciate this post, because I need to be more sensitive to EVF. This is something where up until now I have been happy to get the fingers down and trying to anchor the hand. However,...

yes I believe in the TI way (strict or not)

I saw another reply which suggests TI and TI coaches would not expect a strict set of exercises to learn, or order of exercises. This may be true, but back to this whole line of discussion, whats the...

Go for it - TI Coach is the bomb

I am a firm believer in TI and nothing else. I swam for almost 5-6 years the old way and even utilized a coach once. I was kick boarding and doing all kinds of dumb exercises. Most of the time I was...

I don't know how I came under the stupid understanding that kick first. If you notice in my videos I can do the kick first with the left leg, but never been able to unsync the right. Yes I was trying...

Dave,

I have the Polar S625X. The watch is awesome. My foot pod takes calibration but everything else work pretty flawless. I have two bikes with speed and cadence, the footpod, and of course the...

I thought the 310xt didn't track in the water. The Polar I use works but not all polars work. Actually my heart rate is so slow in the water, that it's not even worth tracking. I just track because...
