SWIMMING WORKOUTS
THIS HOW I SMAM MY WAY SLIM
FREE STYLE STROKE

1. BAN NECK BEND--N FREESTYLE, YOU ROTATE FROM SIDE TO SIDE AS YOU STROKE. TO BREATH EVERY THREE STROKES AND MAINTAIN SPEED, KEEP YOUR HEAD AND BODY IN LINE AS ROLL INSTEAD OF TURNING YOUR NECK. WHEN YOUR NOT BREATTHING, HOLD YOUR HEAD FACING DOWN. IF YOU ARE JUST BEGINNING AND HAVE A HARD TIME BREATHING FOR THE LENGTH OF A POOL USE A SNORKLE TO BREATH AND KEEP YOUR HEAD IN THA WATER ALL THE TIME AND YOUR BODY STIRAIGHT. THIS IS WHAT I AM HAVING TO DO FOR MY SWIM TEAM WORK OUTS PER DR ORDERS UNTIL THEY CAN SEE WHAT IS GOING ON WITH MY BACK AND GET IT FIXED.
2. ARC YOUR ARMS-- WITHEACH STROKE, YOUR ARM SHOULD ENTER THE WATER SLIGHTLY CURVED, AS IF YOUíRE HUGGING A HUGE BALL. YOU REACH OUT, BUT DONíT EXTEND A STRIGHT ARM, THAT PREVENTS FROM FULLY ENGAGING SHOULDER MUSCLES THROUGH OUT YOUR STROKE, SO YOU LOSE POWER. ALSO KEEPING YOUR ARM CURVED AND CLOSE TO YOUR BODY EXTEND YOUR ARM AS FAR AS CAN. THIS WORKS YOUR ARMS AND AB MUSCLES AND ASLO IS EASIER TO DO AND GIVES YOU MORE SPEED EASIER.
3. THINK TIGHT TORSO--SUCK IN YOUR NAVEL TO ENGAGE THE CORE AS YOU ROLL FROM SIDE TO SIDE. YOUR TORSO HELPS THE PARTS OF YOUR BODY MOVE AS A UNIT, WHICH AIDS IN AMPING UP THE SPEED AND EASING YOUR EFFORT. YOU CAN ALSO WORK YOUR CORE MORE MY PUTTING A WEDGE BETWEEN YOUR THIGHS AND USING YOU ARMS ONLY SWIM THE LENGTH OF OF THE POOL AND NEVER USE YOUR LEGS. THIS ALSO HELPS YOUR CORE MUSCLES AND HELPS GETS YOUR ARMS STRONGER TO SWIM AT A FASTER RATE AND ALSO CHANGES UP THE WORK OUT.
4, KEEP LEGS LONG-BENDING KNEES AS YOU KICK MAKES MORE SPLASH THAN SPEED
