The smoothest fastest swimming :: Freestyle Friday #5 :: catch up swim


Helloooou! and welcome to freestyle fridaaaaay! Today’s tip is called catch up swim. If you want to swim faster but with even less
effort you need to maximize your stroke efficiency. Many would think that if you pull harder then
you can move farther with each stroke, and they are not wrong but there is a better easier
way! Try this. For this exercise wait until your arm finishes
the pull to start pulling with your other arm. While you pull make yourself longer by reaching
forward with your other arm. Do this a couple of times too see how you
can move easily through the water while your other arm waits. When you swim, don’t wait until you other
arm comes back completely, start your other pull when your hand passes your head. Or just think of holding that arm in front
a little longer. If you want proof that this works just watch
Ian Thorpe break the 400 world record. In the first 50 alone he took 22% less strokes
as the guy who got second. Thorpe took 27 stroke :: The guy who got second
took 35 strokes. I’ll leave a link in the description of
the full race. Before you go! Help us out by clicking that like button! Thanks for watching! Swim fast!
