Swimming is all about EFFICIENCY in the water. It’s pretty simple- the better your swim economy the faster you will move through the water. You won’t really know what your swim actually looks like, however, until you have someone else take a thorough look.
I HIGHLY recommend a swim gait analysis if you really want to see where you can improve your stroke. It only takes a few hundred yards to do, and the results are totally worth it.
I video you doing a 100 yard swim where I count your strokes per lap and record your 100 yard swim time. I look carefully at all phases of your stroke from before the catch to the recovery and how you glide through the water. I go through my Ironman Checklist and note the things I see that you need to change in order to improve your swim economy. Swimmers are usually surprised when I find little things they don't even know they are doing. I then write up a report and you can start working on improving.
If we can’t do this in person, you can have someone video you and text or email it to me. I need views from the end of the pool and laterally as well. Wanna know more? Message me! Or you can go to the home page of Marinewifemultisport.com and sign up now!
