Get A Big Breath For Better Swimming

I am a BIG advocate of floating exercises.


However, some people really struggle with them initially.


If you’re struggling to experience their power, it’s probably a simple execution issue.


Fortunately, I have a simple solution.


The purpose of these exercises is to FEEL your lungs.


Once you can FEEL them, you can learn how they positively impact your ability to achieve a great body position and relax in the water.


If you REALLY want to feel your lungs, you need to take a BIG breath.


Like really big!


The more air you can get in your lungs, the better you’ll be able to achieve the positions.


During the floating exercises, this is critical.


Don’t just ‘sip’ the air, fill it up!


You’ll find these exercises a lot easier, which will accelerate your progress.


Check out THIS playlist for my greatest hits.


Now, this isn’t necessarily how you want to breathe while swimming.


You don’t have to take huge breaths.


It’s actually easier to float when you’re swimming, and because you have much better AWARENESS due to the floating exercises, you’ll be able to execute great position with less air.


When breathing, get big or go home.


If you have any tips for how to improve your floating exercises, e-mail me back and I’ll be sure to let everyone know!


If you found this information helpful in way, I’d really appreciate it if you could share it with a friend you think could benefit.


Whenever YOU are ready, there are 2 ways I can help you take your swimming to the next level:


1. If you’re looking for pre-made solutions to improve your swimming, check out my resources Freestyle Made Simple and Addressing Adult-Onset Swimming.

2. If you want a more personalized learning experience, we can work together to analyze your stroke or develop a technical training plan.


Keep it simple...
