You work so hard, but can't seem to find that speed you want in the water. You’re still dragging, gasping, and not seeing much return from your investments. It's time to use the water and not let use you.

Swimming doesn't have to be so hard. Today we break it down in the simplest terms and make the swim stroke easy. We dive into the reach/entry, catch along with early vertical forearm, a solid pull, and powerful finish. Have your mind ready when you get back in the pool!

  • Hand into the water, it needs to be preparing to work.
  • Reach as far as you possibly can
  • When you enter the water early and tvhink about a high elbow out of the water, it forces you to shorten stroke
  • Why swimming is so difficult . . . we’re not used to it.
  • Early vertical forearm
  • Swimming is simple: Swimming square and staying in your box
  • What your arm should look like out of the water?
  • 3 Different parts of the box - the stroke
  • The front part, the middle, the back
  • Body position and staying high in the water
  • The cycle of a stroke
  • Where the stroke breaks down and gives you nothing .. .
  • Pressure on forearms
  • How to build REAL swim fitness . . .
  • Most of us swim the “easiest way” and taking the path of easiest resistance
  • Pressure and fatigue means you’re working
  • Developing different gears in the water
  • Building your Swim Cake
  • How to not go anaerobic in a race
  • Why your kick could be slowing you down
  • The competitor in you . . . be excited to jump in … game’s on
  • Fitness in swimming is a domino effect
  • What do do when you finally get back in the water
  • Work your system harder with 25s and 50s . . .
  • The dead spots in your stroke
  • Just because your arm is in the water doesn’t mean it’s doing anything
  • You can work so hard . . . and get nowhere. Sinking… gasping… swimming slow.
