It started with a simple question: How do swimmers get a better feel for the water? Then it went all on into how and why triathletes should approach swimming. We talk about the importance of speed work, how to get the best catch and explain early vertical forearm. We also look at breaking the pull buoy addiction and the key to keeping legs high in the water. Kicking is always a hot button and we’ll explain why it actually slows many triathletes down. And finally, we give you practical approach for picking the most valuable tactics for making you a better swimmer.
