Our favorite series is back! 

What do you think about when you swim? Turns out, it should be a lot of things . . . but in small doses. Today we get into the importance of the front end of your stroke. We talk about how to have a strong catch and good feel for the water. Both of those can improve your speed in the water tremendously. We also get into the idea of thinking but not thinking. Micro thoughts and how to work on your swim on the fly. We get into stroke rhythm, head position, cause and effect changes, and sighting obsession. We also tell you why swimming “wrong” on purpose could help you stroke. Loads of top-line, actionable discussion today about how to make you a better swimmer.
