So often you see numerous tips on swimming, how to swim faster, how to swim stronger, where your hand should enter the water…etc. This post is really simple. In order to swim faster and more efficiently you need to do two things: Increase your propulsion and Decrease your resistance. That simple.
In order to swim your best you should ask yourself two questions:
(1) Is this drill helping me increase my propulsion?
(2) Is this drill helping me decrease my resistance?
If any drill or swim session doesn’t address these two things, you should stop and reevaluate “why” (equals purpose) am I doing this?
Keep it simple and focus on more propulsion in the water and less resistance in the water.
