Swimming tips for a beginner?
peeing is ok pooping is frowned upon
dont drink the water
Do not try to breathe under the water
dont swim too much
not more than 30-40 mintues
that water will fuck your skin and hair
Do not swim too much. If you swim 3 hours less each day, you will have extra month to succeed in a year.
I swim for 3 to 4 hours a day 6 days a week. Skin is fine.
Count strokes at first and always breath on the same stroke. You’ll get into a rhythm. I prefer to always breath on my right side and eventually you’ll stop needing to count or think and will start to just get it
>Always breath on the same side
Good way to destroy your shoulders mate. It's fine for competition, but in training you should breathe to both sides.
Jump into the pool at the correct angle so your goggles don't fall off
Acclimate your lungs to the water go as deep as you can take a big breath fill your lungs with water and you’ll be well on your way
Microdose the water and gradually inhale more and more over the course of several months. This is how you will amphibianmaxx and be able to breathe on land and underwater.
i would swim but chlorine is so fucking bad for you and going to the beach is this whole ordeal & i hate getting all sandy
saltwater > chlorine
Also try doing CSS its fun
they used to use iodine bros
how did it all get so bad
I bet hook noses are responsibly somehow
Any tips for breathing while doing crawl?
I'm trying to learn it but fuck up and get water when breathing most of the time.
I'm always breathing in on the odd number of strokes, usually 5, but I guess if you're just starting you can go on 3. You can try to start breathing out when your mouth is still underwater, so once it's outside you just breathe in, that way you get more air into your lungs and you will be able to close it before you dive again as you have more time.
Water won't get in when you're breathing out, don't worry - but it still requires some practice.
Thanks, i'll go swimming in an hour, if the thread is still up when I'm back I'll report back.
You shouldn't be lifting your head out of the water to breath. Doing that tips your whole body back and kills your momentum. Focus on rolling your head to the side. When I breath my nose is usually in line with the water surface. Don't be ashamed to breath often if you need it. Every other stroke is fine if you're just starting out. Worry more about breathing smoothly without fucking up your form.
You should breathe every 3 strokes so you are not favoring 1 side. I’ve been swimming this way for years. You can also do sets breathing every 5 for an additional challenge.
you wanna kinda keep your chin tucked it’s more diagonal looking backwards than it is looking to your side
start at age 7, i now swim-mog all of my friends
slow, deep breathes. take a minute or two to relax and enjoy the deep inhales before you even touch the water - then swim until you need to breath
Even without strenuous activity you can get gassed pretty quick. Focus on endurance and a half-lap/full lap/two laps/ of underwater swimming before you get fixated on outright speed/power/explosiveness.
Swimming is great exercise and even though I swim like a fish, 90% + of the benefit is mental, take advantage of that while you have the chance.
Invest in good towels. I have one made to put on the floor to keep my feet dry. Dry very well between your toes or you can get in trouble. Take body lotion with you and apply after swimming to save your skin.
>never swim in chlorine, only swim in salt water
No one here swims
How do you get into swimming as a hobby? I don’t intend to complete, I just want to get good at it for fun and fitness.
Careful not to drow.
Don't neglect backstroke if you don't want to look like a hunchback or focus on your upperback at the gym.
Also practice kickboard or work your legs hard at the gym since swimmers tend to have weak legs.
Backstroke is awesome
wear your goggles so tight that your brain gets limited circulation
try to start going as slow as you possibly can, as slooow as you can swim without losing form and sinking, and go for as long as you can without stopping
don’t worry about flip turns in the beginning
i think breaststroke is probably the easiest to start with if you’re a total
noob, though it’s a rather complicated stroke in terms of timing and that frog kick is tricky af with the feet, but you can breathe free
for freestyle i like breathing on odd strokes, so every 3/5/7, so then my head alternates sides
plenty of videos but the kick is a flutter it’s like one big two little one big two little
for a technique thing for free, drag your fingertips along the water, keep your elbows high, huge torso twists, max extension, as you get better you can keep your fingers out of the water and you’ll have near perfect entry

purchase and wear your swimming cap. the constant pull that's exerted on your hair as you swim will cause some degree of hair loss/accelerate hair loss. there's a reason why people that swim a lot (without a cap) have super thinned out hair. be sure that the cap isn't pulling on your hair too much itself.
>t. guy that almost drowned at 7 and has never learned to swim
What the fuck. Is this true?
obviously not. you fags are so gullible
>there's a reason why people that swim a lot (without a cap) have super thinned out hair.
Isn't that just the chlorine?
>swimming makes you bald
>never learned to swim
only swim breast stroke because it's the easiest.
Don't waste energy with your arm out of the water, break the surface with your elbows and tips of your fingers then follow through, push the water diagonally away from you when arms are in the water, and when they're out the main thing is extending them for the next stroke (so you want to move them less vertically and more horizontally).
Dip your head slightly when it's under the water so you're streamlined.
That's the nuanced side of things, but I've been swimming for over ten years and my form will last maybe 500m before I start making small mistakes.
