5 Steps to be better!

Being a good swimmer requires dedication, practice, and technique. Here are some tips on how to become a good swimmer:

  1. Proper technique: Proper technique is the foundation of good swimming. This includes body position, arm stroke, leg kick, breathing, and timing. Learn the correct technique from a trained expert/coach and practice it consistently.

  2. Consistent training: Consistency is key to improving your swimming. Make a schedule and stick to it. Some practice is better than no practice.

  3. Focus on endurance: Building endurance is important for swimming longer distances and proving proficiency. Work on gradually increasing your distance, without compromising your breathing and technique.

  4. Work on your speed: Only when you have built up your endurance, you should start working on your speed. Incorporate interval training for shorter distances into your workouts to improve speed and reduce time, then only gradually increase the distance.

  5. Rest and recovery: Rest and recovery are crucial for avoiding injury and improving performance. Overtraining and practicing can take a toll on

your body, so take sufficient rest and recover when you need to during or after your session.

By following these tips patiently, you can become a good swimmer and improve your overall performance and achieve your goals. Remember to always have fun and enjoy the process!
