Whether you’re at the beginning of your training for a triathlon or just want to improve your overall swimming ability, improving your freestyle swimming is where you should focus your attention. By improving technique in your training, you will not only be able to swim faster and increase duration, but you will also improve overall fitness, enabling you to find swimming more enjoyable.
Always keep the following tips in mind:
No matter what type of swimming style you engage in, it is important to warm up correctly and include specific stretching exercises and strength training into your routine. This is particularly important so as you don’t damage your rotator cuff, commonly known as swimmer’s shoulder. Other common injuries include neck injuries, lower back injuries and knee injuries.
