Secret Tips:

» Rotating the entire body as "ONE" will not only help you generate more power, but will help you swim straighter as well.

» Triathletes should know how to swim without exerting the legs so they are fresh for the bike and the run.

» The head should not "lag" the body roll when rolling to breathe.

» Coordination of the arm pull and body rotation are critical for efficient swimming.

» Legs can be used for forward propulsion, torque rotation, artificial balance, and body positioning.

» Fist-closed swimming is a good way to make sure you are not using the hands improperly.

» When getting ready for an open water swim remember, that it is better to be warm than to be warmed up.
