Want To Swim Faster - Remember these tips

Don’t complicate things.
They are the only two ways to swim faster.

        Excerpt from Effortless Swimming

"There’s only two ways to swim faster – You can either increase your stroke rate (the number of strokes you take per minute) or you can travel further for each stroke you take (also known as distance per stroke). Don’t complicate things. They are the only two ways to swim faster.

Head position determines body position – Your body will follow where you head goes. If you’re hips are sinking, it’s likely your head is too high. Use the angle of your head to control where your body sits in the water. Throwing your head side-to-side will cause you to ‘snake’ in the water. Keep your head still!

Kick within your body shape – Your kick is used for two things. Propulsion and body balance. Kicking your legs outside the shape and alignment of your body creates drag. Keep your kick small and tight."
