Freestyle swimming



There are a lot of “common” mistakes that swimmers make in their everyday training that winds up effecting them down the line. These often result in laziness or bad habits, and wind up influencing a swimmer in both time and efficiency. Today we are going over a simple fix to your freestyle will improve it dramatically. We call this drill, the finger tip drag.

Finger tip drag is super simple. All your going to do is swim a somewhat normal freestyle (leaning more towards a catch up stroke), but when you are recovering your arm in your freestyle stroke you are going to keep your fingers on the surface and skim the water. This forces you to keep your elbows as high in the air as possible which winds up putting you into the perfect position to generate a powerful next stroke.

This is a drill that you can do often and at high volume as it is as close to a normal freestyle stroke as possible. You must make a conscious choice to make this change in your stroke, but when you do you will notice a HUGE improvement!

As usual, Let us know what you think of this weeks drill! Recommendations for our next video topic? Let us know in the comments below!

Common Freestyle Mistakes in Swimming

This iSport Lessons video shows beginner swimmers common mistakes made while swimming freestyle.

Women's Swimming 50m Freestyle - Semi-Finals | London 2012 Olympics

Highlights of the Women's Swimming 50m Freestyle Semi-Finals from the Aquatics Centre during the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Swimming has featured on the programme of all editions of the Games since 1896. The very first Olympic events were freestyle (crawl) or breaststroke. Backstroke was added in 1904.

In the 1940s, breaststrokers discovered that they could go faster by bringing both arms forward over their heads. This practice was immediately forbidden in breaststroke, but gave birth to butterfly, whose first official appearance was at the 1956 Games in Melbourne. This style is now one of the four strokes used in competition.

Women's swimming became Olympic in 1912 at the Stockholm Games. Since then, it has been part of every edition of the Games. The men's and women's programmes are almost identical, as they contain the same number of events, with only one difference: the freestyle distance is 800 metres for women and 1,500 metres for men.

How To Breathe When Swimming | Freestyle Swimming For Beginners

We breathe 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so why is breathing suddenly so difficult when we get in the water? Breathing and sinking legs are the two most common problems that swimmers actually face. So today, we're gonna look at tips of how to make you breathe a lot easier in the water and almost make it as natural as it is when you're on land doing activities.

Thanks to Club La Santa for the locations used in this shoot.

So let's start off from where it can all go really wrong. When you take in that big gulp of air and try and hold onto it, your body really doesn't react to that well. Yeah weirdly, holding your breath actually makes you feel like you're more desperate for air cause the buildup of carbon dioxide in your lungs and blood will trick your mind. So once you've taken that breath, start exhaling as soon as your face is back in the water and there should be a constant stream of bubbles known as trickle breathing.

So how do you get that breath in? So when you're swimming you want to stay streamline as possible but then tilt your head just enough that you can get that breath in.

Yeah, it's about the timing so when your arm is going just past your head, that's when you should be rotating on the opposite side to breathe. Now the key is to not turn your head too far like Mark said so ideally you just want to look to the side of the pool or at Mark, preferably, not up at the sky. Well that's probably enough of us talking about what you should be doing, let's get on to how you should do it. So we've broken it down into some drills and we're gonna start off by taking the stroke right back to the basics and just the kick but don't panic if you struggle on kick. Just pop some fins on and you'll find this exercise easy. This is a really straightforward one. It's gonna be a side kick with your arms down by your side. If you're swimming along next to the wall I want you just to be facing the wall and then turning your head slightly to breathe and then you can flip round to make sure you do it on the other side coming back.

So six kicks, one stroke. You're basically gonna take one stroke and then kick six times on one side and that's to teach you constant breathing on the surface of the water before taking another stroke and switching sides.

Well now just starting to build the stroke back up, you can add in one arm. There's quite a few variations of this. You can start off with one arm out in front, you're swimming just say with your right arm breathing to the right side but then to make it a little bit harder put your left arm down by your side, keep swimming with your right, breathing on this side but then when you've got that mastered you can actually rotate to the other side and breathe over there as you would when you're swimming.

Learn Freestyle Swimming With Olympic Medalist Natalie Coughlin

Learn Freestyle Swimming With Olympic Medalist Natalie Coughlin. Natalie Coughlin is very competitive and even with a medal count at 3 golds, 4 silvers, 5 bronze, she is still training harder and reaching for more.
Natalie Coughlin
Natalie Coughlin—or Queen Natalie, as perhaps she should henceforth be called—was born in Vallejo, California, in 1982. Coughlin lives in California with her husband, Crow Canyon Sharks Coach, Ethan Hall. She has dogs, enjoys cooking and eating good food, and she also appeared on Dancing with the Stars in 2009. She continues to train at Cal Berkley but switched from the women’s team to train with the men ahead of the Rio Olympics.
Background and Early Success
Coughlin began her illustrious swimming career at age 6, and by the time she was a high school student Coughlin achieved national recognition. She set national high school records in both the 200-yard IM and the 100-yard backstroke, which would soon become one of her best events. In 1998, at age 16, Coughlin qualified for every single event at summer nationals, proving her talent and versatility.
NCAA Career
Under renowned coach Teri McKeever at the University of California, Coughlin made history as the first female to ever swim the 100-meter backstroke in under one minute in 2002. She is a three-time NCAA Swimmer of the Year and three-time Pac-10 Swimmer of the Year. She won 12 NCAA titles and upheld an undefeated dual meet record throughout her collegiate career (61-0). She still holds Cal records in the 100 freestyle, 100 backstroke, 200 backstroke, 100 butterfly and 200 butterfly, and remains Cal’s most decorated swimmer of all time.
