19 Feb How to perform front-crawl swimming tirelessly?
Front-crawl swimming is one of the popular swimming styles, has a fast swimming speed, and is chosen by many people when participating in swimming. Even so, for beginners to stride swimmers, they often get tired very quickly every short swim. So do you know how to swim in front-crawl style tirelessly and as long as possible? Today, we would like to share with you some good experiences around this tireless swimming problem.
According to the coaches and swimmers, to do front-crawl tirelessly, you need to have a scientific practice method and perform the best front-crawl swimming technique. Specifically, the ways to swim tirelessly can include:
1. Always keep the body afloat
Staying afloat is one of the basic ways to help you lose energy and not get tired while doing stride swimming. If you do not know how to keep people above the water while swimming stride, you can practice as follows:
– Look directly to the bottom of the pool when swimming (if the pool has a swimming pool submerged in the water, you should look into the pool to avoid swimming deviation). According to the coach, you should use swimming goggles to better see when underwater and to perform the best movement.
Keep your eyes perpendicular to the bottom of the tank. Keeping the eyes perpendicular to the bottom of the tank helps to ensure that the rear body is always at level with the water surface.
2. Exactly perform the hand-fan technique
An underwater hand-fan is a quite important movement when we swim stride and proper hand fan technique will also help you not get tired when swimming. Specifically, when performing underwater hand fan movements, it is necessary to ensure:
– When swimming requires fingers to bunch like two arrows rushing away and tearing the wind into the water.
– The elbow must be higher than the water surface to limit the loss of strength when shrinking the fan arm; At the same time, it is possible that the front body can be deeply submerged under the water.
With the wrists, the swimmer’s stride should conduct a slight contraction of the wrist before starting to press the water. The wrist contraction will make it easier to catch water.
When performing hand-fan movements you need to note the following:
– Hand movements need to pull until touching thighs to be able to maximize strength and the body can glide long in the water.
– If you only pull your hand halfway and bring it up from the water, you need to conduct a hand fan continuously like a paddle.
– Turn the body to tilt to the fan side when performing a hand-fan rotation.
3. Breathe properly
Breathing correctly will ensure the body is adequately supplied with oxygen and less stressful when swimming stride. The correct breathing technique for stride swimming is:
– Take a lot of breath through your mouth when you raise your head.
– Breathe strongly through your nose when submerged in the water. Absolutely do not perform oral breathing as it will choke the body.
4. Perform the right tilt
According to stride swimmers, to ensure that you do not create additional drag and at the same time do not drown your fast breathing muscles, it is best to tilt your head to the dominant hand. Proceed as follows:
When your left hand is submerged in the water, tilt your body to the right at an angle of about 45 degrees above the water surface.
– Tilt both the body and the head so that the body is homogeneous and minimize the resistance of the water.
5. Depress the correct footing technique
If you want to swim without getting tired and fastest, you should not step too hard or too much because a pedal like this will quickly lose strength in the body, and easily cramp. The correct way to kick your foot when swimming stride is to do it in moderation, slowly starting to then gradually increase your speed (with the most suitable adjustment).
6. Combine the whole movement with the correct technique
The most important thing about tireless swimming is that you need to combine hand and leg movements with proper underwater breathing techniques. However, when swimming in the water will have more resistance of water, so this combination is not easy. Therefore, you need to practice the combination moves smoothly when on land before entering the water. The principles to note when practicing are as follows:
– When the left hand is about to enter the water, the right-hand end the fan.
– When the right leg starts to swing from the bottom up, the left leg continues to bring down.
– When the left-hand gets in the water, the right-hand start to swing out of the water.
– When the left foot is brought down, the right leg is kicked up.
– When the left-hand starts to fan the water, the right-hand start swinging in the air.
– When the right foot starts to go down, the left foot starts to go up.
Above are some of the tireless swimming ways that we synthesized and re-shared from the experience of professional swim coaches and athletes. Hopefully, with these shares, you will swim longer, farther, and not get tired. Good luck!
