For athletes without coaches, the biggest challenge is that there are many extremely subtle differences between freestyle movements and movements, and it is difficult for you to find a technique and method that can systematically cover all the technical essentials. Where should I practice first? How to practice to improve the fastest? How should it be improved?


The following are the seven most important principles that should be followed in freestyle swimming. This "swimming premium package" is suitable for anyone, whether you swim fast or slow, whether you are a beginner or an experienced player.



1. Don't hold your breath


The inability to breathe is caused by the carbon dioxide in the lungs. When your face is in the water, keep exhaling with your nose and mouth, so you will feel much better. Inhaling every three strokes is a more comfortable breathing mode, because you can breathe on both sides and get enough oxygen.


2. Relax! Relax! Still relax!


Don't look at this law as simple, you will understand its importance when you start swimming. The best swimmers in the world swim as if sliding on the surface of the water. Be sure to follow the temper of water, because people can't fight water. Therefore, when you are in the water, be sure to relax your whole body and concentrate on swimming forward. Learn to practice the skills of floating face down in the water.



3. The body is in a straight line

Practice on the land first, stand up straight, remember the position of your neck and the orientation of your face at this time. Then copy this posture into the water. At this time, the waterline just cuts through the middle of the top of your head, and your face should be in the water.

4. Remember to coast

The steps of paddling in swimming and bicycle pedaling and running are different, because it is not a continuous process, or it should not be a continuous process. When running, each step is connected to the next step. The rotation of the chainring is also continuous when riding, but there should be a short gliding between each stroke and the next stroke during swimming. When your arm enters the water, slide for a while and then move forward. Don't keep paddling like a windmill.

5. Turn your body, but don't turn it over


Rotating the body is a technical activity, and if it is turned well, it will be very ornamental and beautiful. The body cuts into the water like a knife. The trick here is not to turn around. If the bottom of the swimming pool is horizontal and the wall is vertical, no matter which side your body is turning, do not exceed 45 degrees. Remember, the head and calves should not rotate with the body and hips, keep your feet straight up and down to get water.


6. Never cross the center line of your body

Under no circumstances should your arms cross the central axis of your body. Every time you stroke, your arms should go directly into the water at the front of your shoulders. Open your arms, grab the water, sweep inwards, and gently stroke your thighs when you pull the water at the end. The whole action looks like a question mark is drawn. Keep your fingertips pointing towards the bottom of the pool.

7. Start kicking from the hip

Relax your knees. The toes are stretched straight. Imagine the feeling of slapping your toes on the water. You have to slap small splashes. If you feel a little sore in the gluteal flexors, that's right.
