Hold Your Breath!

Our swimmers have been working hard on holding their breath off the wall, especially with freestyle flip turns.  
Set a goal, unique for you, to improve this skill.  It might be any of the following:

  • "During warm ups, I will hold my breath off the wall on each turn."
  • "I will do 10 flip turns without breathing on the first stroke today." 
  • "I will make a full practice without breathing on the first stroke today."
Watch the video below to see how many of our swimmers hold their breath on the first stroke off of the wall. 

Go Swim! has a great demo video to watch below.  
With enough practice, anyone can perfect this skill.

Good luck!
