How to Swim: (Instantly) No Strokes!


Hi, you’re watching deep water with hugh and in this video you’re gonna learn about a new approach to swimming comfortably in large and deep bodies of water. I spent my whole life trying to figure out why I get freaked out by deep water now I got some answers and I want to share them with you now if you’ve already spent a lot of time and money trying to get comfortable in water, even in shallow, water don’t worry because the techniques and tools that I’m going to share with you should be able to help you regardless of your skill level. Now if you spent a lot of time and money in the past trying to get comfortable in water and you haven’t had any success part of the reason is that they’re using the wrong techniques or techniques and tools or lack of tools as you’ll find out so you’re still feeling uncomfortable you’re still feeling out of control so what I’m gonna be able to show you will work for any skill level it doesn’t matter whether you’re an advanced Olympic swimmer or you’re a beginner. I’ve noticed from my experience is that both advanced swimmers and beginner swimmers have the same problem with deep water and you might be saying Hugh I don’t want to deal I don’t even want to think about deep water at this point right now I’m just trying to get comfortable in water… not to worry again these techniques work at any skill level and they basically help the beginner to gain confidence with being in water because you’re going to learn control techniques and they help the the advanced swimmer understand basically a different thinking a different thinking and different techniques in terms of their ability to survive in deep water. How are we different? The problem with most schools is that they’re teaching the classic swim strokes and the problem with the classic swim strokes is… well in my school basically the important we realize what’s important for beginner swimmers and for advanced swimmers is knowing how to get air under all circumstances so getting air is vital and the problem with the classic strokes is that getting air is too complicated it’s too advanced timing has to be perfect and so if you’re a beginner you’re going what the heck?! what gives?! many times the teachers that are teaching these classic strokes have had decades to understand how the breathing technique works and they don’t understand they can’t relate to the beginner who doesn’t know how to time these. So with a few techniques I mean just basically some simple techniques and tools you can teach yourself how to get air and then you’ll be able to realize that you know as you train in shallow water you’ll realize that that will transfer easily to even deep water and once you understand that all you have to do is control that basically yourself understand that understand control, buoyancy, orientation, how to get air. If you know how to do those. You can, you’ll be confident in any body of water. Back to the the classic swim strokes and why many even advanced swimmers never learn some of these techniques is that they’re in a pool all day their entire lives every day for their entire lives going back and forth so they become very efficient at moving from point A to point B but the one thing they forget about is they have so many points of where they can rest they can rest on the gutter the edge the side the ladder the steps the pool lane dividers there’s so many places to rest that they never realized that they don’t need to know how to rest all they know is is is about treading water or basically not training water but moving from point A to point B treading water is another another technique that we can show you but that again is a little bit more advanced the point we’re trying to make is that what all swimmers need to know and should want to know is how to rest in the water and basically just how to get air on demand man when they need it. When you know how to do this rest and get air then conceivably you could stay in the water for days barring your need for food and water but you’re not expending any energy with these techniques and so and when you know how to use these techniques then you will avoid any panic and panic and just constant swimming those two things are what can lead to you know just bad things so if you know how to swim you may and you don’t know how to rest then of course you’re going to just exhaust yourself and that could be a problem and if you panic we all know we all know how that ends… So if this video has resonated with you please share it with you know people you care about friends family your community I’m hoping that it resonates with you I’m going to be putting together some more videos that are going to talk a little bit more about concepts I know you’re probably wanting to see see some techniques in the water but before we go to the water we I want to make sure that you understand where we’re coming from and then we’ll talk about and we’ll talk about some of the tools and then we’ll then we’ll go into the water and show you how how we use the tools and the techniques but again if the best way you can support us and show us that you want us to create more videos is by liking and subscribing of course and and then of course sharing this with friends and family in the community we’re also going to be promoting some some of the equipment that we use to help you swim don’t worry it’s not expensive it’s just basically simple items but we’ll put those links on it for Amazon so if you want to support this channel please please pick that equipment up by using by using those links down below in the description the last thing that I would really be helpful is for you to as a community and as individuals to share your experiences in swim… you know regarding swimming and how and why it became difficult why it seemed like you are never able to pick up the skills that that are necessary to feel comfortable in water and let everybody know that that they’re not alone and it’ll allow me to respond to you on an individual basis and then also tailor these videos so that I’m speaking actually to the people that are that are watching these videos so share your comments basically you know put in as many comments as possible and ask a lot of questions but otherwise let us know what your expectations are that that would that would also really help and we’ll just go from there thanks for watching

  1. Thanks for the video Hugh. As a struggling adult swimmer that simply wants to learn enough to swim in open water, this resonates with me!

  2. Thanks for the insight Hugh. As an adult learning how to swim from square one, what you say is very true for me personally. Getting air properly is the biggest hurdle and that aspect alone does not give me confidence in the water. As an adult, I have tried two different swim schools and free style is the first thing I am being taught. Coordinating all the movements while also trying to get air has been a very frustrating experience. Teachers have never told me how to rest and just move continuously. I look forward to your next video!
