  1. What causes the change of a posture during the training? I notice it's easier to maintain low profile in the beginning but soon after I start to arch, legs drown and so on.

  2. Wow! Thanks very much! Great tips! I do work to keep stomach flat.
    Reaching fully forward also helps keep body straight and flat.
    Thanks Brenton

  3. no one ever talks about body density in all these you tube videos. they all show men and women without a mention of the extra adipose tissue females possess that aids them in buoyancy. so you always see the females with excellent body position while those of us (males) are pathetically sinking and creating loads of drag. unless we possess other traits that make us efficient, all the vidoes and drills and tips take a back seat to body density, if i didn't have to contend with a low fat content, muscular legs i;d be a masters whizz in the pool.

  4. Just found channel. I am able to swim but have no endurance.
    Any videos on improving would be appreciated.
    And trust me I am basic. I bet I couldn't swim 4 lengths with out having to take a rest.

  5. Honestly the best example for body position that I’ve seen in the swim world is Sun Yang’s 6 beat stroke. Or Sun yang in general.

  6. Still find breathing my main obstacle in terms of endurance…. So difficult to get "easy " breathing going without lifting my head too far out the water…Do others have the same problem ? 🙂

  7. Old mate black swimming trunks is not too bad with his style, his stroke rate is very high, and he is going to tire quickly, but not too bad.  If I were his coach, I'd be working on teaching him how to swim slow, maybe put a pair of fins on for balance and concentrate on getting the most out of his pulling.  There is a bit of crossing over in his stroke, but he is doing quite a few things right, he has a bit of rotation, a kick that could be worked more on,  he has potential if he keeps swimming.  The girl has a much lower stroke rate, but her stroke is not very powerful she is pushing down a lot with her right arm and the big straight arms don't give me a lot of confidence.  I do like her timing though, even her push off and fly kick is well timed.

  8. Posture can be helped dramatically through a Qui Qong exercise. I have used the position (day 3) for many years. Some people will recognise this as a Tai chi warm-up.
    I'll add the you-tube link to Stand Still be fit. Warning – do not allow the mysticism to put you off from looking at the fundamentals you need to implement. https://youtu.be/RwlGisBCGA8
    Length of practice will never replace Perfect practice. 3 minutes of perfect practice is better than 3 hours of poor practice.

  9. Great video – I find it really useful. Allow me to correct a little mistake though; drag and resistance is not the same thing. The lines drawn on the male swimmers body are points of resistance, ie the water requires energy from the swimmer to be accelerated from “stand” still to move out of his way. Drag is the force exerted by the water on the swimmer as the stream separates from his body. The water is now moving at a speed, hence the pressure is lower than if it was still. The low pressure of the water is “pulling back” on the swimmer. Main areas of drag from the swimmer is the arched back and the legs. The same concept of higher velocity -> lower pressure is what enables an aero plane wing to generate lift. Hope someone finds this useful! Looking forward to more great content!

  10. Going through my history on You Tube…. I remember this one. My first thought on this one is 'suck in your gut'. Abs need to be tighter. This rotates the hips forward so it lowers the butt and takes the arch out of your back. Took me a long time to figure that one out….

  11. i think its because i have a big butt but ima guy so that's weight, i need to lose weight haha. also im black so thats probably another thing. oof ._.
