Nearly everyone understands that part, and no one has trouble inhaling while their heads are turned. But it’s underwater where the magic really happens. The CO2 Reflex Most people think that they feel out-of-breath when they aren’t getting enough oxygen. As your body uses oxygen, it creates carbon dioxide (CO2) as a waste product. Swimmers who don’t exhale properly will quickly feel winded because of this reflex, even though they probably aren’t really suffering oxygen debt.

The 4 Phases Of The Freestyle Swim Stroke

At this year’s Ironman New Zealand, she clocked a 47-minute 2.4-mile swim (1:12/100m pace), exiting the water with fellow swim standout and eventual winner Meredith Kessler. When she’s not training or racing around the world, Cleaver teaches other triathletes in her adopted hometown of Greenville, S.C., how to become better swimmers by going back to basics. Her thought process: deconstruct the stroke into four simple phases, address any blatant inefficiency, assign drill work and see quick results. “It just takes breaking a swimmer’s stroke down and identifying the phase that needs fixing and giving him or her the specific work to fix it,” Cleaver says.

“It’s not hard to see small things that you can work on. What you’re doing wrong: Over-reaching, crossing over. Front crawl. Swimmer breathing during front crawl The front crawl or forward crawl is a swimming stroke usually regarded as the fastest of the four front primary strokes.[1] As such, the front crawl stroke is nearly universally used during a freestyle swimming competition, hence freestyle is used metonymically for the front crawl.

Kicking is not only for propulsion

I've recently started using the Total Immersion system, and can say from first hand experience that I no longer need my legs to provide lift. Lift in the water comes from being properly balanced. I also find that inertia isn't a concern anymore, because as you improve your hydrodynamics you greatly reduce the amount of energy you need to put in to reduce drag.

In fact, because of the turbulence generated by a flutter kick, I find it hurts my inertia. A 2-beat kick creates almost no turbulence, while providing enough propulsion (or rather, allowing the body to create propulsion by rolling) to keep me moving forward. But it's different strokes for different folks. TI Kona Camp- Terry Laughlin discusses propulsion and positioning. Total ImmersionTotal Immersion.

Technically this is called a '6 Beat Kick' because for a full arm cycle you kick six times. This isn't something you have to think about too much, if you focus on a light flutter kick then the timing will naturally fall into place. Great swimmers such as Natalie Coughlin, Ian Thorpe and Michael Phelps use this style to great effect. You might have heard of a much slower style of kicking called a two beat kick: For a full arm cycle, the swimmer kicks twice. The advantage of this kicking style is that it uses less energy and so can be more energy efficient over longer distances.
