Dead Swimmer

Visible to anyone in the world
From Swimming

Fig. 'Dead Swimmer' to 'Streamlined'

One of my favourite swimming drills across all levels of swimmer. Back to teaching after 18 months (or is it two years). Loaded on a Kindle I show it to swimmers in the water and walk them through it. We repeat it in the deep end of the pool and later build in gliding and kicking drills.

Of course, every kind of drill and programme can be found on YouTube.

I was thinking of paying hard cash to get a local lifeguard to teach me how to improve my technique in the pool but I might have a look on YouTube instead.

The Swimming Drill Book by Ruben Guzman is brilliant. And ever thought of a swimming club? Most have a Masters group - our club even teaches swimming for adults as well as kids.
