To swim longer, we need to practice swimming that improves endurance. However, in order to swim faster, practicing short speed swimming exercises is a prerequisite. Like running, speed swimming exercises focus on the interval groups at short distances to improve strength and bursting of muscles.
When doing these interval exercises, we need to swim at a fast frequency of the hand fan and the right hand is energized. Below is an example of a basic exercise for speed improvement. As always, we will use stride swimming in this article.
When doing these interval exercises, we need to swim at a fast frequency of the hand fan and the right hand is energized. A swimming session should be designed to include at least the warm-up and the main exercise.
For a basic level, a swimming session with a total length of about 1500m is sufficient. Players at a higher level can swim longer and include extra exercises in addition to the main, and loose.
Remember to swim 100m fast but still pay attention to technique. Many times you use too much force to increase resistance, making you swim slower than usual. This is a structure that is quite suitable for a basic level, or helps higher level athletes get used to the feeling of water after many months of inactivity.
Rest between times is 20 seconds. In fact, your heart rate has also recovered a little during slow swimming sessions. This 4 x 100m swim is designed for increasing difficulty as the resting time is reduced after every 100m swim. If possible, you don’t need to rest 20 seconds at a time. The slow swim sessions are enough for you to recover.
After this exercise, not only did you improve your muscle speed, but your breathing ability also improved due to the swim structure with less rest time. I wish you a fun and scientific and effective swimming practice.
