While most triathletes never bother to learn butterfly or breaststroke, there are many benefits—including injury prevention and an improved freestyle technique— to focusing on other competitive swim strokes. Here’s how to get started.
Learning how to flip turn correctly will speed you up in the water and help simulate the non-stop swimming triathletes encounter during an open-water swim.
Learning proper pacing using slow, solid technique work is one of the best ways to improve your efficiency in the water so you can swim faster in a race with less effort.
Now is the time for slowing down your swim stroke so you can master the technique and endurance necessary for big speed gains next year.
