Supplies to ease your learn-to-swim journey
This week's topic is swimming aides! These aides can be extremely useful in helping swimmers improve their technique and build strength. They can also help beginners feel more comfortable in the water and reduce the risk of injury. Feel free to check out the links below to find my favorite swimming aides!
Swimming fins can help you swim faster and strengthen your leg muscles. They can provide several benefits such as improving leg strength, increasing ankle flexibility, helping with body positioning, and enhancing overall swimming technique. They can also be used for different types of training, such as sprinting or endurance work, and can be a useful tool for both beginner and advanced swimmers. Click on the images below for some of Amanda's favorite fins. Amanda's favorite brands are FINIS and Cressi.
2. Kick Boards
Kick boards can be beneficial for new swimmers in many ways. They can help strengthen leg muscles, improve balance, and can be used in different ways to vary your swimming workouts and train different muscle groups. Kick boards are also a great tool for rehabilitation after an injury.
3. Pull Buoys
A pull buoy is a useful tool for swimmers as it helps to isolate the upper body and arms, allowing swimmers to focus on improving their upper body strength and technique. It also helps to improve body position and balance in the water.
By using the right swim equipment, you can improve your performance and reduce the risk of injury. Make sure to choose equipment that fits well and is comfortable to wear. Happy swimming!
