The Proper Way to Use Swim Paddles

Swim Paddles

The right swim paddles is essential to strengthen your performance.

There are many tools competitive swimmers can use to strengthen their swimming skills and improve their chances of winning in a race. One of the most common types of tools to use is the swim paddles. These paddles are a great way to strengthen the arms, shoulders and upper body so swimmers can more easily propel themselves through the water. However, there is an incorrect way to use these paddles, making it important for all swimmers to learn the proper way.

Master Your Stroke

One of the biggest mistakes swimmers make when they attempt to use swim paddles is using the paddles as a way to build on their swimming skills. However, paddles can actually cause injury if the swimmer does not already use the proper technique. Swimmers who use the paddles without the proper technique will definitely feel it when they aren’t swimming properly, but this will lead to pulled muscles and other injuries that can be detrimental to the long-term success of a swimmer. Only swimmers who have mastered their swimming techniques should use this training tool in their daily work.

Keep It Short

Swim paddles areĀ a swim tool that are not meant to be used for a long period of time. While you may use the paddles as part of your daily routine, you should only use them for a small portion of your practice time. They can build up the strength in your upper body and arms, but using them too much can again lead to injuries. This is because the paddles put a lot of stress on the arms and shoulders and will cause fatigue much more quickly.

The Right Paddles

There are many variations of swim paddles. Not all of them are designed to do the same things. For starters, the paddles should only be about 10 percent larger than your hand for the best results. Secondly, you need to pay attention to the type of paddle. For a beginner, a freestyle paddle is one of the best options. However, for someone who is a good swimmer, a catalyst paddle can be a better choice. Always talk to your coach about which type of paddle is best for your level of expertise.

Choosing the right swim paddles and knowing how to use them properly is essential to your success. Failure to use the right paddles or misuse of this training tool can lead to injuries and a poor performance when race time approaches.





Essential Swim Team Gear for Training

Swim Team Gear

Providing your team with essential training gear is important.

When you are the coach of a swim team, you want your team to be the best it can be. This means providing your team with all the tools they need to increase their endurance and enhance their skills as they work toward greater things. When planning for what you need to train your team to be the best they can be, there are certain pieces of equipment you must invest in. This will ensure your swimmers will grow stronger and improve continually.

Swim Fins and Paddles

Swim fins and paddles can be an excellent tool to build strength and endurance in swimmers. Because of the wide flaps on the fins and paddles, there is more resistance against the water. This increased resistance causes a swimmer to have to kick or stroke harder for the same results. When you work harder, you will be building your muscles and increasing their endurance so you will have an easier time swimming through the water when you aren’t wearing them.

Pull Buoys

Another important training tool for your swim team gear is the pull buoy. These devices are kept between the swimmer’s legs to restrict their use. When you are using a pull buoy, it will force you to use your arms to propel you through the water as much as possible, helping you to strengthen the muscles in your arms. This increase in upper body strength is crucial to your swimming success.

Stretchcordz

Stretchcordz are yet another useful tool to keep in your swim team gear arsenal. These stretchcordz come with a belt that wraps around your waist. You then hand onto the handles at the ends of the elastic cords as you swim. The cords move freely around the belt, giving you free range of motion. However, the resistance the cords create will allow you to increase your arm and upper body strength to improve your swimming.

Providing all the swim team gear your team needs to train will ensure they have all the tools necessary to be successful swimmers. It is up to you to ensure your swimmers are trained in the best way possible. With the help of these important tools, your swimmers will see great improvement as they go through their training exercises. When they hit the pool, they can be confident in their strength, endurance and skills so they will do the best they can against their competitors.
