Should You Be Using Training Equipment to Improve Your Technique?

Training tools for advanced swimmers can help.
Even advanced swimmers need training tools.

You may feel like you have your swim technique down and don’t need to resort to training equipment to improve it. However, like many other things in life, there is almost always room for improvement. Even advanced swimmers can benefit from body strength training using training tools that increase resistance in the water. The following training equipment should be on your list.

Rally Training Strap

The TYR rally training strap is designed specifically for advanced swimmers to help them improve their positioning in the water, as well as increase upper body strength. The quick release buckle makes it easy to take it on and off.

Pull Buoys

When you’re working on your upper body strength and arm techniques, pull buoys are the perfect tool. This piece of equipment helps you hold your legs still so you don’t have to kick and will provide the buoyancy you need to swim, while focusing on your arm movements.

Swim Fins

If you’re interested in strengthening your legs, swim fins can be the ideal option. There are different fins for specific purposes. Short fins, for instance, are perfect for helping you swim faster, while longer fins provide more resistance to help strengthen your legs.

Swim Snorkel

Swim snorkels aren’t just for leisure snorkeling. However, when you need to improve your swim technique, a swim snorkel can be the ideal option. It’s important to use the right motions for breathing, but if you are doing the breathing movements, it can be difficult to focus on the other aspects of your technique. A swim snorkel can help alleviate that issue.

Kickboards

Most people equate kickboards with teaching young children how to swim. While they’re an effective tool for this, they can also be useful in your typical swim training. As the kickboard supports your upper body, you can focus on your kicks, strengthening your legs and improving on your technique so you can put it all together later.

Swim training, even for advanced swimmers, requires specific training gear to be effective. Whether you use the TYR rally training strap or any other equipment, you will find you can improve your overall technique, as well as increase body strength.
