Tips to Breathe Underwater

1. Build on stamina

Stamina is improved by proper body conditioning. This is important to last underwater for a longer time. The best way to build stamina is by doing exercises. Few exercise routines available to almost everyone are running and brisk walking. Sports such as soccer, basketball or tennis can accelerate endurance. Exercise maintains proper functioning of body organs and promotes healthy blood circulation.

2. Relax

It is easier to breathe longer underwater when you relax. Everything else will follow when you are confident that everything is under your control. Before swimming for shorter or longer distances, it is recommended to go in and out of the water. ‘Bobbing’ is the name given to this activity. It allows you to concentrate on your breathing and preparing you for a swim. Small breaths can be inhaled from the air above water and breathe everything out when you go underwater. Keep getting some air and this process should be repeated until you can control your breathing.

3. Avoid ‘apnea’

The time duration for which your breath is held underwater can be made lengthy by taking multiple exhalations greater than one can usually do. This lowers the level of carbon dioxide in the blood. Low carbon dioxide level may cause someone to stop breathing leading to a condition called ‘apnea’. This can cause you to pass out underwater. Having a companion will be better to make sure that you can be helped if such condition arises.

There are more ways of breathing underwater. Scuba diving requires breathing equipment for the diver where a tank containing compressed air paired with a mouthpiece allows air to flow freely from the tank to the lungs. Another way to breathing underwater is through snorkeling gear. This gear may only be used on water surfaces closer to the air above the water.

Underwater breathing is an important part of being skillful in swimming. It helps the swimmer to last longer in the water. The above mentioned underwater breathing tips will also help in building your lungs and muscles.

 

Swim Training Styles

Some swimmers might need to be retrained before they are ready for swimming at the competitive level. The swimmer might have been lax during the winter and might not have swum at all. The lazy daze of summer might have caused the swimmer to be lax in all manners of training and the swimmer will have to get used to fast starts and regain the competitive edge that they exhibited the year before. Some swimmers lose interest in swimming competitively and will need a persuasive coach to get them back on the team.

Some swimmers need to develop more strength in the upper portion of their bodies because they will be tasked to perform strenuous swimming strokes such as the breaststroke, butterfly, or backstroke during swimming meet styled competitions. The swimmer will perform these swimming strokes during various parts of the day, and each race will require a longer distance than the last.

A coach might approach this type of swimming with training that concentrates on building upper body strength. The coach might require that the swimmer perform each swimming stroke for up to twenty minutes, and during that time, the swimmer will have to test their endurance by doing lap after lap until they have completed the required time limit.

The coach might also require that the swimmer hold on to floatation devices while they kick their legs to propel them around the pool. This training style will help the swimmer to build up strength in the muscles that are in the legs. The legs will be used to perform the kicking motion that is used on all of the swimming strokes that are required in swim meets.

The swimmer with the best strength and muscle condition is more likely to win the race they are in and a good coach will know this. Some coaches might seem to have strange styles of training used for swimming in competitive sports but the physical results of that training will be recognized when the swimmer starts winning races instead of coming in second all of the time.

There are certain training styles that are almost mandatory because without them, the swimmer will not know how to start a race. A swimmer might be tasked with diving from cinder blocks that are at the deep end of a pool several times an hour until they perfect each dive. A swimmer must dive deep enough to submerge all parts of the body but not to the point where time is taken away from swimming to the other end of the pool.
