At the end of the article, we built a sample workout for you to really feel the online improvement quickly by strengthening and elongating specific muscles in swimming.

Why do people make the same mistake of saying that their problem in swimming is they don’t pull water strongly?

If you work with a swimmer for a whole swimming lesson on the pull,  (I’m not talking about professional swimmers or Olympic swimmers) you will see that if he doesn’t swim WEST he will swim slower in 25m and with 10% or more stokes.

Most masters swimmers or triathletes create stress when thinking on pulling and stress creates drag in the water, and eventually lets you swim much much slower

Loosening lower back= swimming much faster

It is always recommended to improve your swimming technique   according to the  WEST method, as well as to improve your swimming, lower back and also swim much faster.
