Essentials of Swimming

Learning to swim is easy once you’ve learned the basics. It’s just like any other sport but the difference is, swimming is non-weight bearing and painless on the joints meaning zero the pain that running or lifting weights bring you. Before any activity would commence, you should first perform stretching to prevent your muscles from straining, stiffness and injury. Listed below are the fundamental steps to learn swimming:  

1.  The proper way of breathing  

Adults Swim Classes

This is the starting point to achieve your main goal. The importance of learning to breathe appropriately in swimming is to help you remain calm and collected once in the water. It will also provide your lungs sufficient air even when you’ve swam for 50m straight. Practice the breathing mechanics first on dry land.

· Take a deep breath  

· Hold your breath for five counts (Make sure the air is delivered to your lungs and not trapped in your mouth)  

· Blow out the air through your nose  

Once you’ve practiced on land, proceed to the water to apply what you’ve learned. 

Submerge your head fully in the water when holding your breathe. This step allows you to assess your own capability of whether your will sink or swim. If you still can’t perform the breathing technique properly, return back to dry land to master the step.  

2.  Bobbing

The purpose of bobbing is to practice rhythmic breathing.  

· Face the pool edge while holding comfortably onto the pool edge  

· Slowly bob your head up and down the water while holding onto the pool edge  

· Inhale, bend your knees and elbows and slowly submerge your head  

· Exhale the air through your nose as you slowly lower yourself  

· Come back up, inhale, bob and exhale.  

 3. Floating  

You can swim no matter how high or low you float. There are different types of floating style. But the number one floating style needed to swim is the prone float also known as dead-man’s float. The prone float is a floating position with your body in a straight line, face down and arms straight forward. Hold your breath as long as you can and if you need to need to breathe, stand up and proceed to the next step.  

 4.  Flutter Kick

This the most basic of all kicks, also known as freestyle kick. The legs are straight with toes pointed and alternately move them up and down.  

If this is your first time to practice the flutter kick, just sit at the pool edge. As stated, straighten your legs, point your toes and move them up and down in an alternate manner. 

After you have practiced at the pool edge, you may now add you flutter kick to your prone float. You may either hold onto the wall, or use a kickboard. If you have mastered the flutter kick, it is now time to proceed to the next step.  

 5. Front Arm Crawl  

This is usually the fastest and easiest of the four primary strokes. The front arm crawl is also known as Freestyle. The arms move alternately from side to side, when one arm is pulling or pushing the other arm is recovering. The arm movement propels you to move forward. The pull movement creates a semicircle. Pushing the palm back through the water underneath the body and make sure that your hand passes through the waist. Recover and repeat the steps over.  

Combine all the steps: Breathing, Prone Float, Flutter Kick and the Front Arm Crawl and you will now know how to swim the basics. The other strokes like the Butterfly, Backstroke and Breaststroke are just modifications of the basics, so when you learn the basics and master them you can also learn the other strokes. 

Remember that always stretch before swimming, warm up and cool down before and after an intense workout.
