Breathing exercise

"We revolt simply because, for many reasons, we can no longer breathe”  -  Frantz Fanon

Do you use any progressions in your coaching, e.g. techique?
Like breathing?

  • 3 bottom jumps (exhale underwater, fast inhale during over surface portition of jump) + swim 25
  • 3 bottom jumps with complete exhale in deep squat at bottom, then jump up + swim 25

then move to maybe to some swimming with focus on breathing in various stroke?

“nose out, mouth in”

After that you might focus on freestyle breathing, starting:

  • 25 swimming freestyle taking breath only from looking  to same wall “when you take breath, only take from this window side.”
  • 25 same as up, looking to the same wall, and swimmer breath from the otherside than prev. 25….
  • 25 freestyle take breath from front, just like sighting on open water swimming


have fun.

Joe Przytula – offers some shoulder thoughts.

Vern Gambetta – We need to train. Just get out there now – run, jump, throw, lift, push, pull, twist, and turn and get tired with a purpose. Have something to eat, take a nap, get some rest and go out and get after it again. Does it really have to be more complicated than that?

Brooks T. Johnson -Once the ATHLETIC ( science ) and BALLETIC ( creative ) aspects of the event are in some acceptable and consistent order, then we need to consider how we can best bring about the BALLISTIC ( velocity/speed ) phase into productive play. Since we have already established that LET is the #1 prioirity in the sport, this is the final but most crucial element in the triad and trilogy of ATHLETIC – BALLETIC – BALLISTIC .
