At the swimming training sessions, one of the fundamental things you learn is body positioning. Body positioning is very crucial to great swimming, as your head and body have to be properly aligned in order to move swiftly in water. You should be completely horizontal in water, meaning your head, chest, and eyes have to be focused straight down in water, so you glide easily. Without proper training, a lot of swimmers never get their positioning right, which delays their growth in the sport.
Breathing is the next important aspect. Breathing in water is no easy task, and many swimmers take time to learn proper breathing techniques. Humans are more accustomed to breathing in air, and in water, they will have their head and face submerged in water. As a swimmer, you need to get used to having water around, and using the various breathing techniques to breathe properly. With expert training, you will learn how to breathe in rhythm and on any side (left or right), which will significantly improve your swimming technique.
Swimming is best performed through strokes, like breast stroke, backstroke, to name a few. All of these techniques have their advantages and best scenarios to utilize. As a swimmer, you need to be comfortable in one or two swimming strokes, for which you can train and focus on getting better at.
As a swimmer, the sport helps you keep fit and healthy. Because the water offers an almost weightless environment, there is minimum risk of injuring your joints. All the muscles of your body get the exercise they require to grow strong. Your movement in water greatly aids your flexibility, mobility, and range of motion. Your muscles are well toned, and your cardiovascular system improves significantly. Mentally, you build focus and resilience, as the process of pushing the water allows you to grow in these areas.
