Quick-Fix Swimming Exercises

Take YOUR basic swimming technique to the next level

These swimming exercises are designed to force us to focus on one specific part of our swimming technique.  If that specific part happens to be your weakness and you are focusing on the finer details of that part, then you are a very short step away from unlocking the full potential of your swimming stroke.

Correct swimming technique allows us to swim longer distances with less effort but if the basic stroke technique is not correct then swimming instantly becomes hard work. Discover some simple swimming exercises to help learn and improve the four basic swimming strokes:

Are these swimming exercises easy?

Yes, they are very easy to follow.  Each specific exercise focuses on a certain aspect of the swimming stroke, for example the body position, the leg kick, the arms, the breathing or the timing and coordination, all separated into easy to learn stages.  Each one contains a photograph of the exercise being performed, a graphical diagram and all the technique elements and key focus points that are relevant to that particular exercise.

How will they help my basic swimming techniques?

They break down your swimming stroke into its core elements and then force you to focus on that certain area.  For example if you are performing a leg kick exercise, the leg kick is isolated and therefore your focus and concentration is only on the legs.  The technical information and key focus points then fix your concentration on the most important elements of the leg kick.  The result: a more efficient and technically correct leg kick. The same then goes for exercises for the arms, breathing, timing and coordination and so on. 

Will they improve my basic swimming strokes?

Yes, definitely! The water exercises not only isolate certain areas but can highlight your bad habits.  Once you've worked though each element of the stroke and practiced the exercises a few times, you will slowly eliminate your bad habits.  The result:  a more efficient and technically correct swimming stroke, swum with less effort.
