In the same way as surfing, skateboarding and skiing, swimming is primarily a sport of gliding. They are very much appreciated sports by the feeling of fullness and the full awareness of their own body.
In swimming the most important quality is this slippage. It allows to reach a higher speed without too many efforts. In addition, also allows for the best of the already on hard sport that is swimming. It’s the real Holy Grail of swimmer.
However, achieving a good sliding in swimming is not so easy. It is the result of a good propulsion, the perfect placement of the body and excellent coordination.
The Butterfly is a symmetric and alternating style . It coordination is not correct, occurs when a braking effect on the slide. The key is to make ripples properly to promote effectively and thus move forward with speed and fluidity.
The first ripple occurs after traction underwater of the upper part of the body. It aims to propel the body forward (not upward) to be able to breathe and anticipate the return of the arms.
The second ripple occurs almost immediately after the first. When are the arms stretched and ahead. It is the time right in that slippage occurs. It is using the momentum of the lower limbs to “stretch” above the water and take advantage of the hydrodynamic.
If we look at the best Butterfly swimmers , will see that they swim smoothly. They perform a few undulations that appear natural and continuous, with whole body and not just your legs. This technique smooth gliding can be best advanced in the water and reduces fatigue significantly.
The back is a style with alternating but asymmetric, allowing advance continuously without interruption. However, leg coordination is very important, especially when having to add flotation. It is clear that a body in a horizontal position on the water will have to slide and therefore easier to move.
The back sliding key lies especially in the movement of the legs. Apart from the impulse, the legs also help to keep the pelvis on the surface of the water and stabilize the hips to get a perfect horizontal position and a better hydrodynamic(less brake).
The momentum of the arms is made of up down the body to avoid small jumps and move forward in a continuous and homogeneous way.
The lower part of the back we must bow to raise the pelvis and hips.
The batting of the legs can become so regular push to keep the members of the lower part of the body afloat.Otherwise, the legs are more immersed in the water and cause a resistance which prevents sliding.
In back, the more stretched body and legs are closer to the surface, more effective will be the boost and, consequently,sliding by water will be higher.
Like Butterfly, breaststroke is a symmetrical style alternated, so achieve the sliding is slightly more difficult. We highlight the “broken” nature of this style can lead to deadlocks and them to break the nadadorLa breaststroke is different from the Butterfly because the movements are carried out on an intermittent basis (ripple movements remain almost on a continuous basis).
Once again necessary coordination (dissociation between the movements of the arms and legs) to achieve a glide fluid and effective.
Impulse with the upper part of the body causes the elevation of the head to breathe. Of arms spinning in the direction of the body and front indicates the time in which you have to prepare your legs.
Movement of Scissor legs gives a boost while the back to stretch the arms.
It is right after this phase that occurs the slip. The drive with the legs must be sufficiently strong to carry the body forward. The extension of arms has to be more possible to not stop hydrodynamics. During this time no rush, but take advantage of the slide before starting the cycle again.
Smooth coordination, with arms and legs, alternating in the momentum, not to mention the time of sliding, increases the power of swimming and provides a maximum of sensations.
Like back crawl is asymmetric and alternate swimming technique. Good coordination is required the slip in the water is to be effective. Otherwise there may be to brakes and dead spots, especially when breathing.
Once again, speaking of sliding reference both flotation and the decrease of braking we do when we move.
Arms pulling is performed from above to below the body. When they get back to the front, we spread them out to get a best glide in the water.
Breathing should be as brief as possible to not decentering the coordination of movements.
As in back (but upside down), the body must be «on the water», so that both the pelvis and legs must remain closer to the surface. The regular batting allow propel, stabilize the hips and keep the upper part of the body “show of hands”.
Most of the fastest professional in crawl made all these moves at a breakneck speed to take advantage of the momentum, sliding and the hydrodynamic:
Arms outstretched for the amplitude.
Apnea in breathing.
Propulsion and floatation thanks to a great effort in the batting.
In addition, the torso tends to bend slightly to remain ‘above the water».
In short, swimming is a sport in which stretch the body is very important to move efficiently in water. With a goodsliding swimmer gains speed at the time enjoying the sensations aquatic.
And don’t forget: in swimming, the water is not your enemy but an ally. Do not fight against it, serve it to glide, move forward and enjoy!!
