Hand Paddles Heighten Awareness of +/- Accelerations

Hand paddles can help a swim coach discover hidden technical flaws in a number of ways. So continue to progressively load volume and intensity to properly stress acceleration(s) specific to creating and sustaining maximal force throughout a stroke cycle. In order to find the flaws, simply be aware of any small pauses that are followed by 'excitable' movements.

Swimming Workout Periodization: It's easier than it sounds.

Coaching is an art, a science, and a maddening pursuit of refining excellence in another's performance. And designing a swimming workout and/or season(s) plan is no different.

Machine Learning Breaststroke from Swimming Videos: A Coach’s Vision

A friend once told me, "You don’t need to be a great swimmer to be an amazing coach, but it sure does help." The athletic experience is earned, and easily relatable to immediate challenges any swimmer faces. But coaching is about sharing what we've learned. So while initially, I understood a great deal about swimming, breaststroke had never 'come easily' - nor been taught to me.

Benefits of Swimming with Great Body Position

Body position in swimming is very important when balancing a powerful kick and a strong catch. One of the benefits of swimming with great position is connecting the kick and catch outputs throughout an entire workout and/or race to maximize performance. And the major challenge to maintaining a long stable body (great position) paired with dynamic, rapid kicking and pulling is neuromuscular fatigue. A swimmer's 'timing' simply starts to 'misfire'.

How to Swim with Purpose: Engaged, Informed and Undettered

Perception is knowing what you do and don’t understand - through any sense. To learn how to swim we focus on those that resonate best with our learning style. And most learners are highly visual.

How Paddles can Help Improve your Catch in Swimming

The catch in swimming is not a moment in time. Rather its a series of dynamic movements to initiate the propulsive phase of all swimming strokes and we wanted to accentuate that feeling with our Mimic Swim Paddles. And give you a better understanding of your progress with the stroke visualizations in the KineFusion Swimming app.

Using Swim Paddle Size to Train Correct Muscle Groups and Fibers

Many swimmers speed up their tempo to compensate as they 'slip' (technique fails) and 'the piano drops' (physiological exhaustion). By decreasing the perception of and biological markers correlated to fatigue, swimmers can utilize hand paddles to recruit the correct muscle groups and fibers for strokes and distances.

Swimming Workouts that Transform Exercise into Customized Training

Transformative coaching works with you to create the best version of your swimming. A great coach knows when to use any piece of equipment, to change tone to motivate, to adapt a workout ‘on the fly’, and generally inspire individual athletes with specific messaging.

Why Swim Paddles?

Any product is simply a story waiting to be told. My old blue strokemakers swim paddles certainly carried a story. And a service is merely a message waiting to be shared. Ask any coach stubbornly repeating warmup for the 10th time to 9 unique athletes (yes I did the math right). But a community is created when both earnestly compliment one another without compromising intention.

Coaching Best Performances while Coaxing Machine Swimming Vision Out

Perhaps it’s a penchant for coffee, but Voltaire would have made a fantastic swim coach. He realized that perfect is the enemy of good. Winning a race is not time standing still, its a compilation of processes over time that put an athlete in position to accomplish their goals. And training is about making the most of those opportunities with the time and resources at our disposal. Athlete engagement takes precedent over coaching genius.
