Using Swim Paddle Size to Train Correct Muscle Groups and Fibers

swimming paddle technique
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.

To Find your Feel for the water get Creative within Swimming Workouts

Form (swimming technique), force (anaerobic ‘power’), flow (aerobic ‘capacity’) independent of one another are just skills and drills. When they are intertwined together, the magic that coaches and ‘lifers’ refer to as ‘feel for the water’ emerges out of perceptual chaos.

 

Swimming Workouts From, On and With Hand Paddles

Augmented reality (AR) is opening up nearly endless possibilities to communicate and engage with our world. And with AR on a swim paddle, you can experience just about anything you can imagine at the pool. Break down the swimming mechanics of freestyle before diving in. Or have a coach walk you through the most important parts of a workout before you push off. The boundaries for coaching anyone, including yourself, are virtually limitless.

Finding Force Inside Swimming

On the surface, it would appear that force and flow are opposing dualities. But like many polar opposites, these two are drawn together beneath the surface because force(s) are always at play, even when we feel our swimming is at its most effortless.

In Swimming Sometimes you Just Go with the Flow

In any swimming workout, sometimes you're along for the ride and other times you're just getting through. Bridging the connection at the right time can make all the difference as you find your flow.

Form is Great Swimming Technique Trained into Best Performances

Measuring form is the perfect place to start your training as great technique is the building block to phenomenal swimming. Like a water flowing around a rock to bend the rock to water's end - KineFusion equipment and service reflect the need to work with the water to find your own feel.

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.

Swim paddles, watches, and phones aren’t smart, people are smart

There is and will continue to be a great deal of discussion around artificial intelligence. You know, Skynet from the Terminator series.

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.

VO2 Max – Inconceivable! I do not think it means what you think it means.

Clearly, the solution to performance plateaus must be sports science. So we did the submaximal work. The same ridiculous collection of CO2 and VO2 gases to determine a specific VO2max from graded, stepped efforts of long breaststroke swims – now what to do with it? The man was ‘fit’. After all he was an Olympic athlete.

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.

Augmented Reality as the New Old Magic in Swimming Dreams

The Charlotte Ultraswim was the last meet I ever raced and, despite a brief dalliance coaching my former high school last year, was the last meet I ever coached. Both times I recall sitting in the stands and wondering if athletes, coaches, and fans saw the event the same way?
