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'.

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.
