The Need for Speed with the Force Velocity Relationship

swimming downhill

Swimming ‘fast’ sometimes feels out of control – just on the edge of ‘overswimming’ and/or ‘spinning our wheels’. Its one reason why were faster in SCM than LCM. Swimmers can use walls to generate speed when acceleration no longer meets the force-velocity relationship.

Everyone wants it. Some have even felt it. To achieve speeds we havent encountered before we use equipment like the Mimic Swim Paddles to artificially simulate it for motor learning.

Try out the force test set of 8 variable 25s on 1:30 to find your starting point and inform a roadmap to achieving new personal bests in training and racing.
