School of Tri Classroom: Swimming Tips and Drills for Triathletes
Welcome to the Swimming Classroom!
Although swimming is the shortest leg in a triathlon, it’s often the most difficult for triathletes unless they come from a swimming background.
In this classroom, we’ll explore swimming in the following lessons:
- Freestyle Swim Technique to include proper stroke technique, kicking and flip turns.
- Swimming in Open Water to include managing anxiety, sighting (both in open water and practicing in the pool) and how to put on a wetsuit.
For more help with swimming technique, be sure to check out our swim drill videos, which break down the freestyle stroke into separate components allowing you to focus on each component.
