I haven't yet learned to breathe while swimming, but by using a snorkle I get 30-minutes of "swimming" every day. Right now, I'm primarily interested in the physical benefits of swimming, but I'll eventually get around to learning to swim properly. Anyway, at present, I do the following:
(1) With snorkle, SHORT SWIM FINS, and tiny float board designed for underwater use: I swim loops underwater continuously for thirty-minutes using only my legs.
(2) With snorkle, pull buoy, and swim fins: I swim loops underwater continuously for thirty-minutes using only my arms.
I have no problems doing the above routines, but I haven't been able to swim using only my legs if I don't use swim fins. My legs keep dropping.
QUESTION: Should I be able to swim using only my legs without swim fins? Can anyone do that?
