    drag suit use

    For 60% of my workouts I swim in an old suit that is stretched out and acts like a parachute in the water. I choose certain days to wear a regular suit that has no drag. I also use a "drag belt" which is a suit that looks like a guys suit, but has pockets on it to create significant drag.
    Does anyone else out there use drag for conditioning? It it good to do this?

    I use a Speedo perforated drag suit for all my workouts. It slows my 100 pace by about 2 seconds but its less drag than the pocketed style. As long as you dont have shoulder issues I think its fine to use it. I've been using a drag suit since I began swimming Masters in 1999.

    I think drag suit is very comfortable during swimming.

    Have you tried DragSox? Those create incredible resistance.
